    Actually, it was the convict leasing system. It became really popular after the Civil War.

    Involuntary servitude is illegal EXCEPT for conviction of a crime per the 13th Amendment of the US Constitution.

    This is the 'Slavery By Another Name' by Douglas A. Blackmon.

    The initial post had a link within the document. The link is below:

    I would recommend looking into the truck system as well.
