The United States Penitentiary in Atlanta is no longer a penitentiary. It used to be a high-security federal penitentiary. Now it’s a medium-security federal prison, but it still has the huge wall surrounding it. The Bureau of Prisons remodeled the 100+ year old prison in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The prison has a long history, as it was the second federal penitentiary in existence. I’ve written extensively about the first eight years of my prison term, which I spent in USP Atlanta.
