I was just passing through the Deep South at the time so they may have been common there back then. I grew up in southeast Texas and I never saw any there. What we had in Texas to control work gangs was a guard with a rifle, sitting on a horse. If someone tried to escape he would just chase them down with his horse and shoot them if necessary.
