“Whipping post”, Delaware, ca.1900  Even into the 20th century, Delaware employed whipping as a form of punishment for crimes. “Poisoning someone could bring 60 lashes. Trafficking in stolen mules could mean 20 lashes, as compared to wife beating, which could get as few as five.” The last recorded use was in 1952 when a wife beater got 20 lashes, although the law remained on the books until the 1970s.
