Usage examples for incarcerate

  1. I repeatedly heard, while in Lexington, Kentucky, during the winter of 1836- 7, of the wanton cruelty practised by this woman upon her slaves, and that she had caused several to be whipped to death; but I never heard that she was suspected of being deranged, otherwise than by the indulgence of an ungoverned temper, until I heard that her husband was attempting to incarcerate her in the Lunatic Asylum. – The Anti-Slavery Examiner, Omnibus by American Anti-Slavery Society
