The United States vs. Pvt. Chelsea Manning (published 22/08/2016)

Following a court-martial, on August 21, 2013, Private Chelsea Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison for disclosing a cache of military and diplomatic documents to WikiLeaks. Three years to the day since this sentence was handed down, Manning’s appeal progresses slowly and her supporters continue to voice concern over the state of her physical and mental health in confinement—as well as her treatment by authorities. 


The year of her conviction, OR Books published The United States vs. Pvt. Chelsea Manning, a graphic account of the court-martial compiled real-time inside the courtroom by artist and activist Clark Stoeckley. The day after her sentencing, Private Chelsea Manning came out as transgender, and indicated she wished to live life as a woman. The text of our book was drawn exclusively from transcripts of the trial itself which refer to Private Manning using her former name and gender. What follows, in her own words, is an account of the pre-trial confinement of the whistleblower sometimes called “America’s foremost political prisoner.”
