Discover, along with The English Nut, the violent meaning that the word DEADLINE originally had.

Episode #72 Title: When deadlines were deadly!

The word itself contains a clue as to its old meaning. Two clues, actually.

‘Dead’ and ‘line’: It was a line in a prison yard. If you crossed it, you were shot dead. Such was the violent beginning of this word. The term arose during the American Civil War, most likely at a prison camp in Andersonville, Georgia, that was notorious for the hellish conditions under which it kept its prisoners.

The Civil War was fought from 1861 to 1865 between the northern US that was loyal to the Union and the southern US that had broken away to form the Confederacy. The prisoners at this camp were northerners – aka Yankees – who had been captured by the Confederates of the south. The earliest reference I could find to ‘deadline’ in this sense is in the Diary of Robert Ransom, a prisoner, dated November 1863:

‘Before noon we were turned into the pen which is merely enclosed by a ditch… The ditch serves as a dead line, and no prisoners must go near the ditch.’ You get a better sense of its violent meaning from this description in The Altoona Tribune of 24th September 1864: ‘Twenty feet inside and parallel to the fence is a light railing, forming the “dead line,” beyond which the projection of a foot or finger is sure to bring the deadly bullet of the sentinel… ‘One poor fellow… was trying to wash his face near the “dead line” railing, when he slipped on the clayey bottom, and fell with his head just outside the fatal border. We shouted to him, but it was too late…’


At some point in the 19th century, the word deadline started being used in printing presses in a different sense (though still not the current one). There was a safe zone in which you had to set the type for printing. If you set it outside this zone, it did not get printed, it was ‘dead’. The line demarcating this zone was known as a deadline. Today, a deadline is simply a time limit for completing something—usually not a life and death situation. Often, you can even get an extension on the time limit.
