"Thoreau’s world-famous essay, Civil Disobedience, grew out of a night in July 1846 when he was detained in Concord jail for nonpayment of the poll tax. (…) Ralph Waldo Emerson is reputed to have visited Thoreau in his jail cell. “Why are you here?” Emerson asked. “Why are you not here?” Thoreau replied.”
