The NCR Correctional Facility uprising was a revolt staged by the convicts of the NCR Correctional Facility against the men of the New California Republic who were stationed in the facility itself. All the troopers there were killed; and after the uprising the group of insurgents, renamed Powder Gangers, fled to Primm, Vault 19 or remained at the Correctional Facility.


When the NCR expanded eastward into Nevada they took over the old Southern Nevada Correctional Facility, and created the NCR Correctional Facility. The facility is located near train tracks that run parallel to highway I-15 and the convicts were used to maintain and expand them. According to the Powder Gangers, no correcting was done - only manual labor. So when the majority of NCR troops guarding the facility were called away to patrol the Colorado River, the convicts decided to stage a coup d'etat and took over the facility using improvised weapons and explosives made from small amounts of dynamite they had stashed away. The uprising was succesful and they seized control over the NCRCF. Almost all prison guards who were stationed there were massacred by the revolters, only a few prison guards escaped.
