reform movement and the Battle of Athens (McMinn County, Tennessee)
should be taught to every school kid. I've thought for a long time this
should have a feature film done of it.
Now, the government would consider these heroes "domestic terrorists",
I'm not sure how accurate the weapons part part of the story is - IIRC
some of them may have been souvenirs that the GI's had brought
back from military service and that the veterans had at least one
fully automatic weapon. It's been a while since I read up on this, though
and I could be mistaken on that.
