The Battle of Athens - 1946
#1

This occurred in 1946, right here in America, when returning WWII vets had finally had enough in a corrupt county in Tennessee. How many of you knew about this event? I didn't.

 

Speaks volumes about the second amendment, doesn't it boys and girls? Even Eleanor Roosevelt spoke to this, known as the Battle of Athens.
