Marcia Gay Harden,
This story actually took place in Athens Tennessee in 1946. A true story called the "Battle of Athens". There was corruption with the sheriff in AThens and in the surrounding towns. People were arrested without cause, election ballot boxes were not counted properly. There were deputies that were doing the Sheriff's bidding. One of the men overseeing the ballot counting on the day of the conflict was actually picked up on a traffic stop and was given the option to pay a fine or participate in the fraudulent election. The polling places were closed early that day to keep additional votes from being placed. Athens is a great place to visit and get this history. I have lived in east TN my whole life and I have just become aware that this issue had happened so close to home.
