Loosely based on the real "Battle of Athens" in Athens, Tennessee. In 1946 a political party made up of mostly returning GIs from WWII took on a corrupt political machine that ran the county and most of the state. When ballot boxes were stolen and taken to the jail by deputies, gunfire and explosives were used to retrieve them. There were no fatalities, but several injuries on both sides of the conflict.

This is the TRUE story of what happened in Athens, Tennessee in 1946. It's not just a good underdog story, it's about the Constitution Of the United States of America and the Bill of Rights and what it affords us as citizens. These veterans employed their rights to take back the right of the populace and their freedom from the Democrat controlled area and law enforcement. Truly a lesson for all in what our founding fathers had set down to protect us citizens.
