The Battle of Athens: Restoring the Rule of Law (updated 2x)

Athens, Tennessee, that is.

Now, I wouldn’t want anyone to get any crazy ideas, however, in 1946. . .

I believe that Tennessee is the only state that has armed insurrection in its constitution as an authorized cure for tyranny. But don’t quote me on that. :)


Update I from a correspondent: I never heard of the Battle of Athens, I appreciate the history lesson. If something similar were to happen (today), the feds would wipe out the entire town and NBC would report that it was caused by a massive gas leak. E

Update II: Mr. Jay was kind enough to remind me of his treatise on the subject of revolution and the fact that Tennessee is not the only state with a revolutionary “right” built into its Constitution. More on the subject may also be found at Wikipedia here.
