    I decided that needs to be fixed, and so I'm showing this on every forum and site that I post at, to re-educate the people without all the bureaucratic shuck and jive that tends to re-write the history books with B.S. Just thought that everyone that didn't know, had the right to know what they missed.

    I actually knew about the battle of Athens, TN, but I went to a private school and American history was taught in 1962. We only knew what was on the plaque.

    "It can't happen here!!!", it already has.
    The police were "only doing their job"

    It's actually much worse now, the media is far less "fair" than in 1946

    Was very inspiring! Thanks for sharing.
    The only thing more dangerous than ignorance, is arrogance.

    Folks, that was nothing new, that was happening in La, Ga, Florida, KY, W Va and just about everywhere, all over the South, since after the War Between the States. That was a whole nother era. There was segragation, Blacks were second class citizens,etc.

    INteresteing historical tidbit, Paul Cantrell could very well have been a descendant of William Quantrell, of the Missouri-Kansas raids. Apparently he escaped to KY-Tn ( and probably changed his name)......Some folks have pictures of ancestors who rode with him and actually spelled his name Cantrell.

    Theres no education in public school system, they teach conformity, to socialism.

    America is a technocracy, highly advanced tech, ran by a few, ( technicians ) controlled to serve even fewer ( the folks in the know ) while controling the masses indebted to, soon to be attached to. ( everyone not in the first two groups)
