A recent comment on If They Mean to Have A War, Let It Begin Here!, brought to my attention the events of August 1-2, 1946. Until the comment, I had never heard of this incident. But it is a true story that everyone should hear!
The Battle of Athens, TN, 1946; a well regulated militia of WWII veterans exercised their 2nd amendment rights and overthrew their tyrannical and corrupt county government in Tennessee that was attempting to defraud voters.
Battle of Athens, Dec 1944-Jan 1945: British paras patrol on the perimeter of the Athens gas works. Fighting with communist guerrillas attempting to take over Greece was fierce. The British, and the forces of the Greek interim government, finally prevailed thanks to superior firepower and military tactics.
