Summary
"From 1863 to 1965, residents of Jones County, Mississippi engaged in an insurrection against the Confederacy that would have repercussions far beyond the scope of the Civil War. Their defiance became legendary, and the line between fact and fiction faded with each passing year. Until now..."--jacket cover
Summary
In Jones County, Mississippi, a farmer named Newton Knight led his neighbors, white and black alike, in an insurrection against the Confederacy at the height of the Civil War. Knight's life story mirrors the little-known story of class struggle in the South--and it shatters the image of the Confederacy as a unified front against the Union
