Battle of Athens

This 12-minute video clip from the movie, "Battle of Athens" is a film production, but the incident really did happen. Athens is about 20 miles north of Cleveland, Tennessee. The story is chilling, and it's the reason we have the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

A couple of years ago someone from Tennessee recounted a conversation with an old man who had been a boy at the time of the Battle of Athens. His father had taken a part in it. The man remembered how his mother had been up all night worrying about her husband. 

In the morning the man said that his father came home, put his shotgun behind the kitchen door and sat down to his breakfast, and no one in the family ever said another word about that night.
