Free State Of Jones

Banding together with other small farmers and local slaves, Southern farmer Newt Knight launched an uprising against the Confederacy that led Jones County, Mississippi to secede from the Confederacy, creating a Free State of Jones. Knight continued his struggle into Reconstruction, distinguishing him as a compelling, if controversial, figure of defiance long beyond the War.
