Long ago there was a movie called 'Taproots' very loosely based on the Jones County rebellion.



Quote:
Tap Roots is a 1948 period film set during the American Civil War. It is very loosely based on the true life story of Newton Knight, a farm owner who attempted to secede Jones County from Mississippi.[3]


Noow there's a more historically correct telling of the tale.
