Synopsis: Generally, it brings America’s mythic and misunderstood southern mountain people to life and reveal their pivotal but unsung role in forming the nation and forging the American character. It discusses the largest civil insurrection since the Civil War — the Battle for Blair Mountain in the violent West Virginia coalfields in 1921, when a self-proclaimed Redneck Army of 10,000 coal miners fought for their right to organize.
