This zine covers an obscure but phenomenal story of coal miners' and convicts' joint rebellion against the convict leasing system in post-Civil War Tennessee. Touching on the issues of prison growth, racial identities in the south, the limitations of demand-oriented movements, and the application of contemporary insurrectionary perspectives in understanding historical phenomena, it is "required reading" for anyone interested in appalachian social movements, insurrection, or historical positioning of the southern white worker.
