Banding together with other small farmers and with the assistance of local slaves, defiant Southern farmer Newt Knight launched an uprising that led Jones County, Mississippi to secede from the Confederacy, creating a Free State of Jones.

His marriage to a former slave, Rachel, and his subsequent establishment of a mixed race community was unique in the post-war South. Knight continued his struggle into Reconstruction, distinguishing him as a compelling, if controversial, figure of defiance long beyond the War.

Rated R for brutal battle scenes and disturbing graphic images.

Box office gross: $20.8 million. View box office history.
