Special | 29m 51s

An MPB original documentary, “Mississippi’s Free State of Jones” is the story of Jones County’s controversial Knight-errant, the rebellion he led, and the consequences of his actions, both then and now. With commentary by Civil War historians and members of Knight’s family, we search for the truth behind the legend, and for what that truth says to us today.
