Ok guy, what rebellions or insurrections have occurred in the US within the past 100 years? There's one inparticular I'm trying to remember, but I can't seem to think of the name.

This is driving me nuts!

I remember reading about a confrontation between coal miners and mine owners in West Virgina, but I don't remember the details.

Those were labor strikes that got way outta hand... There were several, including one or two in the Dakotas IIRC. Several were quite bloody, and involved Army Air Corp bombers being called in.

The Yavapai Standoff of '92?

This is my favorite example to use when someone claims that armed citizens can never force the government to back down.

The best known is Athens, TN.

I've been there, pretty lame.

Perhaps when Haig asserted he was in control after the assasination attempt on Reagan? Maybe that was more of a political coup.

Was Ludlum Colorado in the Twentieth Century? Damn Union Punks

Rodney King Riots?

Bonus Marchers in the 30's –– put down by MacArthur, and source of the original firearm legislation?

Maybe the establishment of Great Smokey's National Park?

Haig was refering to being in charge at the White House, not the Country. But you knew that. It did sound funny.
