I met Bill White Outside of Tellico Plains, TN in the late 1970's.

Here is a living history interview done in the year 2000 where Bill White talks about his days in WWII and the Battle of Athens.

This is very much worth reading.

If anyone can get a copy of the magazine, “Southern Outdoors”, December, 1978, there is a great article of Bill White hunting wild boar with a spear in the mountains. It also mentions the Battle of Athens.

We knew that there was something bad wrong when we got back over here. And what was wrong [was], we had no freedom. We were over there fighting and being killed every day for freedom and we didn’t have none. We didn’t have no freedom. So we had to make us some freedom. Had to come back and fight another war to get a little freedom.

Kinda says it all doesn't it? Now think how far we've fallen since Bill's time...

Makes me wanna puke at the thought of our own cowardice.
