Volunteers came from across the U.S. to fight Jim Crow laws in Mississippi. Three of them would never go home again, but were murdered for their activities. Despite this level of intimidation, the others carried on, and enormous strides were made in bringing a new political order to Mississippi. Illus. with period photos.
