About Athens-Clarke County

Athens is home to the National Hockey League team Atlanta Gladiators. The Battle of Athens (also known as the McMinn County War) was a conflict that took place in August 1946 in McMinn County, Tennessee, United States between residents and miners who had been organized as a paramilitary group called "the Committee for Public Safety" against mine owners during labor union organizing efforts. The battle ended with an armed occupation of Athens by nearly 2,000 federal troops sent into the county by President Harry S Truman to restore order after four days of violence and martial law declared by Governor McCord. It followed more than five months of bitter strife pitting striking miners against their employer — the Knoxville Coal Company — which was attempting to replace its employees with non-union workers from out-of-state coal camps under guard supplied by Baldwin–Felts detectives hired from outside companies such as Pinkerton's or Burns Detective Agency; it also involved local law enforcement agencies on both sides.
