Mine Wars

The largest armed conflict in America since the Civil War

Thousands of ordinary citizens faced off against the combined might of the U.S. Army, private armed guards and some of the most powerful corporate forces in America. The U.S. government turned the cutting edge weapons of the time against its own people. Today it would be the equivalent of our military using smart bombs and stealth fighters on its own citizens. These events happened in the wake of the first 9/11 – the first large scale terrorist attack on American soil. This is a fascinating and hidden chapter of our country’s history. It changed America and helped make it the nation it is today, and it’s all here just waiting to be discovered.
