    Helmeted Mississippi Highway Patrolmen wearing gas masks move in on a tent set up by Mississippi Marchers and Canton Negroes in a schoolyard in Canton, Mississippi, on June 24, 1966.
    In the background, clouds of tear gas drift around coughing demonstrators as they make their way out of the tent.​

    My sister and her husband owned a 100 acre farm with an additional home on the land. Canton is basically Black now though, loved it during my stay there ... home of the Canton Spirituals :) Thanks for the drop.
