Free State of Jones

Overview
Starring Matthew McConaughey and Mehershala Ali, FSOJ tells the story of defiant Southern farmer, Newt Knight, and his extraordinary armed rebellion against the Confederacy. Banding together with other small farmers and local slaves, Knight launched an uprising that led Jones County, Mississippi to secede from the Confederacy, creating a Free State of Jones. Knight continued his struggle into Reconstruction, distinguishing him as a compelling, if controversial, figure of defiance long beyond the War.

Our Role
The website needed to be an interactive hub accessible to both average movie goers interested in history and historians. The website includes 3 layers of content density, designed to allow readers an overview with linked footnotes and primary sources for their curiosity. This website was the first example of a Hollywood film to be fully annotated and footnoted for historical fidelity.
