Iowa defiance - 103 years ago

Where has the time gone? In 1905, the New York Times published an article about a defiant school board at Shell Rock, Iowa and the state taking up arms to control the town. Iowa Board of Health Defied by Shell Rock Schools.

Doesn't this sound like a bunch of government-haters that were "un-American"?

Too bad the same defiance couldn't be manifested today. The schools might lose their school-lunch funding.
