The younger agent trained in FBI school runs up against the small town ways of his former Sheriff partner. A highly charged box of fireworks is the best way to describe "Mississippi Burning".

It is and the Civil Rights Movement is tearing apart many areas in the deep south. Mississippi is definitely the hottest spot of all as the entire state seems to be split between whites and African Americans.

Naturally the sheriff's department is difficult to say the least and it appears that it may have even had a part in the apparent murders.

Frances McDormand Oscar-nominated proved that she was a truly gifted actress as the wife of one of the local deputies an evil Brad Dourif.

Alan Parker's smart Oscar-nominated direction and the Oscar-winning cinematography give the film a tense feel that leaves its audience visibly shaken during and after its running time.

Won 1 Oscar. Edit Cast Cast overview, first billed only: Gene Hackman Anderson Willem Dafoe Barnette, 36, went to his Meridian home to take care of a sick family member.

Barnette owned a Meridian garage and was a member of the White Knights. Alton W. Roberts, 26, was a dishonorably discharged U. Marine who worked as a salesman in Meridian.

According to witnesses, Roberts shot both Goodman and Schwerner at point blank range, then shot Chaney in the head after another accomplice, James Jordan, shot him in the abdomen.

Roberts asked, "Are you that nigger lover? Arledge, 27, and Jimmy Snowden, 31, were both Meridian commercial drivers. Arledge, a high school drop-out, and Snowden, a U.

Army veteran, were present during the murders. Jerry M. Sharpe, Billy W. Posey, and Jimmy L. Townsend were all from Philadelphia.

Sharpe, 21, ran a pulp wood supply house. Posey, 28, a Williamsville automobile mechanic, owned a red and white Chevrolet; the car was considered fast and was chosen over Sharpe's.

The youngest was Townsend, 17; he left high school in to work at Posey's Phillips 66 garage. Horace D.

Barnette, 25, was Travis' younger half-brother; he had a two-toned blue Ford Fairlane sedan. Officials say that James Jordan, 38, killed Chaney. He confessed his crimes to the federal authorities in exchange for a plea deal.

The workers arrived at Pilgrim's store, where they may have been inclined to stop and use the telephone, but the presence of a Mississippi Highway Patrol car, manned by Officers Wiggs and Poe, most likely dissuaded them.

They continued south toward Meridian. The lynch mob members, who were in Barnette's and Posey's cars, were drinking while arguing who would kill the three young men.

Eventually Burkes drove up to Barnette's car and told the group: "They're going on 19 toward Meridian. Follow them!

Posey's Chevrolet carried Roberts, Sharpe, and Townsend. The Chevy apparently had carburetor problems, and was forced to the side of the highway. Sharpe and Townsend were ordered to stay with Posey's car and service it.

Soon he stopped them and escorted the three civil right workers north on Highway 19, back in the direction of Philadelphia.

The three men were subsequently shot by Jordan and Roberts. Chaney was also beaten before his death. After the victims had been shot, they were quickly loaded into their station wagon and transported to Burrage's Old Jolly Farm, located along Highway 21 , a few miles southwest of Philadelphia where an earthen dam for a farm pond was under construction.

Tucker was already at the dam waiting for the lynch mob's arrival. Earlier in the day, Burrage, Posey, and Tucker had met at either Posey's gas station or Burrage's garage to discuss these burial details, and Tucker most likely was the one who covered up the bodies using a bulldozer that he owned.

An autopsy of Goodman, showing fragments of red clay in his lungs and grasped in his fists, suggests he was probably buried alive alongside the already dead Chaney and Schwerner.

Well, boys, you've done a good job. You've struck a blow for the white man. Mississippi can be proud of you. You've let those agitating outsiders know where this state stands.

Go home now and forget it. But before you go, I'm looking each one of you in the eye and telling you this: The first man who talks is dead!

If anybody who knows anything about this ever opens his mouth to any outsider about it, then the rest of us are going to kill him just as dead as we killed those three sonofbitches [ sic ] tonight.

Does everybody understand what I'm saying. The man who talks is dead, dead, dead! For reasons unknown, the station wagon was left near a river in northeast Neshoba County along Highway It was soon set ablaze and abandoned.

Unconvinced by the assurances of the Memphis-based agents, Sullivan elected to wait in Memphis Sullivan's instinctive decision to stick around Memphis proved correct.

Early Monday morning, June 22, he was informed of the disappearance The town would be his home for the next nine months.

FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover initially ordered the FBI Office in Meridian, run by John Proctor , to begin a preliminary search after the three men were reported missing.

That evening, U. Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy escalated the search and ordered federal agents to be sent from New Orleans. Joseph Sullivan of the FBI immediately went to the scene.

During the investigation, searchers including Navy divers and FBI agents discovered the bodies of Henry Hezekiah Dee and Charles Eddie Moore in the area the first was found by a fisherman.

They were college students who had disappeared in May Federal searchers also discovered year-old Herbert Oarsby, and five other unidentified Mississippi blacks, whose disappearances in the recent past had not attracted attention outside their local communities.

The disappearance of Chaney, Goodman and Schwerner captured national attention. By the end of the first week, all major news networks were covering their disappearances.

Walter Cronkite 's broadcast of the CBS Evening News on June 25, , called the disappearances "the focus of the whole country's concern". Meanwhile, Mississippi officials resented the outside attention.

Sheriff Rainey said, "They're just hiding and trying to cause a lot of bad publicity for this part of the state. Johnson Jr. X" passed along a tip to federal authorities.

Schwerner and Goodman had each been shot once in the heart; Chaney, a black man, had been severely beaten, castrated and shot three times.

The identity of "Mr. X" was revealed publicly forty years after the original events, and revealed to be Maynard King, a Mississippi Highway Patrol officer close to the head of the FBI investigation.

King died in President Johnson and civil rights activists used the outrage over the activists' deaths to gain passage of the Civil Rights Act of , which Johnson signed on July 2.

This and the Selma to Montgomery marches of contributed to passage of the Voting Rights Act of , which Johnson signed on August 6 of that year.

Malcolm X used the delayed resolution of the case in his argument that the federal government was not protecting black lives, and African-Americans would have to defend themselves: "And the FBI head, Hoover, admits that they know who did it, they've known ever since it happened, and they've done nothing about it.

Civil rights bill down the drain. By late November the FBI accused 21 Mississippi men of engineering a conspiracy to injure, oppress, threaten, and intimidate Chaney, Goodman, and Schwerner.

Most of the suspects were apprehended by the FBI on December 4, Akin, E. Akin, Arledge, T. Two individuals who were not interviewed and photographed, H.

Barnette and James Jordan, would later confess their roles during the murder. Because Mississippi officials refused to prosecute the killers for murder, a state crime, the federal government, led by prosecutor John Doar , charged 18 individuals under 18 U.

Commissioner dismissed the charges six days later, declaring that the confession on which the arrests were based was hearsay. One month later, government attorneys secured indictments against the conspirators from a federal grand jury in Jackson.

On February 24, , however, Federal Judge William Harold Cox , an ardent segregationist, threw out the indictments against all conspirators other than Rainey and Price on the ground that the other seventeen were not acting "under color of state law.

Defense attorneys then made the argument that the original indictments were flawed because the pool of jurors from which the grand jury was drawn contained insufficient numbers of minorities.

Rather than attempt to refute the charge, the government summoned a new grand jury and, on February 28, , won reindictments. Trial in the case of United States v.

Cecil Price, et al. A jury of seven white men and five white women was selected. Defense attorneys exercised peremptory challenges against all seventeen potential black jurors.

A white man, who admitted under questioning by Robert Hauberg, the U. Attorney for Mississippi, that he had been a member of the KKK "a couple of years ago," was challenged for cause, but Cox denied the challenge.

The trial was marked by frequent crises. Star prosecution witness James Jordan cracked under the pressure of anonymous death threats made against him and had to be hospitalized at one point.

The jury deadlocked on its decision and Judge Cox employed the " Allen charge " to bring them to resolution. Seven defendants, mostly from Lauderdale County , were convicted.

The convictions in the case represented the first ever convictions in Mississippi for the killing of a civil rights worker. Sentences ranged from three to ten years.

After exhausting their appeals, the seven began serving their sentences in March None served more than six years. Sheriff Rainey was among those acquitted.

Two of the defendants, E. Barnett, a candidate for sheriff, and Edgar Ray Killen , a local minister, had been strongly implicated in the murders by witnesses, but the jury came to a deadlock on their charges and the Federal prosecutor decided not to retry them.

For much of the next four decades, no legal action was taken regarding the murders. In , on the 25th anniversary of the murders, the U.

Congress passed a non-binding resolution honoring the three men; Senator Trent Lott and the rest of the Mississippi delegation refused to vote for it.

The journalist Jerry Mitchell , an award-winning investigative reporter for Jackson 's The Clarion-Ledger , wrote extensively about the case for six years.

In the late 20th century, Mitchell had earned fame by his investigations that helped secure convictions in several other high-profile Civil Rights Era murder cases, including the murders of Medgar Evers and Vernon Dahmer , and the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham.

In the case of the civil rights workers, Mitchell was aided in developing new evidence, finding new witnesses, and pressuring the state to take action by Barry Bradford, [43] a high school teacher at Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire, Illinois, and three of his students, Allison Nichols, Sarah Siegel, and Brittany Saltiel.

Bradford later achieved recognition for helping Mitchell clear the name of the civil rights martyr Clyde Kennard.

Together the student-teacher team produced a documentary for the National History Day contest. It presented important new evidence and compelling reasons to reopen the case.

Bradford also obtained an interview with Edgar Ray Killen , which helped convince the state to investigate.

Partially by using evidence developed by Bradford, Mitchell was able to determine the identity of "Mr.

X", the mystery informer who had helped the FBI discover the bodies and end the conspiracy of the Klan in Mitchell's investigation and the high school students' work in creating Congressional pressure, national media attention and Bradford's taped conversation with Killen prompted action.

More than 1, people, including civil rights leaders and Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour , joined them to support having the case re-opened.

When the Mississippi Attorney General prosecuted the case, it was the first time the state had taken action against the perpetrators of the murders.

Rita Bender, Michael Schwerner's widow, testified in the trial. His appeal, in which he claimed that no jury of his peers would have convicted him in based on the evidence presented, was rejected by the Supreme Court of Mississippi in Justice Department , announced that there would be no further investigation into the murders.

Numerous works portray or refer to the stories of Chaney, Goodman, and Schwerner, the aftermath of their murders and subsequent trial, and other related events of that summer.

Before his friend Rainey was elected sheriff in , Price worked as a salesman, fireman, and bouncer. He arrested the three men, released them the night of the murders, and chased them down state Highway 19 toward Meridian, eventually re-capturing them at the intersection near House, Mississippi.
