On the cold spring morning of March 14, 1912, shots rang out in the tiny, rural, mountain town of Hillsville, Virginia. As gunmen spilled from the courthouse taking their battle through the downtown streets, the judge, sheriff, and the Commonwealth Attorney lay dead in the smoke-filled courtroom. For the first time ever documented on film the story of the Carroll County Courthouse Tragedy is told, one of the worst shootings in United States courthouse history.
