Tompkinsville in The Guns of the SouthEdit

In Tompkinsville on March 14, 1865, America Will Break members Konrad de Buys and Willem van Pelt were arrested by Union Army Lieutenants Adam Slemmer and James Porter, for smuggling AK-47s over the Confederate border with intent to sell. This resulted in a bargain arranged by Confederate General Lee and Union General Grant, which satisfied everyone except the two arrested men.[1]
