“Triggered by opposition to World War I and the draft, this tenant farmers’ revolt broke out in three counties along Oklahoma’s South Canadian River in August 1917. While antiwar sentiments fueled the Green Corn Rebellion, it actually grew from long-standing grievances many tenants held against local landowners, businessmen, and state and local authorities.”
