      In The Wake Of The Assassins
      When 33-year-old John Patterson came home from the army after service in both World War II and the Korean War, he wanted to open up a law practice and have a good life. But when four shots rang out on the night of June 18, 1954, his life changed forever. His father, Albert Patterson, had been nominated attorney general of the state of Alabama on a platform of cleaning up the mob-controlled town of Phenix City. Within a few days after his primary victory, Albert Patterson was brutally murdered outside his office. John Patterson felt he had not choice but to take his father’s place as the state’s attorney general, finish the cleanup his father had set out to do, and hunt down his father’s killers. John Patterson’s story, related in the film by Patterson himself and many other figures of that era, bridges a time of dramatic change in Alabama and U.S. history.

      1963 June 11- Vivian Malone and James Hood, accompanied by U.S. Deputy
      Attorney General Nicholas Katzenbach, attempt to register at

      Wallace, who bodily blocks their entrance to a campus
      building. When National Guardsmen return later in the day
      with Malone and Hood to enter the building, Wallace steps
      aside.
