Alabama Constitutional Militia

After the common inactivity of the militias in every state, the Alabama Constitutional Militia was reactivated by Jeff Randall and Mike Kemp in 1995, who first called it the Gadsden Minutemen, since it was based in Etowah County, of which Gadsden is the county seat. It has now expanded statewide.

  1. Hillbilly Rendition — Report from attendee at the May 17-19 Alabama meeting
  2. Good Ol' Boys Roundup — Report on meeting in Alabama of militia activists from 20 states held May 17-19, 1996. Name of the meeting mocks the name of the annual meeting of law enforcement agents which the militias exposed as an orgy of racism.

Achilles Heel
The most famous of recent operations, the Alabama Constitutional Militia, in cooperation with the constitutional militias of Missouri and Tennessee, infiltrated and exposed the Good O' Boys Roundup, held annually in Eastern Tennessee, a gathering of federal, state, and local law enforcement personnel from several states, which was a celebration of racism and contempt for the constitutional rights of citizens. The infiltrator(s) videotaped the events there, and released the tapes to the media, resulting in a major embarrassment for the government and law enforcement agencies, which have now been revealed to the public as hotbeds of racism, corruption, and abuse. Further exposures can be expected.
Facility Patrols
In response to concerns about possible attacks on government facilities during the days surrounding April 19, 1996, Militia volunteers mustered and patrolled likely targets to provide protection.

Other Alabama Patriot Groups

  1. The Alabama Constitution Project — Effort to rewrite the state constitution, which is poorly written, disorganized and too long. But it is important that this be done right. Alabamans are urged to get involved in this effort.


Reformers are known by their adversaries, and it is appropriate that those adversaries be identified and what is known about them be told. They include corrupt and abusive officials, corporations, groups, and individuals.
