You should research Forrest and you might be surprised LINKThis is his speech to the Jubilee of Poll Bearers.



I have researched him plenty. The Poll Bearers speech isn't new information to me.

I'm more concerned about the protests this is gonna inevitably start with Memphis being ground zero.

I still have family there.

re: Tennessee Gov. signs Nathan Bedford Forrest Day proclamation
Why the hate for the man in Memphis? He stepped up at the end of his life, made that speech when it damn sure wasn't PC to do so and was a uniter, not a divider.

This needs to be pointed out to people. A lot of them don't even know about it.

I’ve only ever known him as the guy who founded the KKK.


You need to educate yourself - Nathan Bedford Forrest is still studied at US Military Academies for his tactical wizardry. THE most effective cavalry commander on either side of the Civil War.

Forrest was one of the founders of the KKK - but it was organized to oppose the excesses of the Reconstruction era governance imposed on the south.

He disassociate himself from the KKK when it turned toward harassing/attacking blacks.

At least that is the scenario that I learned during my youth.

Unfortunately the Winners get to Write(rewrite) History. Forrest was a Hero and an American Patriot. Most people do not know the true Reason for the Civil War. It’s Sad.

Wrong. Forest Gump shouldn't be used as a historical reference.
