[I met one of Forrest's descendants, selling Confederate flags (of course), at a convention many years ago.

Anybody who tells you racism in America is dead is mistaken.]


Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest who headed the Ku Klux Klan is exhumed along with his wife from Memphis burial site after BLM protests and transferred to museum 200 miles away

The bodies of General Nathan Bedford Forrest, notorious for the massacre of 300 black Union soldiers after they surrendered, and his wife, are being moved ...


Forrest's statue which stood over his grave was removed in December 2017 but the Sons of Confederate Veterans sued Memphis Greenspace, a non-profit which has bought up city property holding Confederate monuments, on the grounds it violated the state's cemetery law and Heritage Protection Law


The Sons of Confederate Veterans then dropped their lawsuit and agreed with Greenspace to disinter the bodies of Forrest and his wife, Mary Ann Montgomery, who will be taken, with the statue, to the National Confederate Museum at Elm Springs in Columbia, Tennessee
