A Biography of Nathan Bedford Forrest For Teens
In this small
but exciting information packed book, Saddle, Sword, and Gun,
Forrest scholar and relative Lochlainn Seabrook takes an inside look at
the fascinating life story of Southern hero Confederate General Nathan
Bedford Forrest. Written for teens and young adults (ages 13-18),
Mr. Seabrook restores the legacy of one of American history's greatest
figures—a legacy tarnished by 150 years of Yankee lies, slander, and
Ride along with Forrest and get a firsthand look at his childhood in
Tennessee, his teens in Mississippi, his first years away from home, his
marriage and children, his multimillion dollar businesses, the start of
the American "Civil War," his enrollment in the Confederate army, and
his rise to fame as a daring and successful Rebel officer. Thrill
to the dramatic descriptions of General Forrest's exploits on and off
the battlefield as he and his courageous cavalry (which included 64
black Confederate soldiers) fought their way across the South defending
hearth, home, honor, and the constitutional right of self-government.
Find out why the General's men loved and respected him, why the Southern
people looked up to him as their "Spiritual Comforter," and why he freed
his slaves years before Lincoln issued his fake and illegal Emancipation
Proclamation. After Lincoln's War, follow Forrest as he rebuilt
his life from scratch, and helped the South regain her political power
and dignity during the Yankees' cruel and revengeful "Reconstruction"
period. See how the great Confederate chieftain lived out his
final years campaigning for black civil rights, giving generously to
charities, forgiving the North, and working to heal the physical and
emotional wounds left by the War for Southern Independence.
Along the way, you will learn the truth about Forrest and Southern
slavery and about Lincoln's War on the Constitution and the American
people, truths that have been hidden for a century and a half by
uneducated enemies of the South. Parents, you will enjoy reading
this heavily illustrated compact little book as well, for it contains
hundreds of important historical facts that neither you or your children
were ever taught in school.
Mr. Seabrook's sixth book on Forrest, Saddle, Sword, and Gun is a
significant work that will change hearts and minds regarding one of the
most inspirational, gallant, colorful, and riveting figures in world
history, a man who to this day is loved by millions of people of all
races around the globe: famed Tennessean Nathan Bedford Forrest!
