Nathan Bedford Forrest’s critics have called him everything from a violent backwoodsman, illiterate redneck, and cruel slaver, to a crooked politician, unfaithful husband, and
simple-minded hillbilly. However, traditional unreconstructed writers, like award-winning Southern historian and Tennessee author Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook, know that General
Forrest was none of these things. In fact, he was quite the opposite, as is revealed in Seabrook’s classic bestseller: Nathan Bedford Forrest: Southern Hero, American Patriot.
As we learn in this enlightening little book, far from being an inhumane slave owner and trader, Forrest granted most of his servants their freedom even before Lincoln’s War.
Others he enlisted in his own command (half of dozen who served as his personal guards), then emancipated them in the fall of 1863 - the same year Lincoln issued his “military
measure,” the fake and illegal Emancipation Proclamation (which freed no slaves in either the North or the South). Forrest never separated servant families, refused to sell to cruel
slavers, and was even responsible for reuniting several divided black families.
Unlike Lincoln - who throughout his life repeatedly blocked black civil rights and aggressively campaigned for American apartheid and the deportation of all blacks out of the U.S. -
after the War Forrest happily hired back his original servants with full civil rights, then called for the South to repopulate herself with new African immigrants. Neither the founder or
leader of the original 19th-Century KKK (which has no connection to today’s KKK) as pro-North and New South historians disingenuously teach, the influential Forrest closed the
anti-carpetbag organization down in 1869 when it was infiltrated by imposters, who began committing crimes under the KKK banner.
These and many other captivating facts are presented clearly and concisely by Col. Seabrook, a cousin of Forrest, in this tourist-friendly, rousing defense of the Wizard of the Saddle, one of the greatest, most
inspiring, beloved, romantic, complex, and intriguing figures in American history. Written for the general market, Nathan Bedford Forrest is the first of Col. Seabrook’s 12 books on the General, and is one of our
top sellers. Lavishly illustrated and formatted in an easy-to-read style, at 120 pages this short inexpensive book is perfect for Civil War museum shops, historic homes, or any tourist hot spot. Makes a great gift as
well. Nathan Bedford Forrest, based on Col. Seabrook’s more scholarly 822-page award-winning bestseller, A Rebel Born: A Defense of Nathan Bedford Forrest, includes footnotes, a bibliography, and an index.
