DESCRIPTIONIn this small but exciting information packed book, Saddle, Sword, and Gun, award-winning Forrest scholar and relative Colonel 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), Col. Seabrook restores the legacy of one of American history's greatest figures - a legacy tarnished by 150 years of Yankee lies, slander, and anti-South propaganda.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.Col. Seabrook's sixth book (of 12) 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!
