DESCRIPTION Though Nathan Bedford Forrest was not a writer, had little formal education, never authored a book, and was not a professional speaker, he did leave us with a number of witty comments, profound words, and sublime statements. Award-winning author, Southern historian, and Forrest scholar Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook (who holds the world record for writing the most books about Forrest) has gathered together some of the more memorable and impressive of these and forged them into a small but fascinating work: The Quotable Nathan Bedford Forrest. Among the nearly 140 footnoted quotes included here are Forrest’s thoughts on warfare, military rules, West Point graduates, education, friendship, and even drinking, gambling, cussing, and morality. Seabrook, author of the worldwide bestseller, A Rebel Born: A Defense of Nathan Bedford Forrest, has also included excerpts from newspaper interviews, Forrest’s postwar appearance before the U.S. Joint Select Committee, and numerous examples of the General’s personal notes and letters and, of course, his military dispatches and reports. Much of what Forrest said was never written down but was recorded from the memory of those who associated with him. Particularly poignant is the inclusion of Forrest’s black equal rights speech to the Independent Order of Pole Bearers, the forerunner of the modern NAACP, chronicled by a local reporter. From the General’s own words we learn that he was not an “illiterate inbred hillbilly,” a “monstrous racist,” or a “cruel and violent slave owner,” as the North and New South disingenuously continue to preach. Quite the opposite. He was not only, as Confederate General Richard Taylor said of him, a “tender-hearted, kindly man,” he was also a true Southern gentleman, a fair and compassionate Rebel officer, a successful businessman, and a faithful husband who loved children, protected women, and gave charitably to war veterans, orphans, and widows. A staunch supporter of both states’ rights and black civil rights, one who freed his slaves years before Abraham Lincoln issued his fraudulent Emancipation Proclamation, unlike the North, conservative Southerner Forrest stood firmly behind our country’s most sacred document, the Constitution, before, during, and after Lincoln’s War. This Civil War Sesquicentennial Edition of The Quotable Nathan Bedford Forrest is a brief but important work that, like Seabrook’s other eleven books on the General, will introduce him to new readers, help destroy the numerous absurd and slanderous Left-wing myths surrounding him, and bring him out of the shadows and into the mainstream of American history where he justly belongs. Obscured for the past 150 years by gaslighting Truth-haters, now discover the real man for yourself - in his own words. An attractive, unique, affordable, and popular tourist-friendly work that will appeal to both casual Civil War buffs and hardcore Civil War scholars alike, The Quotable Nathan Bedford Forrest is a must-read for all those interested in authentic American history.

AMAZON REVIEW, FIVE STARS: "Nathan Bedford Forrest is one of those characters in history who is constantly either misunderstood or intentionally misinterpreted. As he has done in his previous works on Forrest, Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook corrects the misinformation about this great Confederate general, and in the best way possible - using the general's own words. After reading this book, you will no longer view Ol' Bedford as a mean racist, but as a true American hero." - ANDREW MURDAUGH
