Product Description

History totally vindicates Nathan Bedford Forrest of the biased charge that the Battle of Ft. Pillow was a massacre!

Many historians have pointed their self-righteous fingers at Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest, calling him, “the Butcher of Fort Pillow,” and have permeated the myth that he set off, and participated in, a frenzied “racist massacre” of U.S. Colored Troops attempting to surrender at the Battle of Ft. Pillow, Tennessee, on April 12, 1864. The goal of this book is to present the historical facts as to what really happened at Ft. Pillow on that eventful day.
