Michael R Bradley was first inspired to write about General Forrest’s staff when he stumbled upon a copy of the unpublished minutes of the meetings of the Escort Veterans Association. Once he began his research, he received input and assistance from local historians and members of Sons of Confederate Veterans and United Daughters of the Confederacy. This new volume expands upon his theme, examining the many men who rode with Forrest. Essential readings for any true Civil War aficionado are the detailed rosters of each unit. Included are state, cavalry, and regular army units as well as a complete annotated bibliography and a timeline of Forrest’s military career. Bradly is a well-known military historian who has written extensively on the Civil War. he is a recipient of the Jefferson Davis Medal in Southern History.
