General Nathan Bedford Forrest was one of the most prominent Confederate Cavalry leaders during the War Between the States. General Robert E. Lee was once asked who the greatest Confederate General was of the war and he replied, “Sir, a gentleman I have never had the pleasure to meet, General Nathan Bedford Forrest.” His war exploits were epic to say the least. Throughout the conflict, Forrest was wounded on at least 35 times while having his horse shot out from under him on 8 separate occasions.
Forrest was both hated and feared by the Yankee invader, and he used this to his advantage. He made it known that this 12-star battle flag was his flag. This had somewhat of a psychological effect on the enemy who knew they weren’t just fighting a regular Confederate force, they were fighting Nathan Bedford Forrest.
