The Nathan Bedford Forrest Tour

This past weekend we enjoyed learning more about the exciting history of a very controversial character, Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest. The tour began at his boyhood home about an hour away from where we live and concluded at the Brice’s Crossroads battlefield down near Baldwyn, Mississippi. Below are a few of the photographic highlights from the weekend.
