Overview


This edition includes a modern introduction and a list of suggested further reading.
 
Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest is perhaps the most compelling and complicated individual that the Civil War brought to prominence. In looking at his life and military career, it quickly becomes obvious that for those who admire him, as well as those who despise him, there is no shortage of ammunition. In The Life of General Nathan Bedford Forrest (1899), John Allan Wyeth, a former Confederate soldier who briefly served under Forrest's command, narrates some of the building blocks of the Forrest legend, from his spectacular string of victories as a brave and gifted soldier to his prominent role in the founding of the Ku Klux Klan.

Meet the Author



It is rare for the author of a biography to have led as interesting and accomplished a life as that of his subject, but in John Allan Wyeth, who was by turns a soldier, a medical innovator, a distinguished surgeon, as well as a prolific author, the exception proves the rule. Wyeth was born in 1845 in Alabama and educated at the Lagrange Military Academy in his home state. He went on to serve as a private in the 4th Alabama Cavalry and took part in several skirmishes and battles, some of them as part of General Nathan Bedford Forrest’s command.

    The Forrest book!

    This book is well written and uses writtings from several of Forrest's men. This book has become the definitive souce for anyone researching Bedford Forrest. The only shortcomings are that this book was written some time ago and there is newer information that is not included. Check the bibliography of any book on this man and this book will be listed there.

    Great book about an astounding military leader

    It's unfortunate that history has been so unkind to NBF. His loose ties to the KKK in its early days have overshadowed his true military genius. Read this book to find out about the man, and then make a judgement. Can't wait to read some newer books with more recently discovered information!
