Overview

The first book chronicling the forces who served the legendary figure. Nathan Bedford Forrest has been an inspiration for biography and fiction for over a century, and those who rode with him have taken on the same mythic persona as Forrest. In this close look at his staff, author Michael Bradley proposes that Forrest�s stature and the stature of his men were not mutually exclusive; rather one helped shape the other. The book offers new perspectives on the fact and fiction surrounding Forrest and his men and includes the previously unpublished minutes of the association formed in 1877 to keep alive memories of when they �rode with Forrest.�
