Bust Hell Wide Open, The Life of Nathan Bedford Forrest by Samuel W. Mitcham Jr


Out of stock

SKU: 2361 Categories: , ,


An engaging, quite readable, illustrated history of Forrest. It is sympathetic to him and to the Southern cause in the War Between the States; Yankees generally do not like this book and can’t get over the fact that Forrest, arguably the greatest, most courageous, ingenious cavalry general ever, was named leader of the KKK during the Reconstruction period after the war. He joined the Confederacy as a private and finished his service as a Lieutenant General. No Christian himself, the former slave dealer said “Christianity is a fine region — for women.”
