BOOK DESCRIPTIONGeneral Nathan Bedford Forrest was a brave and ingenious Confederate officer who won all but one of the battles he led; a philanthropist who gave generously to family, friends, and charities; and a humanitarian who not only spared the lives of numerous Yankees on the battlefield, but who freed his slaves years before Lincoln issued his fake and illegal Emancipation Proclamation. And unlike liberal Lincoln, who purposefully delayed abolition, hindered black social and political advancement, and campaigned throughout his life to have all blacks deported out of the U.S., after the War conservative Forrest crusaded to bring new African immigrants into the South - with full civil rights.No one would know any of this by reading the typical works on Forrest, however, nearly all which are written and published by anti-South proponents. In fact, according to most Northern and New South authors Forrest was a violent redneck, an unregenerate racist, a barbaric slave trader, a philandering husband, an illiterate hillbilly, the founder and grand wizard of the KKK, and “the butcher of Fort Pillow.” None of this is true, but it continues to be presented in our history books as fact.In our bestseller A Rebel Born: A Defense of Nathan Bedford Forrest - Confederate General, American Legend, unreconstructed Southern historian, Forrest scholar, and award-winning author Lochlainn Seabrook reveals the truth about one of history’s most fascinating, charismatic, complex, romantic, and unique individuals. In this refreshingly positive appraisal of Forrest, widely acclaimed as Seabrook's "masterpiece," he corrects the many falsehoods about the General, and, using well researched documentation, shows that the modern negative image of him derives almost solely from slanderous myths created 150 years ago by Lincoln’s anti-South propaganda machine.The longest book ever written on Forrest, it includes his life story, over 2,000 footnotes, hundreds of photos and illustrations (many never before seen by the public), a list of Forrest’s military engagements, a Forrest life calendar, Forrest and Montgomery family trees, dozens of official field reports, an 800-book bibliography, a detailed index, and more. Learn the facts about Forrest, facts that have been wantonly suppressed by enemies of the South. Next time someone denigrates the General, recommend A Rebel Born!And get ready for the movie version!
