NATHAN BEDFORD FORREST BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION will be held on SATURDAY, JULY 28, 2012 THIS YEAR...due to the National SCV Reunion being held in Murfreesboro TN during the week of our usual celebration...the second Saturday in July. Please mark your calendar and be here for the 13th Annual Birthday Celebration of Ole Bedford!
We have a very exciting party planned for you this year...with a GREAT ChristianSouthern American menu of wonderful LIVE Southern Music...featuring the Tallassee Armory Guards Camp 1921 Band...our keynote speaker is Lt. Col. Tom McKinney author of Jack Hinson's One Man War.
Bobby "Marse Robert" Holloway will be back with us as Master Chef cooking his delicious Southern Fried Catfish & all the fixin's...Bobby is a walkin' miracle with his battle against cancer & we give God the Glory in answering our prayers....we will also be serving ice cold watermelon all day long at the "Pickaninny Freeze Watermelon Stand"....we will be having door prizes and also will have a few nice Southern things in the auction....
Todd Kiscaden will be back with his beautiful cannon firing salutes to the General all day long...and also you will be educated by his "Wall of Education" which is more history than you would receive in four years of the college classroom these days!
We will be drawing for the solid bronze NBF mini bust - an exact replica of the life-size bronze bust THAT USED TO BE ON THE GRANITE MONUMENT IN LIVE OAK CEMETERY UNTIL HE WAS KIDNAPPED SOMETIME BETWEEN DUSK 10 MARCH & DAWN 12 MARCH 2012. If you would like tickets to get in the drawing reply back to me & I will send them electronically & you can print as many off as you would like...they are $2 each...make checks payable to NBF Monument Fund and mail to me at the address below. Now we are raising funds to replace the General and to secure him at Confederate Circle at Live Oak Cemetery. This year's celebration will have an even more intense meaning in our commitment to our life of Liberty and Freedom...perpetuating the cause of NATHAN BEDFORD FORREST & ALL our Confederate ancestors to get our Constitution back and to maintain it!
