Dragoon Visits Memphis' Forrest Park

Prattville Dragoon Danny Smyth took a trip to Memphis, Tennessee to see the famous General Nathan Bedford Forrest statue. Here are a couple of pictures of this impressive statue.  Forrest was moved to this site in 1905 and is buried under the statue.  Nathan Bedford Forrest was born in Tennessee and had business ventures there and specifically in Memphis before and after the War for Southern Independence including President of the Selma (AL) based Marion and Memphis Railroad.
