Comments and Notes
STORY: Battle (victory|defeat) -- Rome, GA. Forrest defeats Colonel A.D. Streight\'s raiders and helps save Rome.
DESIGN: John Walz was a Savannah, GA, sculptor.
SITE MAINTENANCE: Local government -- City of Rome, Cemetery Department, its Myrtle Hill Cemetery unit.
DEVELOPMENT DATES: Originally installed at Second Av and Broad St, Rome, GA, the city\'s \"Cotton Block.\" Relocated due to traffic concerns to Myrtle Hill Cemetery 12/30/1952 (SIRIS).
SPONSOR: DAR/SAR and DAR/SAR-like groups -- United Daughters of the Confederacy, N.B. Forrest Chapter.
COMMENT 1: Under a by-line from Memphis dated Aug. 4, 2005, a reporter for a national daily writes as follows: \"A clamor always seems to accompany any mention here of Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest, the cavalryman whose outnumbered men whipped the Yankees at Brice\'s Crossroads in Northern Mississippi. He was not just any Confederate hero. After the war, he returned to Memphis and, in 1867, became the first grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.\"
COMMENT 2: Writing about Forrest\'s successful efforts in Georgia, a website author comments as follows: \"After the Civil War, Forrest lent his name to a group of enforcers of the Democratic Party known as the Ku Klux Klan. Disenchanted with the activities of the group he ordered it to disband in 1869, which did not happen. The Klan and Forrest went separate ways but the stigma of his days as slave trader, the Fort Pillow incident and his brief association with the Klan would forever raise questions about one of America\'s greatest tactical minds.\"
