Item Description...
The first book chronicling the forces who served the legendary figure. Nathan Bedford Forrest has been an inspiration for biography and fiction for over a century, and those who rode with him have taken on the same mythic persona as Forrest. In this close look at his staff, author Michael Bradley proposes that Forrest's stature and the stature of his men were not mutually exclusive; rather one helped shape the other. The book offers new perspectives on the fact and fiction surrounding Forrest and his men and includes the previously unpublished minutes of the association formed in 1877 to keep alive memories of when they "rode with Forrest."

Fantastic history of the GREATEST Cavalry Leader's staff!  Jun 30, 2008
There is simply not enough information out there about General Forrest's staff. This book corrects some of that. My ancestor Captain John Watson Morton Jr. has been recently, since this books publishing that is, honored as his Battery has two obelisks erected: One at Brice's Crossroads in 2003 for his brilliant use of artillery. He broke the yankees and sent them reeling and ADVANCED his guns ala a tank attack in 1864. This threw the yankees into a rout. This had never been done with horse artillery before and was a precursor to the tank attack of the first world war. Also at Parker's Crossroads Tennessee 1862 his Battery was instrumental in containing and forcing the surrender of a yankee force and he was personally mentioned in the General's dispatches for his bravery. The second obelisk was raised and dedicated there in June 2008. This is a matter of historical record. Unique for a small slight man such as himself to have accomplished. In any event I wish to applaud the author of this book as he does detail something about Johnny as well as the rest of the GREAT man's staff. General Forrest himself was and remains THE natural genius of warfare, and he is beloved in the south by true patriots. His men were only a reflection of his best.
Review of "General N. B. Forrest's Escort Staff"  Oct 3, 2007
This book is a "must" for all Civil War buffs and especially those with an interest in the most interesting civil war character , General Nathan Bedford Forrest !

This book give details of Forrest's special escort & staff , that has never been know until this book . These we truely unique & talented men who served a unique & talented Confederate general . It enables an interested person to understand how Forrest "knew so well what his oponents were going to do" from superior intelligence provided by his special escort .

We see how Forrest used his escort as "shock troops" , that could respond in seconds to changing conditions , that Forrest saw developing ! They were the "best of the best" , hand selected by Forrest and utilized to their utmost !

The background of these men & their lives after the "lost cause" is most fascinating !

The point brought up , in this well written book , is "did Forrest make these men outstanding or was it a mutual uplifting ?" I think Forrest "infected" these brave & talented men with "heroic quilities" , but they enabled Forrest to "succeed in emplementing his genius at deciding the exact moment in a back & forth battle , when a lightening-like strike to a point of weakness could change the entire course of the battle to one of victory for your side !" Forrest had this genius in deciding the moment to strike , but it took his unique escort & staff to be "Forrest's lightening bolts" !!

A most interseting book and highly recommended !
Lacking  Jul 28, 2007
Other than providing readers with mini-biographies of different members of Forrest's escort and staff this book brings nothing new to the study of Forrest. The book is relatively dry and does not flow well. A glance at the bibliography reveals the fact that the book is poorly researched and documented.
Forrest's Escort and Staff  Dec 25, 2006
I just read the book and I must say I couldn't put it down till I finished. There were so many little things from 1st hand accounts of Forrest that I haven't found in other places. I have read all the books on Forrest and wanted more details, this book gave me several. There were also some first hand accounts and quotes in here that make me know Forrest was not the racist some try to make him out to be. Many accounts clarified his personality. The more I read of him, the more respect I have for him. There could never be a more accurate statement than Forrest led by example,(for friend or foe). That point made clear in a never before tidbit about him. The 6th US Tennessee had a reputation as looters and rapist. When Forrest and his men entered Purdy, Tennesse, the hometown of Col Fielding Hurst, commander of the US 6th, he sent one of his men to Col's home to tell his wife he was posting a guard from his own escort around her house so that she wouldn't be harmed. Knowing what her husband's men had done to other women less fortunate, the woman broke down in tears. It was the "do unto others as you would want them to do unto you", No doubt when Hurst came home and saw how well Forrest treated his wife, the shame of his own actions must have humiliated him.
As for the Escort, they were as incredible as Forrest. This book is a must for anyone who wants more info on Forrest.
Just about the time you think you've seen it all on Forrest, including the old rehashed yet another way, Michael Bradley comes along with some great new source material. My hat is off to him. The book is well written with nice overviews of material that many of the readers may already be somewhat familiar with, but it necessary and complimentary to the subject of Forrest's escort and staff, and the addition of his new material. The appendixes with the rosters are worth the cost of the book alone. Two others were an unexpected surprise that I enjoyed, "Forrest in Literature" and "Forrest and Race", both of which were exceptionally apt at putting both into their proper perspective, something I don't think I've ever seen done so well, concisely, or in one place before. While a few photographs are included in the text, I would like to have seen more, and perhaps they will be added in future editions. Maybe it is just a personal thing, as I like to browse and read sometimes. There are some interesting images out there on the escort and staff, as well as badges only issued to them after the war. Anyway, I'd latch onto a copy, as I don't think you will be disappointed, and the author has managed to find a new niche not previously explored.
