STANDING PROUD

Released May 1978

This montage is a tribute to the Confederate soldiers, the unknown and unsung heroes of the Civil War.  The old Lee & Gordon Mill, which still stands today, was used to hold prisoners for a short time in the Battle of Chickamauga.  General Nathan Bedford Forrest, "The American Murat" and "King of the Mounted Raiders," is the central figure of the montage.  He joined the Confederate Army as a private, but his courage, leadership and shrewd military tactics led to his quick promotion to Lieutenant-General.  Affectionately known as "Ole Nate," he returned to his plantation upon retiring from the army in 1865.  He died in 1877 and his body now lies in Memphis, Tennessee, in a park named in his memory.
