Nathan Bedford Forrest
I ended the war a horse ahead.
Get there first with the most.
Never stand and take a charge… charge them too.
No damn man kills me and lives.
I am not an enemy of the Negro. We want him here among us; he is the only laboring class we have.
War means fighting, and fighting means killing.
I’ve got no respect for any young man who won’t join the colors.
We have but one flag, one country; let us stand together. We may differ in color, but not in sentiment. Many things have been said about me which are wrong, and which white and black persons here, who stood by me through the war, can contradict.
