 Memphis City Council: Nathan Forrest's Family Does Not Want Remains Exhumed Or Statue Removed, Mayor Claims Otherwise
"................another knee jerk reaction to that anti-Confederate hysteria. Some people here are trying to get on the bandwagon in erasing Confederate history..."

Yesterday, the Inquisitr reported on the Memphis City Council wanting to remove the remains and statue of a Confederate lieutenant general, Nathan Forrest. Today, more information on the story is available. The Memphis City Council has voted unanimously to exhume the remains of Nathan Forrest and his wife, which have been interred underneath that statue memorializing Nathan Forrest, a statue that has stood since 1904. In order to complete the exhumation, the Memphis City Council needs a court order and permission from Nathan Forrest’s family.

A spokesperson for the Sons of Confederate Veterans, Lee Miller, speaking on behalf of people claiming to be descendants of Nathan Forrest, claims the family is not going to give their consent to remove the remains.

  1. Only when these same people agree to exhume MLK's body from Atlanta. First.

  2. This gets better by the second.
    The FBI is now claiming that Dylann Roof
    illegally purchased the gun he used to
    commit the murders on June 17th, as a
    result of "problems" with the standard
    background check system.
    There you have it sports fans.

    1. What ever happened to the published statement that it was a agent's gun?

  3. That was Ms. Steinle in San Francisco where this scum stated he found the
    agent's gun though the gun had been stolen out of the agent's vehicle.

    1. Thanks for straightening me out! :) At any rate, I believe this is all just a waste of time, since you're supposed to able to buy a gun for $100 in any major city. Thanks.

  7. The agents gun has to do with the illegal alien in San Francisco.
    Roof started out it was his father gave it to him. Now the NICS system failed.
    Now with the Nathan Forrest issue "Enemy's at the Gate" comes to mind. I won't go any further.
