Click on an image to enlarge
It isn't often that you get a chance to own a piece that was owned and carried by the most famous and controversial figures of the Civil War, Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest. N.B. Forrest rose from the rank of a private to a Major General, the only man during the Civil War to do so. General Sherman once said, "If it takes 10,000 men and breaks the U.S. treasury gets that devil Forrest!" After the Civil War, Forrest became the President of the Selma, Memphis and Marion Railroad. During this time he was given passes from the other railroads. These would allow Forrest to travel free of charge on any of the lines. This one was given by the Atlanta and Gulf Railroad of Georgia. It is a pre-printed card that measures 4 inches by 2-3/8th inches in overall size. It has the black ink with the 1874 date in the center. In beautiful brown ink it has "Genl. N B Forrest Presd't." and is signed by the General Superintendent of the line and is dated from 1874. It is accompanied by a modern Xerox image of the General in His Confederate uniform. Most people have never had the opportunity to own a piece that was owned and carried by a Confederate Icon. This is your chance! THIS ITEM IS ONE OF SIX THAT WE GOT OUT OF THE COLLECTIONS THAT CAME FROM THE FORREST ESTATE. IT IS LIKE ONE THAT I FEATURED ON OUR SHILOHRELICS YOUTUBE CHANNEL. HERE IS A LINK SO YOU CAN SEE WHY WE THOUGHT IT WAS NEAT ENOUGH FOR A VIDEO: FORREST PASS
