Nathan Bedford Forrest III


One of the great things about the Web is that I usually learn something new every day. Like this: that the great grandson (the only son of the only son of the only son) of the famous Confederate cavalry general was a B-17 pilot in World War II, who perished after being shot down in 1943. Since he had no children, the line came to an end in the flak-riddled skies over Nazi Germany. Amazing.
