Remains Of Confederate General Exhumed For Relocation To Middle Tennessee

The group responsible for relocating the monument of Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest say the remains of Forrest and his wife are gone from a Memphis park.

They’ll be reinterred at the National Confederate Museum in Columbia.

WKNO-FM in Memphis reports that officials there are saying that moving the gravesite of the slave trader and early leader of the Ku Klux Klan means the park “can just be a park.” The removal comes ahead of planned festivities marking Juneteenth, a commemoration of the end of slavery in the United States.
