Gen. Forrest Dies

October 30, 1877

A GREAT MAN HAS FALLEN

A perturbed spirit has at last found rest. General Nathan Bedford Forrest, he, who was a pillar of strength to the southern people, in their struggle for independence, whose life was as stormy as the tempestuous sea, and whose valor, patriotism and brilliant achievements have made his name and fame imperishable, has ceased to be a dweller of the earth.
