May 31, 1901

With appropriate ceremonies, the corner stone of Forrest Monument was laid yesterday by Mrs. Mary Forrest Bradley, the granddaughter of Gen. N.B. Forrest. The site of the statue is Forrest Park and the first step toward the given end has been successfully accomplished.

General Forrest will stand with his face to the south. He will be mounted upon a superb charger.
