Born July 13th, 1821.
Nathan Bedford Forrest is the oldest of two brothers and two sisters. A proud southern man, Nathan helped his father work the family cotton plantations, learning how to run the multiple handlers and being groomed to take over as heir of the Forrest Plantations.
After seventeen years of learning the plantation trade, his mother and father caught and were killed by Typhoid, leaving him as head of the Forrest House. Quickly situating himself as the leader of the family, he expanded the fields to garner more money.
Marrying the love of his life in March of 1840, a year after she birthed one son, Jack. Soon after that, he began participating in the slave trade, selling and buying to solidify his financial status.
When the Civil War began, Nathan joined with his eldest brother Jonathan, and his son, Jack. When he saw the poor state of the regiment he was stationed in, he offered to buy them equipment, to better their chances in the battlefield. Surprised a man of his status would join as a lowly private, he received a commission as Lieutenant Colonel, and was given command of a cavalry corps.
He participated in multiple raids into Union aligned towns along the Mason-Dixie line, slaughtering garrisons, and capturing vital supplies of gunpowder and shot. When General Robert E Lee surrendered the Confederacy, he and his troops were upset about it.
After the Union took ownership of his plantations, he and his Escort Company of 40 men followed him West through Texas, into the region of New Mexico and Arizona. Now, he works as a mercenary, still wearing and caring for his uniform while he was in the Confederate Cavalry.
