Curious if anyone had a listing of Nathan Bedford Forrest's commands? I am looking to see if any of ancestors rode with him. There also appears to be no lineage association for General Forrest - is there something equivalent to Morgan's Men Association?

Thanks!

Welcome From THE Heart Of Dixie. There is a lot of info on Gen NBF's commands. He would raise troops then have them taken away. If you could tell us who they were we can sure try and find out.

Many troopers claimed to have rode with Forrest, after the war there was a Major group of Forrest veterans and the had their own organization and you had to prove you were with his command in order to join.
