On the Fact that (According to Historians, Lochlainn Seabrook and Robert Selph Henry) In 1868, Former Union General, Frank P. Blair, Once Characterized Former Confederate General, Nathan Bedford Forrest, as an Individual Who He Regarded "More Highly than Any Man I Have Ever Met"

Yeah, try garnering this fact from any mainstream history book (most of which have tried to tarnish Forrest as a scoundrel and a racist of which he was neither as even a quick perusal of the record displays; the fact that the man freed his servants well before the war, the fact that most of his servants followed him to Tennessee to work for him there, the fact that a South-hating U.S. committee cleared him of any wrong-doing in regards to the Reconstruction KKK, etc.). I seriously doubt that you'll find it.
