Forrest Statue Is about Domination, not History

It was Memorial Day, and I decided to see if any history would rub off on me if I visited the Nathan Bedford Forrest monument in Memphis, Tennessee.  After all, that's the rationale Mississippi legislators and others give for keeping the 22-foot tall bronze idol to the rebel general, slave trader and first Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.  

We posted this in Daily Kos, and here's the link.
