Nathan Bedford Forrest: Memphis to remove grave of Confederate general, Klansman

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — The Memphis City Council has begun the process that could result in the removal of the body and a statue of Nathan Bedford Forrest — rebel general, slave trader and early Ku Klux Klan member — from a park.

Multiple media outlets report that the City Council unanimously approved a resolution on Tuesday calling for the graves of Forrest and his wife to be removed from Health Sciences Park. An ordinance to remove the park's statue of Forrest received the first of three readings.

The resolution about the graves requires approval from Chancery Court and Forrest's descendants, while the ordinance regarding the statue also needs approval from the Tennessee Historical Commission.

Council chairman Myron Lowery and Mayor A C Wharton have backed both agenda items. The Sons of Confederate Veterans opposes the removals.

House Democrats referenced the wrong Confederate flag Thursday during a debate over the controversial symbol.

A photo from floor debates shows a Confederate flag with 17 stars, according to a post on CSPAN’s Instagram account.

Reps. James Clyburn (S.C.), Al Green (Texas), Keith Ellison (Minn.), David Cicilline (R.I.), Eric Swalwell (Calif.), Hakeem Jeffries (N.Y.), Sheila Jackson Lee (Texas) and Terri Sewell (Ala.) all missed the apparent mistake.

Confederate flag supporters flock to the 'Florida Southern Pride Ride' in Ocala

Thousands of Confederate flag supporters rallied in central Florida on Sunday afternoon.

The blue-and-red-clad drivers of some 2,000 trucks, motorcycles and other vehicles flocked to the town of Ocala for a 17-mile parade in support of county officials’ decision to return the stars and bars to a site outside a Marion County government complex, The Ocala Star-Banner reported.

Someone reportedly fired at least six gunshots in the direction of the so-called “Florida Southern Pride Ride,” but no one was injured, according to WFTV. Police tweaked the parade route after receiving word of threats against the demonstrators in one of the town’s neighborhoods, the Star-Banner reported.

Attendees were wearing t-shirts with slogans like “Heritage not hate” as they defended the rebel symbol.

“This is my flag,” Bryan Williams told WFTV. “It just means this is the South flag. Nothing against anybody. That’s just what I was raised under. I carry it with me all the time.”

A General Lee reproduction car modeled on the one from “The Dukes of Hazzard” led the ride, and most of the demonstrators were white, according to the local paper.
