General Nathan Bedford Forrest was a brave and ingenious Confederate officer who won all but one of the battles he led; a philanthropist who gave generously to family, friends, and charities; and a humanitarian who not only spared the lives of numerous Yankees on the battlefield, but who freed his slaves years before Lincoln reluctantly issued his fake and illegal Emancipation Proclamation. And unlike our liberal sixteenth president, Abraham Lincoln, who purposefully delayed abolition, hindered black social and political advancement, and campaigned throughout his life to have all blacks deported out of the U.S., after the War conservative Forrest crusaded to bring new African immigrants into the South—with full civil rights.

No one would know any of this by reading the typical works on Forrest, however, nearly all which are written and published by enemies of the South. In fact, according to most Northern and New South authors Forrest was a violent redneck, an unregenerate racist, a barbaric slave trader, a philandering husband, an illiterate hillbilly, the founder and grand wizard of the KKK, and “the butcher of Fort Pillow.” None of this is true, but it continues to be presented in our history books as fact.

In A Rebel Born: A Defense of Nathan Bedford Forrest - winner of the prestigious Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal - unreconstructed Southern historian, Tennessee author, and Forrest scholar Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook reveals the truth about one of history’s most fascinating, charismatic, complex, romantic, and unique individuals. In this refreshingly positive appraisal of Forrest, widely acclaimed as Seabrook’s “masterpiece,” the author corrects the many falsehoods about him, and, using well researched documentation, shows that the modern negative image of the General derives solely from slanderous myths created 150 years ago by Lincoln's anti-South propaganda machine.

The longest book ever written on Ol’ Bedford and called “the definitive Forrest biography” by Confederate Veteran magazine, this newly revised Civil War Sesquicentennial edition includes his life story, over 2,000 footnotes, hundreds of rare photos and illustrations (many never before seen by the public), a list of Forrest's military engagements, a Forrest life calendar, Forrest and Montgomery family trees, an 800-book bibliography, a detailed index, and more. Learn the facts about Forrest, facts that have been wantonly suppressed by anti-South proponents. Available in paperback and hardcover. The Foreword is by Dr. Clyde N. Wilson, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of History, University of South Carolina, and author of Defending Dixie: Essays in Southern History and Culture.

Civil War scholar Lochlainn Seabrook, a descendant of the families of Alexander H. Stephens and John S. Mosby, is the most prolific and popular pro-South writer in the world today. Known as the "new Shelby Foote," he is a recipient of the prestigious Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal and the author of over 50 books that have introduced hundreds of thousands to the truth about the War for Southern Independence. A seventh-generation Kentuckian of Appalachian heritage and the sixth great-grandson of the Earl of Oxford, Colonel Seabrook has a forty-year background in American and Southern history, and is the author of the international blockbuster Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner! His screenplay of “A Rebel Born” is being turned into a full length feature film.

Review:

"Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook's book 'A Rebel Born' is the definitive Nathan Bedford Forrest biography." - CONFEDERATE VETERAN "I wanted to tell you how much I am enjoying your well researched book 'A Rebel Born.' You did General Forrest a great service." - JAMES RONALD KENNEDY, author of 'The South Was Right!' "Forrest was a great American, and American history cannot be understood without this man in his proper place. That is why Colonel Seabrook's accounting of the truth of Forrest in 'A Rebel Born' is so welcome and has appeared with such perfect timing." - DR. CLYDE N. WILSON, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of History, University of South Carolina "This is the very best book about General Forrest that I have ever read. General Forrest has always been one of my heroes and I've read every book that I can find about the general. This is definitely a book that you need to have in your Confederate library. I've given it our highest possible rating!" - ED PORTER, Lone Star Book Review "'A Rebel Born' is the best book I've ever read, period!" - LYNN HARRELL, SCV "I feel that not only is 'A Rebel Born' an outstanding history of General Forrest, but it is extremely valuable as a reference book to refute the Yankee lies and propaganda, not only about Forrest, but about the entire South. I strongly believe that this book should be read and studied as required reading for every Southerner who wishes to defend his homeland and his culture. 'A Rebel Born' has become one of my 'yellow books' since so much of it has been underlined with a yellow felt tipped marker!" - GENE ANDREWS, Forrest Boyhood Home Committee, Nashville, Tennessee "I love your book 'A Rebel Born.' Of all the 13 books I have on Gen. Forrest, it's my favorite. In fact, it's the best book on Forrest I have ever read." - CAROL TAYLOR DAVIS "I read 'A Rebel Born'! The best book on Bedford that I have ever read and I thought that I had read them all! Do yourself a real favor and read it . . . its super factual and very entertaining! I enjoyed it so much I read it twice!" - DANA HORTON MAKEPEACE "Best. Book. Ever." - PATRICK SEAY "'A Rebel Born' should be in every Confederate library. Well-researched and footnoted facts to counter the lies of 'those people.' Get your copy today!" - SOUTHERN HISTORICAL SOCIETY "I highly recommend 'A Rebel Born'!!! Hands-down the best book I have ever read on General Forrest. Well researched and heavily foot-noted. I love Sea Raven Press!!! Colonel Seabrook rocks! Thank God, common sense defense and debunking of liberal lies. Plus, Colonel Seabrook is kin to Lt. General N.B. Forrest." - LANI BURNETTE RINKEL, cofounder of the Mid-South Flaggers, Mississippi "'A Rebel Born' is a fine fine book. Scholarship and integrity absolutely flows from every word." - MARK WAYNE CUNNINGHAM "If you haven't read Colonel Seabrook's book 'A Rebel Born,' you need to. It's the best I've ever read on Forrest." - LARRY BASS
