Nathan Bedford Forrest article

Chuck, I recently composed a rebuttal to an article by Leonard Pitts in which he attacks Mississippi for proposing a license plate honoring General Forrest. I felt compelled to respond because Pitts uses questionable data in his attempt to denigrate Forrest. My article was not accepted on the usual sites I submit to – I guess a defense of a Confederate is not deemed a subject that will generate widespread readership.
 
The article appears on The Fire Eater as "History Contra Pitts" – I wish it could get more exposure because I haven’t seen any serious rebuttals to Pitts’ version. You might consider putting it on your site.
