<quoted text>That's not entirely true. There are lots of Civil War buff who find NBF fascinating. I've known people at the library and the museum and they get calls all the time wanting informnation about him. They seem to be surprised that he's not buried here.
The average person walking down the street these days doesn't even know who the hell he was.

He is a very respected general and buffs would flock here to see "Ole Forrest" grave. It's hard for some to understand "Southern Heritage". Those people travel have money and spend money. They won't cause problems and just respect all aspects of the war. A lot more of these people will come cause red neck crackers don't vacation. He was the only general to give the order "divide and conquer" and pull it off. It was a double envelope taught in West Point everyday but all people want to do is talk about his limited involvement in a racist organization that he removed himself from when it became violent.
