      CIVIL WAR SESQUICENTENNIAL

      MASSACRE AT FORT PILLOW, APRIL 12, 1864

      Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest captured the Union-held Fort Pillow in Tennessee.  The northern troops included African-American soldiers.  Following the surrender, the Confederates massacred the black Union troops. A Federal congressional investigating committee subsequently verified that more than 300 blacks, including women and children, had been slain after the fort surrendered. After the incident, black soldiers going into battle used the cry “Remember Fort Pillow!”
      Following the war, General Forrest became the first Grand Wizard of the newly formed Ku Klux Klan.
