In 1864, a force of more than 3,000 Confederate cavalrymen under General Nathan Forrest stormed Fort Pillow, overwhelming a garrison of some 350 Southern white Unionists and over 300 former slaves turned artillerymen. Hundreds of Federals were dead, and over 60 black soldiers had been captured and reenslved and over 100 of their white comrades were marched off to their doom at Andersonville. This battle remains one of the most controversial battles in American history.
