Forrest versus Lee
This chapter describes the battle of Tupelo from July 14 to 15, 1864, and Nathan Bedford Forrest’s contentious relationship with Stephen D. Lee, who led the Tupelo campaign. Lee’s comments on the battle suggest that he blamed the outcome, as well as some of the battlefield errors, largely on Forrest’s refusal to take command.
