Bust Hell Wide Open
- The Life of Nathan Bedford Forrest
- By: Samuel W. Mitcham Jr.
- Narrated by: Dan John Miller
- Length: 10 hrs and 20 mins
The legacy of General Nathan Bedford Forrest is deeply divisive. Best known for being accused of war crimes at the Battle of Fort Pillow and for his role as first grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan - an organization he later denounced - Forrest has often been studied as a military figure, but never before studied as a fascinating individual who wrestled with the complex issues of his violent times. Bust Hell Wide Open is a comprehensive portrait of Nathan Bedford Forrest as a man: his achievements, failings, reflections, and regrets.
