Mary Ann
Nathan Bedford Forrest and Mary Ann Montgomery - Hernando, Ms, August 1845.
On an Ausust Sunday, Forrest met the daughter of a Presbyterian minister and her mother while they were on their way to church.  The Montgomery' buggy had broken down while crossing a stream.  A couple of local boys were on the river bank laughing and teasing Mary Ann and her mother.  Immediately he waded across the stream and carried Mary Ann to safety and then rescued her mother.  Deciding that the boisterous jokesters needed to be taught a lesson, when he then proceeded to due in that unique Forrest manner.
