Lieutenant-General Nathan Bedford Forrest
At the beginning of the War, Forrest, a citizen of Memphis, organized a cavalry force which he led at Fort Donelson and Shiloh.  In July, 1862, he captured a union garrison at Murfreesboro.  In 1864, he commanded the cavalry under Hood in the Tennessee campaign.  Many consider Forrest the greatest Confederate cavalryman.

Leatherwood Hotel, Iuka, Mississippi - Photo probably early 1900's.  This stood on the ground next to the present day Iuka City Hall.  It was conveniently located hear the railroad station, and the business section. In 1899 the first Leatherwood Hotel building burned and it was replaced with this handsome new building with twenty elegantly furnished rooms.  Rates were $2.00 per day; $8.00 and $10.00 per week.  W.B. Leatherwood was the proprietor.  After the death of Mr. and Mrs. Leatherwood and its discontinued use as a hotel, the building was torn down in 1956.
