Don Gordon of Columbia, South Carolina, was guest speaker at the February meeting of the Sixteenth Regiment, SCV in Greenville. He discussed General Nathan Bedford Forrest, renowned cavalry leader, considered by many to be the finest produced by the Confederacy. At the conclusion of his presentation, Mr. Gordon quoted from memory a lengthy segment of the final speech Forrest gave to his troops  3-days before the final surrender. The presentation drew an enthusiastic standing ovation from the packed banquet room at the Phoenix Inn.
