Nathan Forrest Day
Gov. Bill Lee proclaimed Saturday as Nathan Bedford Forrest Day in Tennessee, to honor the former Confederate general and early Ku Klux Klan leader whose bust is on display in the state Capitol. Under current state law, the Tennessee governor is to issue proclamations including the July 13 Forrest Day. "I signed the bill because the law requires that I do that and I havenít looked at changing that law," Lee said. He did not answer when asked whether he believes state law should be changed to no longer require the governor to issue such proclamations or whether he had reservations about doing so. "I havenít even looked at that law, other than knowing I needed to comply with it, so thatís what I did," Lee said.
