Faison wants bust of segregationist removed
Tennessee House Republican Caucus Chair Jeremy Faison (R-Cosby)says he supports removing the bust of Confederate war general Nathan Bedford Forrest from the state capitol building. The controversial bust has been at the site since the late 1970s. Rep. Faison is one of the few Tennessee Republicans to address the issue of the bust of Forrest that sits in an alcove between the second floor House and Senate chambers. I think you are going to see a move to move him to a museum and then honor some people who deserve to be honored, said Faison. Confederate General Forrest was a slave trader before the Civil War, and an early leader of the Ku Klux Klan. By law, any change in the location of the Forrest bust would have to be approved by the Tennessee Capitol Commission before going to the Tennessee Historical Commission.
