Lieutenant General Nathan Bedford Forrest
Sculpted by: Jane Baxendale
On November 5, 1978, a heroic sized bust of Lieutenant General
Nathan Bedford Forrest was placed in the Tennessee State Capitol
by Camp 28.
This bust was largely paid for by funds raised from the sale
of a print of General Forrest commissioned by the camp. Camp
28 commissioned Artist Joy Garner to paint the famous General.
The bust, sculpted by Jane Baxendale, wife of the late Albert
Baxendale, a former member of Camp 28, is one of the most
popular sites in the Capitol.
