Nathan Bedford Forrest statue

A statue of an early Ku Klux Klan leader and Confederate commander that had long enraged motorists along Tennessee’s Interstate 65 (i-65) was removed Tuesday morning from a private property where it had sat for decades.

The man, Bill Dorris, left the property to the Battle of Nashville Trust, and the group had the statue removed.

Dorris is said to have placed the statue alongside the highway to showcase the “area’s history,” WSMV reported.
