Abstract:

In April 1864, the Union garrison at Fort Pillow was composed of almost 600 troops, about half of them black. The Confederancy, incensed by what it saw as a crime against nature, sent its fiercest calvary commander, Nathan Bedford Forrest, to attack the fort with about 1,500 men. The Confederates overran the fort and drove the Federals into a deadly crossfire. Only 62 of the coloured Union troops survived the fight unwounded. Many accused the Confederates of massacring the black troops after the fort fell, when fighting should have ceased. the "Fort Pillow Massacre" became a Union rallying cry and cemented resolve to see the war through to its conclusion - container.
