In a news conference Friday, Van Turner with Memphis Greenspace said the remains of Forrest and his wife have been safely removed.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. ó The remains of confederate general and early KKK leader Nathan Bedford Forrest and his wife have been removed from Health Sciences Park in Memphis.

Snip

Lee Millar with Sons of Confederate Veterans thanks Turner for the settlement and this final compromise. He read statement from Forrest descendants, which said they are pleased that the remains are now at an undisclosed location.

Wtf would want to identify with Sons of Confederate Veterans? 😳

Note: Juneteenth celebration to be held at site of former grave.

7. Buried at an undisclosed location?

Gee, I was hoping for a major pissing match over where to re-inter the remains.
