MessageSir:
I recently obtained a book titled "Notes of a Private" by John Milton Hubbard, published in 1909. He was a member of the 7th Tennessee Regiment, Forrest's Cavalry Corps. In his book he describes an incident at Oxford, MI during December 1862 when the 7th Regiment was forced from the town of Oxford, MI by Union forces. As the regiment fled the town Taylor Cook, who was apparently standing on the verandah of a cottage south of the courthouse railed at the fleeing troops that they were cowards for leaving and handing the town over to the federals. This was before she had married William M Forrest, Nathan Bedford Forrest's son. As recorded in the book she was the only woman who had spirit enough to try and chastise the troops to keep them from fleeing where the other woman appeared to all be weeping in fear. As someone who has read a bit about Forrest I was taken by the idea that this 15 year old girl had the temerity to do what she did, and it seems appropriate that she married into the Forrest family. I would like to know if you have any more information on her.

Thanks
