Nathan Bedford Forrest II was the grandson of Confederate Lieutenant General Nathan Bedford Forrest (through his son William Montgomery Forrest), a pioneering leader of the Ku Klux Klan, and father of Brigadier General Nathan Bedford Forrest III.
Forrest served as Secretary and Business Manager at Lanier University, a college that was sold to the Klan in 1921. Forrest announced that the institution would teach "100% pure Americanism", and that the curriculum would include two mandatory courses for all students: one on the study of the US Constitution and another on Biblical literature.
