Younglobo,

You did a lot of reaearch in your answer....well done!

Additionally, Forrest did take black troops as prisoners from Ft. Pillow. All prisoners from Ft. Pillow, both black and white, were sent to Andersonville.

Again for anyone interested, I HIGHLY recomend the book "River Run Red". It doesn't convince me whether or not there was what could be considered a "massacre", but it is probably the most comprehensive book I ever read about the battle of Ft. Pillow. It is very well researched and tells the story before, during and after the battle. A very good read....I was sorry the book ended and there weren't more to read!!
