From "Tennesseans in the Civil War - A Military History of Confederate and Union
Units with Rosters of Personnel (Part 1) (pages 16-17): "Forrests's Escort:
This company was recruited at the instance of Nathan Bedford Forrest shortly
subsequent to his promotion to Brigadier General, by Captain Montgomery Little,
a native of Bedford County who had been before the war, a planter and business
man in Memphis. It was made up mainly of men from Bedford County, a part of
which is now Moore County, who were assembeled in Shelbyville in September and
moved from there to Murfreesboro just before the town was temporarily occupied
by a Federal raiding force. After taking part in the demonstration against
Nashville on November 6, they moved with Forrest to his West Tennessee Raid and
from there to the frequent fighting around Spring Hill, Thompson's Station where
Little was killed".
