Hurricane Creek runs northwest from just north of Oxford to the Tallahatchie River.
Lee M. Bolen, Professor Emeritus of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Mississippi, and great-grandson of Nathan Bedford Forrest: “McClure’s book provides a thorough and well-organized presentation of the specific commanders involved in a small series of battles that occurred during the early portion of the Civil War. The movements and tactics of General Nathan Bedford Forrest described in these battles give the reader insight into his unique battle tactics from which he gained his reputation.”
