History of July the 13th

I found came across these on two separate history entries:

1821        Jul 13, Confederate cavalry commander Nathan Bedford Forrest was born in Tennessee's Bedford County.

1862        Jul 13, Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest defeated a Union army at Murfreesboro, Tennessee. 

Because of the above two I learned two things about General Nathan Bedford Forrest: 

First.  He is partially named after the Tennessee county he was born in.   

Second.  As a Confederate General  he had a major victory on his birthday.  

What a birthday present!
