AAA Editor Notes
Emma Sansom Monument, 90 Broad St. at jct. First St., is a memorial to the 15-year-old Alabama girl who guided Confederate Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest as he pursued 2,000 Federal troops. The statue depicts Emma pointing to a shortcut across Black Creek, which enabled Forrest to capture the Union forces. The night of his victory Forrest sent his “highest regards to Emma Sansom for her gallant conduct” and asked for a lock of her hair as a keepsake.
