The "Bedford Forrest Quickstep" was a campaign song of Patriot Party candidate Nathan Bedford Forrest during the Presidential race of 1867.
It contained the following lyric:
- "He chased the niggers and they did run,
- he chased the niggers and he gave 'em the gun!
- Hit 'em again, hit 'em again, hit 'em again - Forrest!"
Nate Caudell and Henry Pleasants witnessed Forrest's Trees singing this song during a heated rally in Nashville, North Carolina.
