King Philip in The Guns of the SouthEdit

King Philip was a favorite horse of Cavalry General Nathan Bedford Forrest during the Second American Revolution. As late as 1867, King Philip could still carry Forrest. After his loss in that year's November election, Forrest rode King Philip in to Arlington House to congratulate the winner, Robert E. Lee.[1]
