The Tennessee governor faces ever more rigorous control over the state law that celebrates a day of honor of Forrest.
Lee last week signed a proclamation for July 13 to be seen as "Nathan Bedford's Day Forrest". The proclamation is in accordance with the pre-signed state law, according to Fox 17 Nashville.

Lee has already said he does not support the removal of Forrest's bust from the state capital of Tennessee, because I do not want to "blur the story," the Washington Post notes.
