From my book; “Get Forrest” page 57, and his final days. This Lithograph digitally created Artwork is sold as a Print; Forrest’s Realization; Size 18” x 23.5”.
At the end of the Civil War Forrest attends church, which one of his formal adversaries became a preacher, and his words about black and white touch Forrest’s heart.
Forrest’s life reminds me as Artist and Writer of this story of another slave-trader turned Christian by the name of John Newton, who wrote a hymn you might have heard of: “Amazing Grace! How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me! I once was lost, but now am found; was blind, but now I see.”
