The park was named for Lt. Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest, the intrepid Confederate cavalry leader who on November 4, 1864, attacked and destroyed the Federal supply and munitions depot at Johnsonville at the mouth of Trace Creek. His operations were concentrated along the river, near the park and town of Eva. The park features a monument to Forrest and a map delineating the action at Johnsonville.
