Shame On Memphis!

From Feb. 5, 2013, Yahoo! News Memphis Renames 3 Parks That Honored Confederates.

I'd heard there was some consideration about it, but didn't think it would happen like this.  History was thrown out the window.

Three parks were renamed in what appears to be a rammed-through manner:  Confederate Park is now Memphis Park, Jefferson Davis Park is now Mississippi River Park and Nathan Bedford Forrest Park is now Health Sciences Park.

Evidently the voting group learned that there is a bill in the state house of representatives which would prevent renaming parks named after historical military figures.

This Is a Sad Day.  Throwing History Out the Window Like That.  --Old Secesh
