The Confederacy Under Attack-- Part 9

From the July 11,2015, Yahoo! News/AP "South Carolina's Confederate flag is gone, but others remain" by Kathleen Foody, Jeffrey Collins and Meg Kinnard.

Several states have taken or are considering action to remove other Confederate flags and monuments.

The flag has been banished from the Alabama Capitol grounds and federal cemeteries.

And that good old anti-Confederate Memphis is working to remove the remains and statue of Nathan Bedford Forrest from a park.

But, Confederate flags remain on license plates and makes up part of the Mississippi and Georgia state flags.

Though named after a Confederate general, Fort Bragg in North Carolina will not have its name changed.

However, Fort Bragg city in California may have to change its name.  California Senate Bill 539 requires "A name associated with the Confederate States of America shall not be used to name state or local public property prior to January, 1, 2017, the name shall be changed and any sign associated with the name shall be removed."
