The Confederacy Under Attack-- Part 346: Mims Park in Atlanta Assailed

From the Google Alerts for August 26, 2016, for Confederate.

**  Critics assail Atlanta park named for Confederate soldier.  (Loss)  The park in question is Mims Park.  It was named for Livingston Mims, mayor of Atlanta in 1900, who was also a major in the Confederate Army.  His descendants donated some of the land for the park which is now overgrown and in bad shape.

Atlanta's current mayor, Kasim Reed, a black man, says the park will be rehabilitated and likely will get a new name.

Perhaps Name It BLM Park or the Reed Parl?  --Old Secesh
