Civil War II-- 500: Now, It's the Confederate Statues and School Names in Jacksonville, Fla.

From the June 24, 2017, Google Alerts for Confederate.

**  Group seeks removal of Jacksonville's Confederate statue.  (Jacksonville, Fla.)  (Loss)  A 60-foot memorial with a Confederate soldier on top in Hemming Park.  It has been there for 120 years.

They don't stop there, however.

There is a statue of Confederate General Joseph Finnegan in the Old City Cemetery and a statue dedicated to the Woman of the Confederacy in Confederate Park (any you can be sure they're not too happy about that park's name either.)

Plus, there are schools in Jacksonville named after Confederates:  Robert E. Lee High School, Jefferson Davis Middle School, Kirby Smith Middle School and J.E.B. Stuart Middle School.
