Civil War II-- 519: What To Do With Georgia Counties Named After Confederates?

From the July 13, 2017, Google Alerts for Confederate.

**  Terry Dickinson:  As Confederate statues are moved, Georgia county names will stand.  (Win)  Since there has been no black effort to change the names.  But, sadly, now that it has been brought to their attention....

Counties with Confederate names:  Toombs (Robert), Stephens (Alexander) and Hill (Ben).  There is a Lee County, but that was named after Robert E. Lee's father, a Revolutionary War hero.  But since he fathered a Confederate, I suppose his name will have to go as well.

Perhaps this will become the NAACP's next great effort to erase history.
