The push to remove Confederate names from Pentagon properties continues

An eight-member commission will visit the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York with barracks named for Robert E. Lee, commanding general of the rebel army of the Confederate States of America. Such bases as Fort Bragg, North Carolina, Fort AP Hill in Virginia and Fort Benning in Georgia could also be changed because they were named after officers who left the Union ranks to join the Confederacy. The commission is required by Congress to consider renaming “anything that commemorates the Confederate States of America or any person that served voluntarily with the Confederate States of America.” Keith Peters Washington
