  •  I googled "buildings named after (4+ / 0-)

    Nathan Bedford Forrest" and came up with this.

    A high school with that name in Jacksonville, Florida will be renamed Westside High School this year, but it's amazing that they are only just now changing it.

    I found another building at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, Tennessee by that name which will not be renamed according to this local TV news station. I can't find a date for the story, though.

    That there is a single building left in the US with this infamous name is disgusting.
