From a report at the first link below:
In the you-can’t-make-up-this-stuff category: A petition on change.org with some 75,000 signatures is asking a Florida school district to change the name of a high school that is named after Nathan Bedford Forrest, a Confederate general and the first “grand wizard” of the Ku Klux Klan.
Nathan B. Forrest was a Confederate General and a Mamphis, Tennessee slave trader. He was also the reported founder of the Ku Klux Klan.
Bedford was the Confederate general who infamously slaughtered Black Union soldiers who’d already surrendered.
