I personally play a small role in getting the name of the former Jefferson Davis school in West Palm beach Florida changed, and am currently spearheading an effort to get the name of "Negro creek" in Illinois changed, and I am proud of both of those efforts

NK Here is a couple example why you will never see that happen. It is not just the history of the South it is part of the history of the US. Good or bad no one can change the fact that it happened.

The Civil War Trust was awarded the "Partner in Conservation Award" by the United States Department of the Interior in 2010.

No Casino Gettysburg The Gettysburg Battlefield has faced two separate threats from proposed casinos. In 2005 a proposal was put forward to build a casino with 3,000 slot machines less than a mile from the Gettysburg Battlefield. Soon after the proposal was announced, the Civil War Trust joined forces with a local concerned citizens group called No Casino Gettysburg to advocate against the proposal. Later, the Civil War Trust formed the Stop the Slots Coalition, a collection of national and local groups opposed to the casino. As a result of these grassroots efforts, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board voted on December 20, 2006, to reject the Gettysburg casino proposal.[6] In 2010 a new Gettysburg Casino application was filed and the Civil War Trust, with a broad coalition of partners, undertook a successful campaign to prevent approval of this new application. Nearly 300 prominent historians wrote to the Pennsylvania Gaming Board, urging the rejection of the application. Susan Eisenhower, Emmy award-winning filmmaker Ken Burns, two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning author David McCullough, Medal of Honor recipient Paul W. Bucha, composer John Williams, and actors Matthew Broderick, Stephen Lang (actor), and Sam Waterston were all featured in a Jeff Griffiths produced video declaring their opposition to the proposed Gettysburg casino. On April 14, 2011, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board voted to reject this second proposal to bring casino gambling to the doorstep of Gettysburg National Military Park.

Stop the Wilderness Walmart Together with the Friends of Wilderness Battlefield, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Piedmont Environmental Council, the National Parks Conservation Association, Preservation Virginia and a group of concerned local residents, the Civil War Trust opposed the construction of a Walmart Supercenter on the Wilderness Battlefield in Orange County, Virginia. Following a nationwide outcry from preservationists and historians alike, Walmart Stores, Inc. announced in January 2011 that it had “decided to preserve” rather than develop the historic site where local officials had given the company permission to construct its newest superstore in 2009. Pulitzer Prize-winning author and historian James McPherson had identified the site as part of “the nerve center of the Union Army during the Battle of the Wilderness.” Civil War Trust President Jim Lighthizer praised Walmart’s decision, noting that founder Sam Walton – a veteran of the Second World War – would have been “proud” of his company’s move to preserve the hallowed ground. “We stand ready to work with Walmart to put this controversy behind us and protect the battlefield from further encroachment,” Lighthizer stated. “We firmly believe that preservation and progress need not be mutually exclusive, and welcome Walmart as a thoughtful partner in efforts to protect the Wilderness Battlefield.

And they are working on saving more sites as we speak.

Well, one less thing named for a Democrat. :)

I'll grant you that while Nathan Forrest had a complicated story, his role in the founding of the KKK is probably a bad enough deed to override anything else he did that was noteworthy.

As for the other things... well, it's the city's choice. If that's what the people of Memphis want through the people they vote for, so be it. I don't think it serves anyone, however, to attempt to scour the names of people like Jefferson Davis from everything, however.

I don't particularly like finding myself sharing any kind of agreement with the likes of people like the KKK, but unfortunately we all find ourselves aligned with miscreants at times.
