Memphis renames city parks that honored Confederacy


The Memphis City Council on Monday voted to change the name of the city's Confederate Park two other parks that honor notable members of the Confederacy.

MyFoxMemphis.com reports that the council voted 9-0 to pass a resolution renaming Confederate Park and Jefferson Davis Park, located in downtown Memphis and Nathan Bedford Forrest Park, which is located a few miles away.

Three council members abstained from voting.

The idea for the resolution to change the name of all three parks emerged Monday morning, after council members learned of a state House bill that would prevent parks named after historical military figures from being renamed.

Is this State bill already in place? If so, then they can't re-name the park. Am I reading this right?
