Good article although I didn't see a date on it.

This graph is from their study of when the monuments went up.



Couldn't get the interactive map to post here correctly, but do take a look at it.

Cities, roads and elementary schools in Washington State and also California named after Robert E. Lee ? How can that be ?

Monuments are also found in states far from the Confederacy, including Arizona (2) and even Massachusetts (1), a stalwart of the Union during the Civil War.

But we were told this is just a southern thing.

10 military bases, man we have a lot of work to do.

The date is in your link. 4/21/2016.

Sorry but I don't know why you are saying we were told this is just a southern thing? Anyone who made any effort at all would know there are streets and schools and such all over the country. I believe probably a good half the States or so have some semblance of this. ( streets, schools, monuments etc )
