I see that NBF's name has come up again at Middle Tennessee State University.  It seems that the ROTC building is named after NBF.  I'll admit I don't know the history of the building, i.e. when was it named? who endowed the naming, was it always named for Forrest, etc.?    I really don't know much about it and see that the SCV has picked up the fight.

My question to the learned group is, isn't this a fight for CW preservation?  I am not a great Forrest fan.  Those that know me know that I'm about as Union blue as one can get but I am concerned about these type of attacks on history.  Should I be concerned about this?  I don't know, it bothers me.  I'll probably be considered a racist if I don't support a name change but it seems to me an attempt to wipe out memory of the Civil War.

 

Thanks for listening. :)
