Tennessee bill would end proclamation honoring General

News

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Tennessee will set aside a day in July to honor a Confederate General.

State Representative London Lamar just filed a bill to make sure that doesn’t happen. Right now, the law requires the Governor to proclaim Nathan Bedford Forrest Day.

That turned into controversy for Governor Bill Lee last year. The governor told News 2 last year that he wanted to change the law.
