In Fayetteville NC where Fort Bragg is located, locals seemed to have mixed opinions on changing the name of the base. Some people see renaming the base as erasing history. The man behind the name was known as someone who was disliked. Others argue that renaming the base after another soldier would do a disservice to those who already served at Fort Bragg. Some believe that no military or federal insulation should be named after any Confederate soldier doing so would reflect poorly on the fact that there are many people of color serving. Some also believe that the naming of Fort Bragg currently highlights the effort to defend the right to have slaves.
