Alexandria has moved another step closer to renaming Jefferson Davis Highway, following the city council's decision that the roadway will no longer bear the name of the Confederacy's one and only president. About a half dozen citizens offered their ideas for new names at a public hearing Monday night at the Oswald Durant Art Center.

The renaming of the Jefferson Davis highway in Arlington and Alexandria is going forward. I submitted all of the names suggested on this forum (David Duke, Robert E. Lee, Donald Trump, Rachel Carson and Peace Highway) but none of these were raised at the recent city council meeting. The names suggested there were as follows:

Gen. Samuel Vaughn Wilson
William Harvey Carney
Mary Elizabeth Bowser,
Abraham Lincoln
Barack Obama
Heather Heyer
Mildred and Richard Loving,
Patrick Henry
U.S. Route One

What do you think? Civil war history buffs would probably like Mary Elizabeth Bowser, She was a freed slave who spied on the Confederate White House.
