Confederate Monuments, Street Names, and School Names . In the past few years, there has been a considerable discussion concerning prominently-placed monuments to Confederate leaders.

Why, or why not? Is there any compromise solution possible that would be acceptable to those who passionately believe in one or the other courses of action?
