Hello: It is my belief that they should recognized these places that were Plantations as Plantations. To me it's like trying to hide the fact that slavery of a fellow human being ever happened. Many places have erased this history which makes black research twice as hard. As long as there is no slaves there is no problem. I also fill the same way about the places with Native Americans names. Rivers, Counties,etc. to not use them can deny they ever existed. Just my opinion. Frank R Wooten
