Reattribute Jacksonville, FL from Andrew Jackson to Samuel L. Jackson

This petition had 74 supporters


The City of Jacksonville FL, named after President Andrew Jackson has inherent negativity because of its namesake. 

President Andrew Jackson famously orchestrated the Trail of Tears; a horrific stain on our American culture and an embarrassment to North Florida. 

We ask that the City of Jacksonville keeps the name Jacksonville. However, We the signed demand that the name is attributed to Samuel L. Jackson to replace the negative association with the positive association of a person who developed their character in Social Work and went on to Star in over 100 feature films. 

Our history is our history, but we don't have to celebrate it.
