Fort Amherst needs name changed.

This petition had 154 supporters

Considering that Fort Amherst is named after Jeffrey Amherst, a British Genocidal General who suggested distributing small pox infected blankets to the Native Americans, a name change is essential!  From Wikipedia: 

Amherst replied:[22]

P.S. You will Do well to try to Innoculate [sic] the Indians by means of Blankets, as well as to try Every other method that can serve to Extirpate this Execrable Race. I should be very glad your Scheme for Hunting them Down by Dogs could take Effect, but England is at too great a Distance to think of that at present.
