During this extremely volatile time in America when we are taking down statues and renaming towns and schools et cetera, there is one town that also needs attention. It is the Town of Amherst and the college of the same name.

It is a known fact that Jeffery Amherst gave the Native American Indians of that area blankets infected with smallpox to kill them so their land could be taken over. If we want to not reward people for their heinous acts, here is one that should be added to the list.
