Texas has more than 180 public symbols of the Confederacy. Explore them here.

The Confederate Soldiers' Monument on the south lawn of the state Capitol in Austin.

John Jordan for The Texas Tribune

Texas has more than 180 public symbols of the Confederacy, with dozens of monuments dedicated during or after the Civil Rights era. 

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center — a nonprofit legal organization that monitors hate groups — the symbols take the form of schools, roads, monuments and even county names spread across the state. The center lists just Virginia as having more symbols than Texas. 

Several entries on this list may not be around for much longer. For example, the Austin City Council has begun the process of renaming Robert E. Lee Road. But many others remain untouched. The Texas Tribune reported last August that many school districts with schools named after Confederate figures have not considered changing anything

In the weeks following violent rallies by white supremacists in Charlottesville, public attention on symbols of the Confederacy has reached a fever pitch. In the late hours on Sunday, the University of Texas at Austin began removing three confederate statues from its campus grounds. And over the weekend, hundreds of protesters rallied against Confederate monuments in Houston and Dallas

The list at the bottom of this page outlines known Confederate symbols in Texas. Most of this list, which is incomplete, comes from the Southern Poverty Law Center. Several monuments, schools and roads have been added through reader submissions. Help us further fill this list by sending us the name of Confederate symbols we're missing.

Interesting how the biggest monument to the confederacy in the state of Texas is somehow invisible to the KDH. I don't think it's on purpose as much as it's literally blindlingly obvious. Fort Hood was named for General Hood a premier general fighting on the side of the Confederate States of America and in support of slavery. Changing the name of that Fort would more than equal taking down every other single monument to the Confederacy in Texas combined. I bet most people who serve in the military, especially African Americans don't realize that every day they serve there, they are honoring the memory of that Confederate General who fought to keep their ancestors in chains.

Look at the dates all put up during the segregated South but for one. Oh what about Fort Hood?
