A high school in Fairfax County, Virginia has a new name.

J.E.B. Stuart will be renamed to Justice High. 

Stuart was a general in the Confederate army during the Civil War. 

The school board voted 7-4 after five hours of talks. 

Much of the debate was what to rename the school. Suggestions included former Supreme Court justice Thurgood Marshall and civil rights leader Barbara Rose Johns. 

Some wanted to shorten the name to Stuart High to recude costs of changing the name.
