IT’S GONE! Confederate battle flag, pole removed from South Carolina statehouse
It is a historic day in South Carolina, where a contingent of troopers from the South Carolina Highway Patrol lowered the Confederate battle flag that has shamefully flown on the grounds of the statehouse for decades for the last day. The flag was presented to the head of the Confederate Relic Room and Military Museum, which is where it will be displayed in the future. The flag’s flagpole was then removed.
