Lowering the Confederate Flag

Fans in a Flashbulb

Thursday evening, July 9, 2015, Governor Nikki R. Haley signed into law a bill to lower the Confederate battle flag that had been waving at the South Carolina State House in Columbus for 50 years. After emotional debates among lawmakers and over three weeks after the Charleston massacre, the flag was ceremonially lowered this morning under loud cheers. The flag itself will be housed at the state-owned Confederate Relic Room and Military Museum in Columbus.
