Confederate flag to be removed in a few hours

Posted: Updated:


After weeks of debate, the confederate flag comes down from the South Carolina State Capitol this morning.
Governor Nikki Haley signed the bill yesterday banning the flag from flying on state capitol grounds, ending a 54-year tradition.
Last night crowds gathered to have one last look at it before its lowered.
The flag will go to a museum.
A short ceremony is scheduled to start at 9 a.m. CST. Officers will exit the state house, lower the confederate flag, and bring it inside.
The public will be permitted to witness the flags removal from behind barriers.
