Confederate flag battle possible in South Carolina House

Posted By on Wed, Jul 8, 2015 at 6:56 AM

Resistance is reported in the South Carolina House to Senate-passed legislation to remove the Confederate battle flag from the state house and leave its display to a museum.

This is more like the Dixie legislatures I know — fighting for the Lost Cause 150 years and counting after Appomattox. I'm grateful, I guess, that the Arkansas legislature in preserving the Robert E. Lee Holiday didn't add a required flag display on the Capitol grounds, a near religious relic on a par for many with the Ten Commandments.
