Times photographer Brian Chilson is observing the gathering of Confederate monument worshippers and counter-demonstrators in Hot Springs today. I'll pass along some of the sights here and I'm sure he'll post a full Facebook folder eventually.

By midday, only a small group of neo-Confederates were on hand. They were greeted with signs representing divergent views. UPDATE: Several dozen Rebel reinforcements arrived later.
