Confederate flag comes down at South Carolina legislature

The confederate flag in South Carolina, pictured in June 2015, was removed from the state's legislature on July 10, 2015The divisive Confederate flag came down Friday at South Carolina’s legislature, drawing a line under a furor rekindled last month by the murder of nine black churchgoers by an alleged white supremacist. Thousands gathered at the State House in Columbia to cheer the removal of the red, white and blue Civil War-era battle flag, regarded by many as a bitter symbol of racism and slavery that has no place in modern America. The flag has been a focal point of controversy in South Carolina — birthplace of the Confederacy — since it was raised in the early 1960s atop the State House dome in defiance of the civil rights movement then sweeping the United States.
