    Confederate Flag Comes Down in SC

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     JStidham22 witnessed as the Confederate flag came down at the South Carolina state capitol Friday. 'More than a thousand people gathered on the street and on State House grounds to watch the historic moment. Loud cheers filled the air as the flag came down for the final time.'

    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    The confederate flag is taken down for the last time after flying for 54 years at the State House in Columbia S.C., July 10, 2015. The call to take down the flag was made by S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley after Senator Clementa Pinckney and eight other African-Americans were fatally shot during a bible study at the historic Emanuel A.M.E. church in Charleston S.C., on June 17, by a killer who had supported the rebel flag.
