Winters Orders Flag Down; Protesters Put One Back
Thursday, 02 July 2015 00:35
Protesters replanted the Confederate Battle Flag on the flagstaff outside the Chattooga County Courthouse Wednesday evening.
Earlier this week the flag was removed by the Sons of Confederate Veterans Camp 507 after County Commissioner Jason Winters ordered the group to do so. But the Confederate veterans group was not happy and support for the Confederate flag started to grow.
A protest was organized for 6 p.m. Wednesday and that attracted about 100 vehicles garnished with Confederate flags and mementos. The group that gathered at the Pennville Walmart left at 7 p.m. in parade formation for a drive to downtown Summerville. Eventually they parked their vehicles and started protesting.
