Park service removes Confederate flags from Fort Sumter

(WCSC News 5) The Confederate flag is no longer flying over Fort Sumter. The National Park Service said the flag, along with other historic replicas, was taken down last week in the wake of the Charleston church shooting when Gov. Nikki Haley ordered the American flag lowered to half-staff. Officials with Fort Sumter say the flag will not be going back up. They also say they have decided to remove Confederate flag items from the fort’s gift shop.
