A South Carolina museum is sending a $350,000 request to lawmakers for displaying a pair of Confederate flags that flew over the Statehouse grounds, but its leaders have another suggestion: showcase the banners someplace else.
The Confederate Relic Room and Military Museum Commission approved a plan Thursday to convert office space to exhibit two flags: the last flag removed in 2015 from the state Capitol grounds after the Charleston church massacre, and the first flag unfurled in 2000 after a compromise to remove the banner from atop the Statehouse Dome.
Both flags had flown next to the Confederate Soldier Monument at Gervais and Main streets.
