It will now be moved to a place that many said it the only fitting home for a flag that carries a painful part of US history: a museum.
The South Carolina Confederate Relic Room and Military Museum, to be exact. After the flag was taken down, we decided to visit the museum to see what the Confederate flag would be joining.

This is where the South Carolina Confederate flag will rest.

The flag was not on display Friday and is not expected to be until later this year, a museum employee told The Independent, adding that they are not sure where it will be displayed.
