Confederate flags will fly above the parade ground inside Fort Sumter after being removed from the fort’s outer wall following the shooting deaths of nine black parishioners at Charleston’s Emanuel AME Church.
Fort Sumter National Monument Superintendent Tim Stone said Monday the flags will be part of an historical display at the fort where the Civil War began.
The display will include flags that flew over Sumter during the war and include two Union and two Confederate flags.
Stone says that as a focal point of Charleston Harbor, the only flag that should be seen flying atop the monument is the current U.S. flag.
The Confederate banners were removed from atop the monument after the white man charged in the June shootings appeared in photos holding the Confederate flag.
