It's history! Like it or not the Confederate flag flies no more
JUL 10, 2015

One of the last views of the Confederate flag before it was removed from the South Carolina State House grounds.

COLUMBIA – A boisterous cheer went up from a crowd estimated at 12,000 people who had gathered at the South Carolina State House Friday morning. It was 10:09 a.m.

The Confederate flag, in a dignified ceremony, was lowered from the 30-foot flagpole, which had kept it aloft over the Confederate Soldiers Monument at the front of the State House grounds since 2000. It was the first time since 1961 that the flag had not flown on the capitol grounds. It will never do so again.

Bike riders were reminded not to pass the Greer Fire Department's truck.

A light rain could do nothing to dampen the patriotic spirit of Greer on Saturday morning.

Scores of children, along with their parents and grandparents, participated in the 18th annual July 4 Kid's Parade.

It was arguably the largest turnout for the event, which has become an annual tradition.

"It's about tradition and this is what Greer is all about," Mayor Rick Danner said. "It's an organic kind of thing that has grown over the years, and every year people invite friends and family so it continues to grow. This is what small towns are all about."
