Confederate Flag Gets South Carolina Neighbors Up in Arms


SUMMERVILLE, S.C. -- A year ago, dozens marched to protest the Confederate flag that a white woman flew from her porch in a historically black Southern neighborhood. After someone threw a rock at her porch, she put up a wooden lattice. That was just the start of the building.

Earlier this year, two solid 8-foot-high wooden fences were built on either side of Annie Chambers Caddell's modest brick house to shield the Southern banner from view.

Late this summer, Caddell raised a flagpole higher than the fences to display the flag. Then a similar pole, with an American flag, was placed across the fence in the yard of neighbor Patterson James, who is black.
