COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Nearly two years after South Carolina lawmakers promised to publicly display the final Confederate flag removed from Statehouse grounds, the banner still sits in a box in a museum.
That's because the Legislature hasn't provided any money for a new display.
Allen Robeson is executive director of the State Museum's Confederate Relic Room. He initially requested nearly $4 million for a high-tech project that would include the flag, along with screens displaying pictures or names of Civil War dead.
He's now asking for $200,000 to convert two museum offices into a display room.
