Confederate flag supporters walk through protesters in front the South Carolina Statehouse.

On July 10, 2015, officials removed the Confederate flag that flew on the statehouse grounds. Today, the South Carolina Secessionist Party assembled in front of the capitol building to raise the flag again for a day, with a crowd of about 50 supporters. Nearby, a dozen or so protestors held a counter rally. South Carolina Public Radio's Laura Hunsberger has more on the story.
