Last week, after several weeks of criticism following the tragic shooting in Charleston, South Carolina’s state legislature voted to remove the Confederate battle flag from the State Capitol. Richard Brodsky writes that such battles over the Confederate flag are not new; in 1997 Governor George Pataki ordered that flag in the New York State Capitol be removed. Though Pataki and his legislative colleagues did the right thing, it still led to a war of words with Georgia.
