A Campaign Wrapped in a Confederate Flag

Record #:
Following the Charleston shootings in June of 2015, many Southern cities and towns elected to remove symbols of the Confederacy from public buildings. Hillsborough, North Carolina removed the words “Confederate memorial” from a town museum in July 2015, and sparked a debate among citizens. As a result, the town’s Board of Commissioners elections became a single-issue debate about whether to protect Hillsborough’s Confederate legacy or not.
