Crowds have been gathering since before dawn today to watch the removal of the Confederate battle flag from Statehouse grounds in Columbia. Gov. Nikki Haley signed a bill to take the flag down Thursday afternoon, and the removal ceremony is scheduled to take place at 10 a.m.
If you aren’t able to make it up to Columbia today, you’ll have a few options for watching live streams of the event online. SCETV will host a live stream here, C-SPAN will host a live stream here, and NBC will host a live stream here. We’ll embed the live streams on this page when they become available.
In the meantime, here’s the video of Gov. Haley signing the bill into law:
