Hours from historic change

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- "The Confederate flag is coming off the grounds of the South Carolina Statehouse."

That's what South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley said before signing a bill that removes the Confederate flag from the grounds of the South Carolina Statehouse.

A ceremony will be held Friday morning to mark the historic event.

The Confederate flag was raised at the Statehouse more than 50 years ago to protest the civil rights movement.
