A clash between profanity-flinging Confederate flag supporters and counter-protesters during a Confederate Flag Day rally Saturday nearly escalated to violence at Pennsylvania’s Gettysburg National Military Park.
A pickup truck driver wearing a Confederate flag hat shouted “The South will rise again” from out his window as he drove by the afternoon protest at the park’s Eternal Peace Light Monument.
A counter-protester among the throngs of masked demonstrators waving black flags shouted a reply with a megaphone.
“Our cause is more important than your heritage,” the demonstrator barked.
