On Wednesday, the board of visitors of The Citadel voted 9-3 to remove the Confederate Naval Jack from its chapel “to an appropriate location” on its campus.
That isn’t all they are doing to destroy history however…they will remove the stained glass windows representing the reconciliation of the North and South as well…

Given the nature of the cathedral space, Hall said, a change in the windows will take “time, energy and money.” In the interim, he said, a display will be placed near the windows “to explain them in their historical context.”

“We will gather a representative group to work with us to imagine how new windows can best represent our shared history of war and peace, racial division and reconciliation,” he said. “We will also discuss the future of the Jackson and Lee windows.”
