Confederate grave and azaleas

Posted by

This grave is in St Helena's Church Cemetery in Beaufort, SC. There are a number of confederate graves there, marked with this iron cross and most with a confederate flag. The original "Start & Bars" flag is used, which many consider less inflammatory that the battle flag (red with a blue "X" and white start).

Who puts out the flags? Surely not relatives.
