The Gettysburg South Dakota city council Monday night decided to remove the Confederate battle flag from its police vehicles, buildings and patches. The council had discussed the removal of the flag at last month’s meeting, heard from constituents and ultimately decided to remove the imagery Monday. Gettysburg takes its name from Gettysburg Pennsylvania, the location of a major battle during the American Civil War. The use of Confederate iconography had again been brought to light following calls for racial justice after the murder of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. Floyd’s uncle Selwyn Jones is a resident of Gettysburg and spoke at the council meeting asking for the flag to be removed.
