The Confederate battle flag, always a source of tension and conflict in South Carolina, brought our state into the international spotlight in 2000. Over 40,000 South Carolinians demonstrated on Martin Luther King Day to remove the Confederate battle flag from the dome of the South Carolina State House. I read angry (often racist) letters to the editor every day in the S.C. State Paper.

"Southern Gentlemen" was a visual response to this war of words.
