A Confederate flag that flew over the grounds of the Alabama Capitol in Montgomery was taken down with little fanfare Wednesday morning on orders of the state's governor. AL.com reported that Alabama Governor Robert Bentley, a Republican, said it was "the right thing to do." Two workers came out of the Capitol building about 8:20 a.m. and with no fanfare quickly and quietly took the flag down.
