The Confederate battle flag flew below the Missouri state flag and the U.S. flag at the Confederate Memorial Historic Site near Higginsville, Mo., in 1997. Republican Gov. Matt Blunt has ordered the flag, which was ordered taken down in 2003 by Democratic Gov. Bob Holden's administration, to fly Sunday, June 5, 2005, at the historic site, where a graveside service is planned to mark Confederate Memorial Day, and the order has outraged Mary Ratliff, president of the Missouri State Conference of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.
