Summerville neighbors fence-in house with Confederate flag

SUMMERVILLE, SC (AP) - The neighbors of a white Summerville woman who moved into a historically black neighborhood and began flying a Confederate flag have built at least one large fence along the side of the house.

The Post and Courier reported that neighbors of Anne Chambers Caddell have built at least one 8-foot tall wooden fence on one side of her house and posts have gone up another side.

Caddell tells the newspaper she assumes they are trying to block the view of her home.

Caddell raised the hackles of her neighbors when she moved into the Brownsville neighborhood in June and began flying the Confederate flag about a month later.

Last fall, about 70 residents marched and sang civil rights-era anthems outside her house to protest the flag.
