State preservation of ACW flags

There is a strange little article being circulated by the Associate Press. Here's one iteration: "Civil War battle flags at risk as preservation efforts are hindered by states' budget woes."

The piece takes a budget measure proposed by New York's governor and generalizes it into a national movement to cut flag maintenance outlays ... without giving a single example beyond New York.

Channel 7 News in South Carolina responds to the generalized accusation: "S.C. Flags Still Being Preserved Despite Budget Cuts."
