    House votes to limit display of Confederate flag in national cemeteries

    May 19, 2016

    WASHINGTON, May 19 (UPI) -- The House of Representatives voted Thursday to restrict the use of the Confederate battle flag in national cemeteries.

    The vote was the first-ever roll call vote in the House on the issue of the Confederate flag, which some regard as patriotic and historic expression and others as a reminder of American slavery.

    The 265-169 vote was for approval of an amendment to a military construction and veterans' affairs bill prohibiting federal spending at veterans' cemeteries that display the flag.
