A Confederate general reinactor talking with another man

Walking in Charleston Harbor, I saw a large Confederate flag in the distance. Thinking that South Carolina had stopped flying it, I went closer to see where it was attached, which turned out to be the bed of a pickup truck. A man dressed as a Confederate general was nearby, perhaps the man whose truck it was. He held another flag belonging to a military unit and was talking to another man who held his own flag. They were otherwise alone, and their expressions brought home the emotionality and conflict of those who still hold the Confederacy dear today.
