House Republicans on Thursday withdrew a proposal that would have permitted the limited display of the Confederate flag at National Park Service-run cemeteries in states that observe a holiday commemorating the Confederacy, and only at the graves of rebels who died in the Civil War.

Andersonville National Cemetery, Andersonville National Historic Site
Chalmette National Cemetery, Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve, New Orleans
Vicksburg National Cemetery, Vicksburg National Military Park
