Fort Burton's Flag?

Flag of Fort Burton?



An old friend of mine, Steven Driskell, emailed me about Fort Burton's flag yesterday. Here is Steven's email:

"In regards to your Fort Burton post, a New York Times article (attached) mentioned that the rebel flag captured contained the following inscription: "God Armeth the Patriot." Curious about this, I did a Google search and found that a flag with the same inscription was sold at an auction in 2002.

I wonder if this is the flag of Fort Burton? "

It is VERY interesting that this flag would have THE exact wording on the flag as that of the New York Times article. Also, the article confirms it was a "Stars and Bars" flag. Here is part of the story below:
