"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? "
LOUISIANA IN THE CIVIL WAR
The goal of Louisiana in the Civil War is to provide an online resource of information and links to our great state's involvement in the war. Topics expected to be commonly covered are: Battles fought in Louisiana, battles that Louisianians participated in, unit histories, rosters, uniforms and equipment of Louisiana soldiers, personalities to include not only the leadership of the state and armies but the common soldier, flags and resources to research/read on the state's role in the war.
Louisiana in the Civil War strongly supports the input of the Civil War community. Submissions of stories, information, etc. are welcome and full credit will be given for what we share.____________________________________________
