CIVIL WAR 1861 to 1865

THIS IS MY TRIBUTE OF HONOR AND RESPECT TO MY GREAT GRANDFATHER MARTIN D. PATTERSON WHO FOUGHT IN THE CIVIL WAR AS A SOLDIER FOR THE GREAT CONFEDERATE STATE OF FLORIDA


"Deo Vindice"
(God our Vindicator)


Secession banner January 1861, presented by "the Ladies of Broward's Neck" and was displayed at the Florida capitol when the Ordinance of Secession was signed on January 11, 1861.

1861 pattern Florida state flag
Early in 1861, the Florida legislature passed an act directing Governor Madison S. Perry to adopt "an appropriate device for a State flag which shall be distinctive in character." On September 13, 1861, the governor reported that the new state flag had been deposited in his office, and the secretary of state recorded a description of Florida's first official state flag. Whether the flag was ever raised over the capitol or on the battlefield is unknown. This illustration is based on the written description.
