ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the flag received by Captain Alonzo Millett from the ladies of San Antonio, Texas in 1861. The motto of the flag attests to the new national feeling circulating through the South at the time. However, it is coincidentally representative of the true Saint Andrew's Cross of Scotland symbol, which is a white cross on a blue field. The flag measures 46 x 44 inches, contains white fringe and red border, and has 11 eyelets along the hoist edge for attachment. The material used was silk, although its fringe was wool.
