February 25th, 2017 – What Flag is Flying over Castle Pinckney?

 The day after South Carolina seceded, a red flag, with a swallowtail and a large white star with an upside down crescent moon at the top near the flag staff was raised over the Charleston Custom House.  It then spread to other cities as a symbol of secession. With the adoption of the South Carolina National Flag it had brief usage. It was subsequently flown on the C.S.S. Dixie.
