161 c ImageWarrington Fla. Oct. 20 (1861). Partly readable circular datestamp with "Paid" and "5" in circle handstamps on red and blue 11-Star Confederate Flag and "Leon Rifles" Patriotic (F11-24) cover to Thomasville Ga., "Co. A 1st Reg. Fla. Vols." regimental imprint, "Childs N.O." publisher's imprint, stars arranged in shape of Christian cross, sealed tear and reduced at right, light soiling

VERY FINE. AN EXTREMELY RARE CONFEDERATE REGIMENTAL FLAG PATRIOTIC DESIGN USED FROM FLORIDA. THE ARRANGEMENT OF STARS IN THE SHAPE OF A CHRISTIAN CROSS IS UNIQUE TO THIS DESIGN.

"Leon Rifles" was the nickname given to the 1st Florida Infantry Regiment organized in April 1861 under Colonel James Patton Anderson. Company A was commanded by A. Perry Amaker. The distinctive Leon Rifles flag design is cited by Stephen R. Boyd in Patriotic Envelopes of the Civil War: The Iconography of Union and Confederate Covers as a "unique design unknown on any other Southern patriotic cover or flag. The eleven stars form an upright cross, making explicit the Southern's view of the close ties between Southern independence and Christianity" (p. 31).
