The Confederate Flag over Tybee Island

During the Civil War, Tybee Island was used as the base from which Union forces attacked and captured Fort Pulaski. The Confederate flag that is now shown was flown until March 1863. The flag flew over Tybee Island when Confederate troops occupied Tybee. They vacated Tybee Island in November 1861. This flag is commonly called the "Stars and Bars."
