With Peregrinus anchored right in front of the garrison, the crew found the display of the six flags that flew over it quite interesting:
US flag with 33 stars (1860)
South Carolina state flag (1861)
Confederate States "Stars and Bars" (1861) with seven stars: SC, TX, FL, AL, GA, LA, MS.
Confederate States "Stainless Banner" (1863) with thirteen stars
US flag with 35 stars (1865) -The Northern states never subtracted about a dozen stars from their colors, which sums up their stance regarding the possibility of secession
The tallest flagpole features the current US flag with 50 states
