"Per Weis' "Ancestral Roots. . ." (175:1), (239:2), he was King of York & Dublin. Concerning Olaf's parentage : "Colonial and Revolutionary Lineages in America" shows him as the son of Sigtrygg and Eadgyth, the daughter of Edward the Elder. However, in his excellent book, "A History of the Vikings", Gwyn Jones states matter-of-factly that Olaf died less than a year after his marriage to Eadgyth and that Olaf was his son by a previous marriage."

Gen. Pierre Gustav Taunton BEAUREGARD C.S.A.

May 1818 - ____

ID Number: I91722

  • TITLE: Gen.
  • RELIGION: devout Roman Catholic
  • OCCUPATION: CSA Cmd of the Confederate Army of the Mississippi; and former Superintendent of West Point
  • RESIDENCE: Bernard Parish, LA and Charleston, SC
  • BIRTH: May 1818, St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana
  • RESOURCES: See: notes Bio

Notes


General Pierre Gustav Taunton Beauregard designed the flag a devout Catholic, he specifically chose the Saint Andrew's Cross because it was the symbol of Christ first disciple. I know Miles of South Carolina submitted a similar design, but his was laughed at and made fun of for looking like a pair of suspenders see Deveraux Cannon's Flags of the Confederacy. The second design was submitted by General Beauregard.


the "X" has a term within heraldry. It is usually blazoned as a "Saltire". For example, the Confederate Battle Flag might be blazoned "Gules, 13 mullets argent on a saltire, azure". "Gules" was the old Norman French word for a red fur, used for red on a shield; 'saltire' was the 'X', azure, of course, blue. "Mullets" was the term for star; apparently it was left as just "mullets" if 5 point, as any other number seems to be mentioned. "Argent" could be silver, white or a light grey. Heraldry in its familiar form was developed under the Norman French way back in the 1100s, although designs and logos for units and governments go back to the beginning of such things.


Later on, this "saltire" would become the emblems for St. Andrew in Scotland and for St. Patrick in Ireland. It may replicate the position of the cross when carried on the shoulder (hence the diagonal orientation). There are crosses mentioned as such in heraldry, but the design on the Confederate Battle Flag would most likely be blazoned as a saltire. When that "X" shape does not touch the edge of the design, it is known as a 'saltorel'. Crosses are the traditional up/down orientation.


I'd be surprised if the designers of the Starry Cross were not aware of some of the history behind the designs, but you never know.


HISTORY RIDES ON
Louisiana gets back stolen Civil War saddle
Monday, October 11, 2004
By Steve Cannizaro
St. Bernard/Plaquemines bureau
P.G.T. Beauregard, Confederate general, superintendent of the military academy at West Point just before the Civil War and afterward head of the state militia now known as the Louisiana National Guard, never forgot his roots.


When Beauregard, born in St. Bernard Parish in May 1818, had a pigskin saddle made in Paris in 1862, the state seal of Louisiana was affixed to a breast strap and bridle for his horse.


It is unclear whether Beauregard, whose statue stands at the main entrance to City Park in New Orleans, ever got to use the fancy saddle; it was captured that year by a Union blockade on the Mississippi River. But now through June, the public can see it on display at the museum of the Jackson Barracks National Guard base on St. Claude Avenue at the Orleans-St. Bernard parish line.


The saddle is on loan from the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts, formed in 1638 to train officers for militias. It is the third-oldest chartered military organization in the world, and the oldest in the Western Hemisphere. Representatives of the group were in the New Orleans area last week to escort the saddle to the museum and participate in several wreath layings, including one at Chalmette Monument on the site of the Battle of New Orleans.


"In view of the fact Beauregard was from St. Bernard, (the display) is really a significant opportunity for people to see something that has a connection with this area," said Stan Amerski, curator of the Jackson Barracks museum.


"It should strike a whole bunch of interest" among history and military buffs, as well teachers interested in organizing a field trip for students, Amerski said. He said groups can arrange a free tour by calling (504) 278-8242. The museum is open Mondays through Fridays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.


The federal government auctioned the saddle as contraband after its capture, and it was purchased by a Union officer, Col. Charles Whelden, who used it during the remainder of the war, Amerski said.


Whelden was a member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company, and when he died his widow donated the saddle to the group's museum in Faneuil Hall in Boston.


The saddle was accompanied to New Orleans by about 150 members of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts.



Today, the Massachusetts group plays a supportive role in preserving the historic and patriotic traditions of the military. Its members include Boston area businessmen, some current and former military men, and it has had four of its members become U.S. presidents: James Monroe, Chester Alan Arthur, Calvin Coolidge and John F. Kennedy.


William J. O'Brien, a retired banker, holds the title of captain commanding of the Massachusetts group. O'Brien said the group makes an annual trip and that when members chose New Orleans, they thought the saddle would be of interest because Beauregard was a native of the area.


"It is outstanding that they had the thought of combining their annual activities with bringing this artifact home to a place where it can be really appreciated," Amerski said.
