In 1790 Henry Burbeck took a detachment of troops southward to establish a post on the St. Mary’s River, the boundary between Georgia and then-Spanish Florida. His purpose was to watch over negotiations with the southern Indians and probably to keep an eye on the Spanish as well. Nathan Hayward, surgeon to the detachment, presented this drawing to Burbeck, probably at the time of completion of the blockhouse and its outer defenses. It includes a fine rendering of the US flag.
