Does the liberty tree flag say an appeal to heaven or an appeal to god?

The flags, created to fly on the first naval forces under control of General Washington said "Appeal to Heaven." They were essentially saying that in order to beat the overwhelming force of the British empire, the Americans would to ask for divine intervention. That is mostly true, but either statement was seen on flags during the Revolution. However, the statement "Appeal to God" had a more deeper meaning than simply asking for divine intervention. Just as in the current American justice system of appeals, each appeal is to a higher court than the previous one. Injustice by the British could only be "appealed" to God as the court system in place was run by the British (an unjust system). If man's laws cause injustice, then the only "appeal" can be made to a higher power than man. Therefore, an "appeal to God or Heaven" was more of a derivation of their own divine right to independence than praying for intervention. This notion of the colonists divine right to freedom is what gave the saying its strength and conviction.

What does it mean when a case is reversed and remanded case remanded for resentencing otherwise affirmed?

It looks like the decision of an appeal court. It's too bad that the question is not posed clearly. An appeal court reverses a decision when it changes the decision that is being appealed from. An appeal court affirms a decision when it decides not to change it. A matter before the courts is "remanded" when it is put over to another day. The word "remanded" is particularly used in criminal matters especially where the accused person is in custody. My guess is that the story goes something like this: A person has been convicted of a crime and sentenced to a term in jail. While he is serving his sentence, his lawyer has launched an appeal both against the conviction and against the sentence, stating that the jail term was too long. The appeal court has rejected the appeal against conviction but has accepted the appeal against sentence. The sentence "is reversed" and the prisoner remanded in custody until the lower court can impose a more appropriate sentence, "resentencing". However, the conviction stands; it is "otherwise affirmed".
