What did the British flag look like during the American Revolution? [It looked just as it does today -Webmaster]
Danielle, Fort Wayne, IN [01-14-1997]

I learned a lot. I used it for homeschooling and we had fun with the star activity. The funny thing is that the first time I tried it I folded it wrong and, with one cut, I made a perfect six pointed star. I'm happy to be an American and I believe that God will continue to bless us if we live "under God."
Marsha Owen, San Jose, CA [01-15-1997]

As a Vietnam Veteran and 4 years touring the world in the US Navy, I can say that no matter what country I visited, the good old USA is by far the best in every way. I fly the American Flag every day and belong to VFW Post 4668 here in LaSalle. I have a deep appreciation for all our forefathers did to make this country great, and all those who served then and now to protect our rights and freedoms, and liberty for all.

Nicole Early, Elmhusrt, Il [02-05-1997]

I was trying to find out how to fold and cut a 5-point star, which a math teacher had demonstrated to me years ago in a class on Pythagoras. My net searches on Pythagoras all came up empty. Then I remembered Betsy Ross, and voila! Your web page showing her secret for cutting the stars in our first flag. Yankee know-how beats Ancient Greek philosophy yet again. Cheers

My mom is helping me get information on Betsy Ross for a school report. This is very fun and interesting to me. My family and I did not know that Betsy made the first flag in Philadelphia. My dad thought she made it in the South. Also, we think it is neat that she sat next to George Washington and she was one of 17 children. My great great grandfather was one of 17 as well.

We will be dressing up like our book characters and getting up in front of the class to give our report. The part that I look forward to is when I pass out the 5-point star in one snip project.

Hi! Our fourth grade class is doing a unit on the American Revolution.We are also holding a colonial fair on: March 20, 1997. A friend of mine named Ann Denning is playing the part of Betsy Ross. After she was informed of this, she has become very interested in her. So has the rest of our class. The class and I would like to learn more information about her. We would appriciate it if you could grant our wish. Thanks Again!

Very interesting bit of history. My own family have a long heritage of Ross's, my mother's name being Leith-Ross. Her line goes back to about 1500 and come from mostly the Forbes family, who were descended from the deForbes family who came over with William the Conquerer in 1066. My Ross's came from the Aberdeen area on the east coast of Scotland, and were a very prominent family of landownwers and "Provosts" in Aberdeen itself.

Even if she was not directly responsible for the creation of the flag, Betsy Ross certainly always has and always will stand for it. She is in the great tradition of Uncle Sam -- a great, original, almost mythological American folk hero.

John-Paul Saindon, Bakersfield, Ca. USA [04-23-1997]

I wonder if Betsy ever pondered the thoughts and feelings her sewed together pieces of material would bring. Or that her very name would bring instant images of our flag draped across her lap as she sewed followed by that same flag flying FREELY in American air and over American soil. God Bless and Protect us all. Thank you Betsy and all our founding fathers (warts and all) for your heart, insight and farsight and devotion. Etta G.

I am in grade 9 and we are studying America's history in Social Science. One of our assessments is an oral, on a particular American person. I was assigned the job of studying and researching Betsy Ross. As I found hardly any information in Encyclopaedias and other such things, I turned to the Internet, where I found (gladly) the Betsy Ross Homepage. All my troubles and worries were solved! I could get to work writing my oral, as I had more than sufficient information on Betsy Ross. Thanks a heap! I'll have to send you an e-mail on the mark I receive! Once again...Thank you, thank you, thank you.

The flag has been special to me all my life, from Scouting through the Marines, and now as a veteran and Legionnaire. I have pledged to it, raised it, lowered it, saluted it, seen it at half-mast and upside down. I've buried my friends and brothers-in-arms with it, and seen it defiled and reviled both here and abroad. I hope, if no law ever passes against defiling it, a law will pass giving us immunity for what we do to those who dare. I found this site doing some research for a 3rd grade class on Betsy and the flag, and I sincerely thank you for one of the nicest sites I've ever visited.

Very Informative & colorful. I came to this homepage to demonstrate various sites on the Internet available for kids. The age group of the kids that are viewing this page are of Kindergarden age at Wm. Cobb Elementary School in S.F. CA. I am a member of The Alliance of Black Telecommunications Employees, Inc. who came together in '96 to wire the entire school. We spent the entire summer of '96 accomplishing this task and have since been working on donations from managers of AT&T to fund the other equipment required to complete connectivity (ie. router, dsu/csu, hubs and RJ45 cables). Today we are holding a ribbon cutting ceremony to commemorate the completion of this project.

All I needed was to know why the American flag is red, white and blue, as well as why it's configured the way it is. I searched the Library of Congress pages forever, but couldn't find out why. I found it so easily on your page. This is a great effort and tribute to Betsy Ross. Thank you so much.
