I am only 12 and I really learned something when I visited the Betsy Ross House Virtual Tour. It was very interesting and fun. I am going there this summer and I am very excited. Now I can prove to my friends that Betsy Ross was a real person!

FANTASTIC!!!
Nancy Ingham, capistrano beach, california [06-10-1997]

As a retired elementary/middle school teacher, I appreciate the availibility of educational sites such as this. Is there some type of a directory available of other historical sites? It would be an valuable asset to educators and particularly the vast numbers of home school parents, who would appreciate knowing about these excellent supplemental historical sites.
V G Whittlesey, Greensboro, NC, USA [06-10-1997]

Hi. We are a Core Knowledge Foundation School. We are thrilled to find information on Betsy on the Internet. I was sad that when we called about a tour of the Ross House, the person we talked to said that second grade would not be interested and besides we can't prove that Betsy made the first flag. Well, my second graders were fascinated by Betsy's story. We read "A Flag for Our Country" by Eve Spencer. The children said, "They can't prove she didn't make the flag either!"
Sandy Ferguson, Kenmore Elementary School, Elkton MD [06-10-1997]

I really liked your hint on cutting a 5-pointed star. They didn't teach that in education classes. I teach learning disabled children (middle and high school) they really appreciate it when I can take names they know and make something fun for them to do. I think that this next school year we'll all be Betsy Ross and make our own flags!
Laura Brown, Columbia, SC USA [06-11-1997]

Thank you for your Flag Etiquette page. It has informed me of very important rules for flying our flag. Great job!
Stephen Dunhom, Durham, NH [06-16-1997]

I don't know just how it is, but I have been told that Betsy Ross was one of our ancestors. This was supposed to be on my mothers side of the family. She was a Bartlett and if there is a connection it would probably be through one of her daughters or their children. The Bartletts lived in middle Tennessee. If I could know who her daughters married I might be able to get closer to establishing kin. Thanks

Jennifer L. Schultz, Manhattan, KS [06-17-1997]

As a native Philadelphian, I was extremely impressed by the photos and "virtual tour" of the Betsy Ross house. It's been many years since I last visited the house (in real life) and it made me feel very nostalgic for my home town. Wonderful work! Sincerely, Pat Martinez

Lacy J Rankin, Sebree, KY [06-30-1997]

I love the site! I'm all for history on the Net....I'm afraid it is one of the subjects that gets rushed over in our public schools. We should be proud of our country and its leaders. Thank God we had such enlightened fore-fathers. Thank God we have America today....
Eron, North Carolina, USA [06-30-1997]

it's great! I read a book about Betsy Ross, and this follows it up!

Excelent..... I like
Pablo D. Tavarez, Egg Harbor Twp, NJ, USA [06-30-1997]

Great web site. Refreshing! So many web sites are useless and disgusting junk. I grew up back east and as a child we always vacationed in Philly (my parents were born in So Philly) We always toured the historic cities, like Williamsburg Va, Harpers Ferry VA and Gettysburg PA, always tell my children about it. My aunt lived in Philly, near Penn Center where the statue of Wm Penn is, I remember touching the Liberty Bell, I understand the public cannot touch it anymore. Enjoyed your web site. [You are still allowed to touch the Bell -Webmaster]

Mary Mullis, Baltimore, MD 21229 [07-01-1997]

I like your Web page. It was very helpful to me in gathering information for a children's sermon for our 4th of July service. I liked your cyberthoughts and was glad to see so many positive attitudes about our flag and country. We need to teach our children the importance of history but not to take things out of history. Like God. It's amazing to hear some of the things our children are not being told about the founding of our country and the values and fundamentals that our government was founded upon. Thanks for having a site that offers so much in a fun way for our kids to learn about history and our country.
Dee Bowen, Georgia /USA [07-01-1997]

Bob Lyons, Sedona, AZ [07-01-1997]

Thank you for making all this information available. Most people nowdays do not know there are rules of behavior when dealing with our flag. I believe our local organizations could help by giving programs to their membership on these things. Thanks again for your site.

Andrew Moss, Cambridge, England, UK [07-03-1997]

Great stuff! The editor of the Fort Jackson newspaper (wheree I work) asked me to write a story about the flag, and gave me some materials. But I had more questions, and your site answered them. By the way, there is one other place where the Amercian flag always flies: the moon!

As a great, great, great (cont.!) niece of Betsy Ross, it is nice to see a website devoted to her. I learned a lot! Thanks!

Family rumor is that we are decended from Betsy Ross, But I can't find the missing link! Have an ancestor born about mid-1800's named Alexander Ross, but this life story shows no male children-maybe a daughter married another Ross? Any ideas?
Theresa Pinckney, Gales Ferry, CT [07-06-1997]

I was born in Philadelphia. It was nice to be "home" again for the 4th. Thank you.

Today is the Fourth of July and we had a discussion about the proper way to display the flag. We looked it up and found this page. Glad to know that we were correct in displaying the flags. Thank you for putting this page together - I bookmarked it for future reference. Displaying the flag is a great way for Americans to show their patriotism. Keep them flying!

Thanks for the very interesting articles. In an old trunk from a great-aunt, we have come across an American Flag with 42 stars. Since I know there are 50 States and for a long time in my life there were 48 states, when I saw the flag I just had to know when there were 42 states. Thanks to your site, I now even know how to fold the flag correctly, and much of the etiquette and rules relating to the American Flag. Fascinating!

My son is entering a "box parade" under the patriotic theme. Thank you for some interesting info. He is almost 6 years old and is the most patriotic person I've seen in a long time. His last name is Ross and our family tree has been traced back to Betsy & beyond. The box parade is part of Jasper's annual Strassenfest -- a celebration of our German heritage.

On July 4th 1987 I took the "Oath of Allegiance" on behalf of my then toddler daughter. The V.P. Fair Committee, on behalf of the City of St. Louis, gave my daughter an American flag welcoming her as a new citizen. This flag immediately became one of the families most prized possessions. We display it proudly every holiday.

I live in the town were, legend has it, the Stars and Stripes were first flown. During the time Washington was encamped here. Does anyone have any proof of where the flag was first unfurled? Our tradition tells us that the first flag did NOT have the stars in a circle....but rather the thirteen stars were in a more random manner.

I visited Philadelphia this summer with a graduate class from Immaculata College. The Revolution in the Delaware Valley. I want to return again....It's very inspiring to stand on the actual ground I've read & studied about all these years....We have different perspective out here in the West. Everything out here is "new"...Like only 100 years old!

Greetings from Southern California; I was doing research for my son's school, Redeemer Lutheran in Perris, CA, and I found your website. I am very impressed and was able to find pages of valuable information. I for one am very proud of the United States and our flag. I am second generation, and my 91 year old Father fought in World War II. Thank you for the use of your website and the vast information that I was able to download. I will be returning as more information is needed and I will also spread the word of your website location. Thank you, David K.

My homework was to find the first person to sew the American flag. My mom said "let's look on the internet". We knew we needed to search Philadelphia since so much history happened here. We searched for flag and found the Betsy Ross homepage and it told us that she sewed the first flag. We did not get a chance to visit the Betsy Ross home when we were in Philadelphia last year. But we will next time!

Every Halloween, we have a theme. This year we are going to dress as people from the American Revolution. Costumes, find the type of food for the potluck and have contests about the American Revolution. Betsy Ross of course was the first person picked by one of our developers. We are a software company. Because of our theme, everyone has been doing research on each of their selected person and it is amazing what we don't know about the American Revolution.

Sarah Singley, Skillman, NJ [10-04-1997]

We recently found a certificate which showed that my husbands great grandfather contributed to the Betsy Ross house. Although it has no monetary value, it holds a special place in our house because it connects our family roots to a small part of history, and preserving it for generations to come. The flag to me is a symbol of the freedom and the choices we have, that came from the sacrifices and hardwork of our forefathers.

cindy newton, newton, nc usa [10-11-1997]

I wrote a few comments on the guest register, for the virtual tour of The Betsy Ross House. I would like to add here, that both my wife and I are Veterans, and we feel very strongly about our country, our freedom, what it takes to preserve that freedom, and the Flag which flies so freely like every American. It truly breaks our heart, and then angers us, to no end, to see anyone desecrate our most cherished National Symbol. We truly feel that anyone showing disrespect for the Flag, is also honestly showing how they feel about themselves and the people around them. Your page dedicated to the rules of etiquette, and the law are very helpful. If Americans, and people not yet citizens of our country, would take the time to read this page, I'm sure quite a few will be very surprised, and I would be amazed if a lot of them didn't change their attitudes to the Flag, what it represents, and their handling of it. Thank You from the bottom of our hearts for your continuing efforts with this web-site. I only wish we could contribute more than our thoughts, but we are both disabled and money is a constant concern for us. We will pray for you, all Americans, and all peoples of the world, for a lasting and just peace in liberty. Gary & Carol Maki

Betsy wove a flag so dear
That it stirred passion so true;
The colors, so strong, fly all year,
Long live the red, white and blue!

Dare I say, dare I pray,
That the banner o'er every American crag
Will return, one fine day,
To Betsy's fine old flag!

Here's hoping that we return to the 13!

Dear Betsy Ross Homepage, I am 10 years old and in fifth grade. Our teacher had us pick a famous person to write a report about. I chose Betsy Ross but had trouble finding information about her. My dad helped me find your page on the Internet. I was very surprised at how much information there was. We had to dress up and pretend that we were our famous person for the whole school! I cut a five pointed star just like Betsy did. I have not found out my grade yet but I hope it's an "A". Thank you for helping me with my report. Someday maybe I can come and visit you and Betsy's house.
Ashley Harrington, Coarsegold, CA [11-10-1997]

I've been doing reseach on my genealogy and Betsy Ross happens to be a distant cousin. It was really nice to be able to find information on not only her accomplishments in life, but also about her family, marriages, children, and such. As a distant relative, I want to thank you for keeping her spirit alive and telling her story. However, it is a little disturbing to me that there are no pictures of her and no one is sure what she really looked like. Oh well, I guess there has to be some mystery when dealing with history. Thank you again, Melinda Mae Lamping 913 E. 11th Davies Rm 220 Ellensburg, WA 98926-7635

My teacher told the class that we are all to do an oral report having to do with something in History. One look at the flag and I knew I was going to do my report on Betsy Ross. She is a very interesting woman and I know I will enjoy doing my report on her. Have any INTERESTING info on her? I mean stuff like, "Did you know that Betsy Ross was born the first day of the week, first day of the month, first month of the year, 1752? (Sunday, Jan. 1, 1752)"

Hi. In our school we recently wrote a historical letter to Betsy Ross from George Washington asking her to make the flag. She agreed to. No one really knows what really happened, if she made it without anyone telling her to or did it because she had to either way it doesn't matter. Thanks for your time. Traci & Krista

lets stop our politicians from printing their pictures or slogans on the back of "flag postcards" they only end up littering the streets and we end up with pictures of our flag along side all the other garbage to be kicked about, walked on, spit on etc. Perhaps its just me but when I see this it makes me mad as hell.
