I love the information that is here my daughter who is 10 had to do a project and this really helped us alot with information. It was nice that I didn't have to pull alot of book out or go to the library. Thanks again.
Sue Phifield, Hatboro, Pa [01-01-1998]

It was very informative in helping to confirm some information that has been part of a family rumors over the years, that we are related to John Ross's family. However, he and Betsy Ross never had any children. It did confirm that information. I only wish I was able to find more information on John Ross and his family. Thank You.

The Iconoclasts & the United States Flag Commission insist that the story of Betsy (Griscom) Ross has no basis in fact. I have read "The Truth About the Betsy Ross Story" Robert Morris, ISBN 0-9601476-3-2. I'm convinced. My wife is a DAR and I am a SAR. Robert G.

My husband is active duty Navy stationed in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

What a treasure is freedom; the right to do what we ought to do. Thank you to all those who value the freedom our flag represents.

Betty Smith, Idaho Falls,Idaho [01-15-1998]

Thanks for this page, I'm sure that those visiting it can learn something. Many of our citizens do not know the flag laws. I am proud of our flag because it represents each and everyone of us. It stands for our country and who is the country? Its people. I just wish that on days to fly the flag at half staff, we could get everyone to do it, most private citizens think it only applies to federal government building and military post. So you see some at full staff and some at half staff. Just remember when you see our flag, please also think of the thousands that have died in the service of our country under our flag. LONG MAY IT WAVE.

Gary Ross Stoy, Lancaster Pennsylvania [01-27-1998]

I would be interested to know if anyone has a family tree for Betsy Ross. I have been told all my life that I am related to Betsy Ross on my paternal grandmother's side. I learned just today that apparently every first son in the tree was named Ross. I guess this makes sense since Ross was only her first husband's name.

I think it is really great that you have these kind of resources available for people like me who have a project to get done. I am doing my project on Betsy Ross. I am disappointed though that there isn't a whole lot of things like books and such to get my information from. I have to read a 100 page book on Betsy Ross which is part of the assignment and I won't be able to get that done because there isn't anything out there that can help me except people like you who put these excellent resouces of information up for everyone to see. If you can do anything to help me send me something to my e-mail address. Once again thank you. - Cathy Dusten.

Keep up the good work. You are not alone. Brig. Gen William Chase says it much better than I: "One of my proudest moments was standing shoulder to shoulder with General MacArthur during the raising of the American flag over Tokyo. General MacArthur, standing erect, gave General Eichelberger, 8th Army Commander, the following order in a firm clear voice: 'Have our country's flag unfurled and in the Tokyo sun, let it wave in full glory as a symbol of hope for the oppressed and as a harbinger of victory for the Right.' One of our veteran color sergeants then raised on the flag on the pole on top of our embassy. Our band played the "Star Spangled Banner," and all ranks saluted and looked at the flag as it slowly unfurled and climbed to the top. A thrilling moment. One I shall never forget."

In my second grade class, we have to choose a famous American. I got Betsy Ross. I like learning about her. I'm surprised that she had 3 husbands. I wondered if she had any children. At first I didn't know anything about her. The only thing I knew about her was that she made the flag.

Very interesting information on this web site. It's too bad more people do not understand what our country has been through, such as the fact that we have had two or three central banks in the past, all of which were rejected by the people once they knew the damage such cartels do. The Federal Reserve is no exception and needs to go the way of the other central banks if we are to follow the advice of our forefathers and keep applying the principles set forth in our Constitution.

Do you know who designed the flag? According to a document I have, it was Capt. Samuel C. Reid of the US Navy. Also do you have any information on John Ross, who his parents were or who any direct ancestors were. The reason I ask is I am supposedly related to both the designer and maker of our flag, but I haven't been able to tie them in to our family history. Thanx for any info or direction you have.

While there many problems in this country, there is no place I would rather be. People from all over are beating on our door to get in, people who are always downing this country should realize that in many other places they don't even have the right to do that. Long may the flag wave over this nation.

Wonderful information, attractive graphics, well laid out site. I am going to place a link to this site from mine in the near future when I make a list of helpful sites for school kids researching our American history. My site URL is listed below.

As a retired US Air Force Veteran(24 yrs) this page brought back many memories of my time in the service. Also brought a few tears for those that didn't make it back.. Have started a home page which will feature a section on POW/MIA's. May the Eagle soaring in the heavens continue to watch over you and guide you daily with peace, prayers, and gentle winds blowing love towards you.

I am 12 years old and in the 6th grade. In our school we have "Famous American Day". We have to choose a famous american and dress like them and do a presentation about them. I chose Betsy Ross because she is everywhere that you see the flag. I think it must have been a huge honor to be chosen to sew the country's flag. I really liked the tour of the house and if I ever get to go to visit Philadelphia I will go and visit it for real. thank you for the information on this page to help me do a good report.

Louise Mixson, Graceville, Florida [06-09-1998]

As I look back through the years, at the wars my ancestors have fought in, from Captain Robert Poage of Virginia, in the French & Indian War, through the American Revolution, the Spanish-British War here in Louisiana 1779, the War of 1812 both on the East Coast and the Battle of New Orleans, the US Civil war, the Mexican War, WWI and WWII (my father fought in both), I'm especially proud of their collective patriotism and courage. I think of these defenders of our country every time I see "Old Glory" flying freely in the breezes. Surly their knowing there were partiots supporting them, the likes of Betsy Ross, their families and friends, etc. gave them strentgh and courage to carry on.

Hi: I typed in 4th of July crafts and games on the infoseek search engine and found your homepage listed. I have printed the information. It will be very enlightening to my mentally retarded audult clients.They need to become aware of who sewed the first flag. I found the history of Besty very intereting as I do family history research on my own family lines. Keep up the good work. I am very impressed and learned things I didn't know especially about Besty!!! I am a thereapuetic recreation technician and am always looking for ideas for my education classes.

A wonderful page! As commanding officer of the Seventh Regiment of U.S. Infantry (1810-1850) Living History Association we own several stands of Colors. Of these we are very proud. Three are full scale reproductions of the National and Regimental Colors (6'x6"6" from 1808-1851.) We also have constructed, by hand, no machine work, a 26 star American Flag in the grand star pattern. It is 13' on the hoist and 21' on the fly. It has flown on the banks of the Rio Grande, over active duty Ft. Leavenworth, the Alamo and the Texas State house among others. We believe it is the largest hand sewn flag currently in use in the U.S. Over 700 man hours went into its construction. If anyone has any information to verify our claim it would be appreciated! Thank you again for making this wonderful page available. Sincerely yours, Steve Abolt 7th U.S.I. Living history Assoc.

I came here looking for an answer to a trivial question (from the radio). Although I didn't find the answer, I did see the directions for cutting a 5 point star out of paper and thought it would be a fun activity for the Girl Scout Brownie troop that I have. The trivial question, by the way, was "Besty Ross was the only human honored for this". Keep in mind that these type of questions from the radio station are pretty silly, but worth $100! I enjoyed reading about Besty Ross and the American flag! I also discovered a nice site for more history info ( that will be useful to my two children, if they ever need to look up historical info. Thanks for info!

I only wish that all young people were taught respect for the American Flage and the values and principles it stands for. My late Father-in-law was an American Legion member in our town. He had a flag route. On all Holidays, the American Legion members placed flags in front of business in our town. He had the downtown route. My youngest daughter was only 4 years old. She started riding with "grando" on his flag routes, as he picked up Flags. I can only imangine the conversation they had for the next 4 years. Molly now has such a respect for the flag it is unreal. She will tell anyone in a second how special that flag is and what it represents. I am so thankful that she had these lessons from her grandfather. It was a special bond in their relationship. Last year the man who now does the Downtown route was going to be out of town on Flag Day. He mentioned in front of Molly that the flags might not get put out. It seems the Boy Scout that had agreed to put! the flags out did not have truck. She promptly voluteered me to drive her dad's truck so those flag would be out. I loved it.

We found your website to be very helpful. My nine year old daughter was gathering information for a report on Betsy Ross for her church organization--AWANA She was trying to earn her patriotism badge and decided to write about Besty Ross. The house tour was the best part. We probably won't be able to come that far to see the house in person. So, your pictures were very helpful, as well.
Looraine Fields, Spring Texas [06-25-1998]

Loved your sight!! I used it to make a "worksheet" for my children. Using your site they have to 1) answer several questions 2) make a 5-pt star and 3) copy their favorite "flag" poem. Keeps them busy and earns them computer "game" time. Thanks for all your work!!

I love America and our beautiful flag. I like to fly it when I have company, or just for me, in addition to the traditional days. I thank God for our free country, and pray that we never have war on our shores. I wish people would be happy to be just Americans, and stop all this divisive garbage about what heritage of Americans they are. I notice they don't go back to those places and find out how awful it would be to live there. They are generally the dregs of society, and are mooches on welfare. I say, send them back where they came from, and be done with them.
Sara Lemon, Louisiana [06-27-1998]
