I thank God and my parents for being born in this great country of America. God has been so gracious to this country and she has been a blessing to the rest of the world. I pray that she remains faithful to God and obey His precepts the way our forefathers did.
Rev. Joseph Cortese, Bronx, New York [07-01-1998]
Thanks for this web page.....it is difficult to find information about Betsy Ross. I am glad you made this site. I am a teacher who would like to teach my students about her.
Heidi Blafer, LA [07-01-1998]
Wonderful! Thank you for this site...and the background information. I'm using this for a brief but hopefully inspiring speech in my Toastmasters Club in Sacramento on Monday (July 6).
Alan Smith, Sacramento, CA [07-01-1998]
It was great browsing this page. It had alot of good information of the American heritage and what the Flag stands for. All Americans should visit and get a bit of their history.
Anthony Mateo, Fresno, California [07-01-1998]
Nice page. I also make u.s flags. also custom flags.
carol k., fenton, michigan 48430 [07-01-1998]
I am researching Betsy Ross, who has been a lifelong heroine of mine since eighth-grade history in 1964. As a student of Mr. Hill's class at Harvey Lewis Jr. High School in San Diego, I asked if I could portray her in costume. Little did I know that 34 years later I would be preparing to portray her as a famous woman in the educational programs sponsored by Forest Lawn Memorial Park in the Hollywood Hills, California. If my script and presentation are approved, I will again portray her for school children and adults. What an honor! I also was able to share my love of her in 1993 when I brought my children to her home. My eight-year-old daughter loved the cat statue in the back yard and said that the visit to her home was the highlight of her trip to the East Coast. Can anyone help me find a replica of the original flag? I will need it as a prop for the presentation. I will also show the visitors how she made a perfect five-pointed star. Thank you so much for having so much information. I especially liked the thoroughness.
Deborah F. McIntosh, Newhall-Valencia-Santa Clarita California [07-01-1998]

How anyone could distroy the flag and get away with it, is beyond me. My father and other good and solid men and women fought and died for what it represents. It stands for our freedom and it is our "colors". (That is for those who are into the colors of their group) It is the symbol of who we are as a country.

I'VE NEVER SEEN BETSY'S HOUSE. IT WAS A FASCINATING TOUR. SHE OUTLIVED THREE HUSBAND'S? SHE MUST HAVE BEEN AN INCREDIBLE WOMAN.

The Fourth of July represents FREEDOM in a REAL free country! This may sound pollyannaish, but it IS the IDEAL that has been aspired to for the last 200+ years. We, THE PEOPLE, have let a bureaucratic nightmare run rampant over our world and our souls. For God's sake...for the sake of our children, STAND UP and take hold of the reigns of the "beast" while we still are able. This is YOUR country, not "The Government's".

Betsy Ross Is My Greats Grandma.... GOD BLESS AMERICA!
Jacquelyn Gale Wilson, Brunswick, Georgia, United States [07-04-1998]
I feel that regardless if Betsy made the flag or not shouldn't matter. What does matter is what "OLD GLORY" stands for. The men and boys who gave their lives to protect us, this land, and our loved ones, our Freedom and democracy of our Great Country. That's what "OLD GLORY" stands for. So, it doesn't really matter if Betsy Ross made the flag or not. All I know is that I am proud to be an AMERICAN. And PROUD of our COUNTRY. Sincerely
Linda Kunz, Walker, Louisiana [07-06-1998]
Wake Up America
Lord it breaks my heart / To see this country die. / I'd like to see America / Still be "one nation under God." / But it's sold out to corruption / And become a great big lie. / You meant great things,oh Lord, / For a people who'd follow you. / America began right, / But turned aside as she grew. / Her gods are pride and power now, / Her conscience is clothed with greed. / She thinks she's rich and almighty, / Lord,not seeing her nakedness or her need. / I pray, Lord God, / America will remember and repent, / And not blaspheme your Holy name / For the judgments you have sent. / I pray that she will / Realize you want her to awake / That you are now,in mercy,offering your hand. / Lord I know from your Word, / You'd love to heal this land. / I remember the words / To a song I oft times sang / It echoes in my heart you see, / Lord, for now it means so much more to me, / "America, America, / God shed His grace on thee..."

Thank you so much, for taking the time and trouble to post the information on flag etiquette and flag folding. I was shocked to find out that my wife of 30 years, had no idea of the proper way to handle, display and show respect for our flag. Your web site not helper her, but refreshed my memory from my old Boy Scout days, as well.
Vernie D. Kirkman, Orleans, IN 47452 [07-06-1998]
The flag is flying at our house, my son is in the Marine Corps. Had my daughter in the Air Force and my eldest son in the Air Force. We are a family that serves, and I am proud of them. May we enjoy the freedom of this 4th holiday.

Thanks for an interesting site for the fourth! And for the opportunity to wish America a Happy Birthday. I love my country and I love Americans...its just the politicians I have a problem with. Were celebrating today with friends, a barbecue and bluegrass music. Wishing everyone today a great holiday , fun, good company and a moments reflection on how great our country is.
VIRGINIA GUERTIN, fitchburg ma 01420 [07-06-1998]
I have always held a warm feeling for Betsy Ross since the day i learned of her in the first grade. Her story had touched me so deeply that I dressed as Betsy for Halloween the following year. I'm not sure if I enjoyed learning about a woman of history for a change or just realized the honor of creating the first flag. Either way, she is an important part of our history. Happy Birthday America!
Angela Antal, Texas [07-06-1998]
I read about your site in my local newspaper. As a person who works in education, this site will be very useful. I plan on sharing your site with those I work with.

I was born on Flag Day. I am a proud, flag-waving citizen. I have a certificate issued to my grandfather, who was among the original donors to assist in the efforts to preserve the Betsy Ross House. This framed certificate has been displayed in the homes of our family throughout the years. It has special meaning for me! Thank you for your efforts to maintain this bit of our history!
Alice Carnrite Teal, Marmora, NJ,USA [07-06-1998]

I thought your web site was very nice, I really liked it. Didn't know it was there until I read it in the newspaper today. It refreshed my memory, as it has been so long since I've been in school. Thank you I will pass the site onto my grandchildren so they may also injoy it. Thanks agin. Betty
Betty Wieser, Livermore, California [07-06-1998]

Great site. Very informative.
Joan Plantinga, San Jose, CA [07-06-1998]
Excellent site here. Not my first visit, but my first question. Would it be justified to fly the flag with the union down, to demonstrate your feel for a change, a sort of revolution. The government does things that everyone knows is wrong. Could this be a protest against these things? Thank you for your help. Once again, excellent site! P.S. One more question. Do you have any idea for the reasoning behind schools not teaching the role of God in the creation of this wonderful nation? Thank you, UA
United Americans, BA, MD, USA [07-06-1998]
I have found your site to be quite informative. I am pleased to see that material of this kind is available to add insight and to educate people as to the history surrounding our Nation's Colors, and what "OLD GLORY" represents. My thanks to you!

I guess showing ones patriotism and resepect for OUR flag in public isn't a cool thing to do anymor., But no matter where she flies, how big or how small, new, tattered or worn she always flies proud. Great site, thank you so very much.

Your web site promotes a feeling of patriotism with the splashes of red, white, and blue. I look for American History programs, especially during the time of the Revolutionary period, and have viewed your Betsy Ross section. I can almost hear John Phillip Sousa's "Stars and Stripes Forever" being performed by a great orchestra as I view your site. THANKS!

Debbie Davis, Midlothian, VA [07-08-1998]
I used this site to resolve a dispute between my two children, aged 7 and 9. The younger insisted that Betsy Ross was a legend and didn't actually sew the first flag. He said he'd seen a movie about it in school. The eldest insisted Betsy Ross was real. This dispute nearly came to blows. I appreciated being able to look it up on the Net!
Nancy Smith, Clifton, Virginia [07-08-1998]
Very nice web page.

Daniel E. A. Timm, Arlington, Virginia [07-08-1998]
Congratulations on a wonderfully put together presentation. I will love showing this to my granddaughter. I hope I can explain why this "Ross" cannot sew on a button and Betsy is making flags! Thank you for the tour, Elva Ross Jones

Never have a seen a more beautiful color than the Red, White and Blue. In my 16 years in U.S. Navy and all the years before and after I have Loved the National Ensign of the United States of America. Angered when I heard that congress said it was alright to burn the flag. I guess country music singer Merle Haggard said it best "Now that it's alright to burn the Bill of Rights guess nobody really needs old Uncle Sam" I DO! In my travels in the Navy I have been to places that hace really made me realize how much I have in this country, and how much it all really means to me. God Bless all those have fought and died for America, the Flag and to keep other Americans free. I believe that when our fore fathers were thinking of to represent our great country they came up with the Bald Eagle, Don't we now and haven't always soared above the rest of the world, After all we are the best. The Red, White and Blue (the colors that don't or never will run) I Love this country I! am very Proud to serve her. God Bless America. Thank you. Sincerely, PO2 Delbert D. Madison, USN

Cor Pechtl, North Dakota, USA [07-10-1998]
Beautiful web site! A few years ago, my husband and I were very fortunate to visit Philadelphia, and Betsy's home, so it's been a treat to "visit" again. Touring this site creates an irresistable urge to redecorate with red, white & blue! Now I'm beginning to wonder: is there a virtual tour of Ben's home, too? Thanks again!

Hi, I just finished the tour. I love the web, I can now get our flags flown and handled the right way. Six months ago I didn't have a clue. Sad but true, now I am getting the best information and am sharing all that I learn. What a great service to every American. I am planning several ceremonies for the yacht club and this information gives me everything I need. Thanks sooooo very much. Sail With Attitude! Harriette

Would a member of your staff email me as to the position of the 26 stars in the 1837 flag? Our village is celebrating its 160th birthday next month (August) and we plan to create a giant American flag cake (with cupcakes, to be sure!) to be shared by all who join in our weekend of celebration. I would like our flag to be historically accurate. Did they use a 6-7-6-7 arrangement, a 7-6-7-6, or did our forefathers get creative? Thanks in advance for your help.

My father, was the person who taught me to enjoy the american flag. I have ten siblings, and every year since I was born My father had hosted the annual 4th of July picnic to honor our independance. We have always flown a 13 star flag, and now that my father is gone, we continue the picnic, with over 100 family members in attandance, and aroung fifty misc. friends. So for at least 40 years that I know of The 13 star flag has been flying on the 4th at the same park thanks to a man born on July 1st, 1921, my Father Gene Hale. Thanks you for allowing me to comment.

I enjoyed listening to the views mentioned on C-SPAN2 regarding flag desecration. My interest was held for a long time and I couldn't shut the TV off even though it was past 11:00pm. (I'm a mom of 3 and one is a newborn, so I'm very tired and no rest during the night). I hope citizens of our country continue to preserve the true meaning of our Flag and respect the issues surrounding it. I will teach my children the importance of believing in and honoring something that means just about everything to a true American Citizen- for without it where would we be?

I'm a fifth grade teacher and teach about American History. I was impressed that your plans are for kindergarten students. Actually, fifth graders can use some of the same ideas. I did not have time to read all of the plans. Our school will be online for the first time this school term (which begins next week for us) and I plan to use these pages with my class. I already have the social studies lesson plans page marked on my personal list of favorites. I was really surprised to visit again and find such exciting information. Thank you.

I "appreciate" your time!

There is a lot of blood that was given so that we can still fly our colors. The eagle is our national bird, but it is a crime if you kill one. It should be a crime to burn our flag. It has more meaning than an eagle. Good luck to all flag supporters.

Being a native Philadelphian for the first 35 years of my life, I visited the Betsy Ross house only once. I now live in California and have been back "home" 5 times in the last 30 years. I have had the great pleasure to take my grandchildren (3) to visit the Betsy Ross House. I hope that I have given them a view into our history. No matter how far away you move or how long you are gone, you always remember "home" and all the history that helped Philadelphia become what it is today. It is with great pride that I call myself a native Philadelphian. If my company hadn't moved to California, I would still be living "home".

Today my wife and I were picking up my daughter up from school and there were two fourth graders taking down the flag and trying to fold it. They were having a hard time because they forgot how to fold it so they were laying it on the grown and I went over and showed them what to do and what not to do. I am a veteran so I do not like to see people or kids miss using the flag,also another veteran came over and thanked me for what I had done and told me she was going to talk to the principal about what had happened. Any way I just thought I would find some information about our flag and pass it on to the fourth graders and also show them what to do. Thank you for listening to me and if anyone can add some information about the flag I would welcome it thank you. Bob

First of all, this is a GREAT site. I visited Philly a few years ago and went to the Betsy Ross house and several other sights. It was enjoyable and interesting to visit then as it is now in this way. It makes me happy to know that invaluable pieces of history are preserved and made available for future generations. Secondly, to Rocci Hildum (07-06-98): Lighten up and thank God you live in this free country however flawed it was or still is!

Have visited Philadelphia with my grandchildren and been to the Betsy Ross house. My dad had told me that Betsy and George Ross were ancestors but unable to confirm. Have verified that Isaac Ross fought in the Revolution and is ancestor. Have not been able to confirm Isaac's parents of David & Experience. There may be a connection through that. Great story that some want to discredit.

Great Web Site! I wish there were as good a site for respect and courtesy for the National Anthem. I am appalled at the horrible renderings I hear even at national events. When the Flag Desecration ammendment comes up again, it should add musically desecrating the Star Spangled Banner to it as well. The Ross House is a place I missed on a research trip some years ago. I am glad to see it in cyberspace. Thank you.

Is my understanding that flag code has been changed and there is no longer a difference between the placement of the Flag of the United States of American when on a platform or on the floor level. The flag is always placed to its own right.

I think that the public schools should be teaching our children the Flag Etiquette. I have talked with some people and some didn't even know how to flod a flag. And some said that they they knew they taught this in boy scouts and girl scouts. I think we need to get more in debth with it in our public school system. My father served in the Army for 32 years, and he is the one that taught my brothers, sister and me. I work for our school here in Belt and I take our flag down every day, and another puts it up every morning, and I was shocked when I came in one day and another had taken it down for me and did not know how to fold it. I did show this person how. I asked around the school to find out if this is taught and it is not. I think it should be taught in every school. thank you flora b. edwards

My son is doing a report on the flag. One of the questions is "What is the regulation size of the American flag"? We have looked everywhere and cannot find one definitive answer. We have an army size, a marine size, a parade size. One person told us that it was 36" x 20" which does not fit the proportions required for the flag. Can you help?

My grandmother claims that we have family ties to Besty Ross. I'm trying to find if this is true. The only thing I have to go by is The names George Ross married Ida Myers. They had a child Virginia Worley Ross (b. 1889/d. 1929). If you have any infor on who Besty parents or any other trace to the Worley family are it would be greatly appreciated.

I am descendant of Ross family from Pennsylavania. Have strong reason to believe we are related to John Ross, Betsy's 1st husband. Am trying to pin down relationship between John & George Ross, whom I suppose was with Gen. Washington when they asked Betsy to make a flag. I've read 2 versions: that Washington needed a battle standard, or that the Continental Congress commisioned a flag & had George Ross, Robert Morse, & Washington as the flag committee. Any help there or or with Ross's descendants would be of help. Thanks. Dan Miller

Jaime, U.S. [12-12-1998]
personnally I find burning of the US flag repugnet, however it is a peice of cloth and if another american wants to show their displeasure of our goverment and those people in power by burning it I will be the first one to stand up to defend their right to do it. And dare any one to try to stop them. But as with every right there is responsiblity, when they are done with their statement of displeasure,ie burning the flag, I will have respond to my personnal disgust and kick their butts.

I was wondering if Betsy's flag is the flag in the painting "Washington Crossing the Delaware"? Or if it was not completed at the time he crossed the Delaware?

Debbie Temple, CT [12-14-1998]
I believe the flag means that the 13 strips meam the 13 colonies. The red for the blood Amercian shed fighting for independence. The white for purtiy and the blue for justice, perserance. It should be a honor for us to live here.

Hi! I came across this website by accident. But I'm so glad I did! I've had 4 brothers in the military, 4 in the Army and 1 Marine. They have served our Country well! And I am extremely proud of the them. Every time I heard patriotic songs and look at our American Flag and get so emotional... I can never hold back my tears from streaming down my face. I truly love the American Flag and admire Betsy Ross' masterpiece! God Bless America, now & forever!

I have been hosting a site that supports a petition site (www.resign.net) and have recently turned my attention to our great Constitution, and its impact on our daily lives. I love the flag, the pledge, and the freedom that its colors represent. I honor those who died and gave thier service willingly to protect those cherished freedoms that we often take for granted I feel that in these recent times (late 1998) we have seen an erosion of the basic fabric of our nation by the one elected and sworn to uphold the constitution. I hope and pray that the leaders of our great nation have the dedication and diligence to see to it that NO man ever succeeds in trampling our Constitution. I just read it again tonight, and it is a well crafted and excellent document that demands our alligence. I for one will strive to uphold it as a citizen who knows my rights and loves my freedoms. We have a great nation, but what will we the people allow to become of her? Long may she wave, may freedom reign supreme.

Great information for my son who needed to write a report something pertaining to colonial times in america before the 1800's. Even if he does not use it, I found it very interesting. Thank you.
