My mother's great-great grandmother was Mary Ann Ross, born on 11-20-1836 and married to Thomas Dickson in 1853. My mother has thought that she was related to Betsy Ross. Do you have any information that could tell me if there was a relation of Betsy's by that name? Thank you.

cathy hamberg [12-07-1999]

I haven't been on internet for long, but I am so glad I stumbled across your virtual tour of the Betsy Ross home. My father is a veteran of Korea where he served at Bloody Ridge and Heartbreak Ridge in the early 1950's. He received a Purple Heart and Oak Leaf Cluster for those battles. I know that our flag and the love of God kept him going during those perilous times. I have the utmost respect for all those who have fought to protect the flag and the American way of life. Thank you and God bless.
Marilyn Walker, West Virginia [12-07-1999]

I was thrilled to find so much information about Betsy Ross and the flag on line. I have recently received a new computer so this is new to me. Several years ago I set out to purchase a thirteen star betsy ross flag for our new home. It was at that time that I was told by a family member, who was amused at my interest in betsy, that I am directly related to her. Apparently the proof is in a bible belonging to a deceased uncle and cannot be located. I wonder if there is a way to find out for sure. Any advise? Last link is pgm Emma Ross Briden.

As a Girl Scout leader, Besty Ross provides another example of what women can acheive in this country. I was most impressed that she ran her own business throughout many hardships, and was able to hold her own around the men of that period. If Girl Scouts had exisited in those days, Besty would have been one!

Information about Betsy Ross is now part of the state-wide first grade curriculum. Do you have any age-appropriate books on Betsy Ross?

I'm a veteran, and proud to have served under the Flag of The United States of America. I am on the Americanism Committee of the Disabled American Veterans, Department of California, and have the unique oportunity to share my prtide with students on the local school system. If anyone out there has any further trivia or facts about the flag or Americanism, please share it with me.
Fred B. Phillips, Bakersfield, CA, U.S.A. [11-23-1999]

I enjoyed your web sight. I was looking for something spacific, and could not find it. On Veterans Day, I noticed here in the Virgin Islands, the politicians Saluted the American Flag as it passed. The territory's flag did not salute as it walked pass the reviewing stand. The politicians salutes were sloppy, and in my opinion disrespectful. A state or territory flag that does not salute to our flag (aka present arms), I feel is also disrespectful. Where would I go for a guide as to what is respectful to do with and around our "Old Glory." I am a daughter of an Army Major, Wife of a Marine, and a mother of a Marine and a Sailor. Through my life I have paid homage to our flag whenever she passed. It was always my pleasure to rise and place my hand accross my heart, or do whatever was appropriate at the given moment. I would like to find out where I can get a proper etiquette for our flag to share with our local mis-guided government. I didn't think it was proper for someone out of uniform to salute the flag. Maybe I'm wrong. Thank you for you web-sight.

Thank you for posting this great information. Not many people today even have respect for our flag. If they would just stop and think of all the lives that were lost during the wars so we could have our freedoms, they might have more respect for our flag. I believe all the schools should have an American Flag hanging in each of the school rooms and say the Pledge of Allegiance every morning. We used to do that. Now we aren't even teaching the kids how to respect our flag and even what it means. We need to get back to America, the land of the free and home of the brave. AMEN!!

I believe very strongly in what the flag - a mere symbol - represents. I don't become inflamed if someone seeks to deface or defame the flag. However, I am concerned when an American sees it in his mind to burn or deface his flag. Why not speak out your complaints. You might find someone who will agree with you. Seek truth and join with those who respect truth as much as they respect the flag. Symbolic denial is for the birds. Join the human race, don't try to deny its existence. Charlie

God Bless the memory of Betsy Ross! To deny her contribution is just mean-spirited. My grandfather died when I was 7 and I remember stories of his immigration and service with the Argylls in 1914-1919. I verified these stories with my father and her remembered them, too, though specific personal names of people he didn't know were lost. Oral tradition must count for something! Sola Scriptura is a prejudice of the Scribes who like to think they are wiser and more important than people like Besty who DID THE WORK!!!

We have several Auto Sales outlets in this city which are using the Flag as an advertising medium to sell cars. Is there any thing that I can do about this that would not be a cost to me. I am on a fixed income and unable to spend anything on matters that our government should be taking care of. I have already approached some of the perpretator but they refuse to stop the practice. In fact I had one of the managers, a Mike Rodriques of the Saturn Company tell me he don't care about the law.

I just would like to say that the american naional anthem is a joke i will quote "The land of the free". During the Cold war did the USA a "whitch hunt" against the communists and that is a evidence that the USA is not "the land of the free". And thats just a little bit of what "the land of the free" is about. Im a communist my self and it will take more than a thousand of atomic bombs to say that im not.

Thank you for a wonderful and useful web site. I would like to remind you that the symbolism of the colors chosen for the Betsy Ross flag are ancient and biblical. Red, white and blue are adopted from the British Union Jack and they represent: Red_The sacrifical blood of Christ White_Purity as in the Bride of Christ (the true chuch) Blue_Covenant, God's everlasting promise to true Israel (again the true Church) The number 13 incidentally represents "rebellion" and the battlefield arrangement of the 13 "tribes" (nations) of Israel. This arrangement, with the addition of Jacob's Cross (St. Andrew's Cross) was also adopted by the Confederate States of America. This will be more thoroughly explained in my web site, soon to be published, the FoxFire Files ( Thank you HHHinkle

To Staff at the Ross House: Thank you for putting this tour on line. I have been twice to the Betsy Ross House while touring on the east coast. I was there during my Jr. High School years in the late '60's and again during my honeymoon in May 1986. I enjoyed both visits. I even remember "clunking" my head on a beam as we came down the narrow stairs. (The stairs weren't meant for people who are over 6ft. 4". were they? :-)) Best Wishes to all at the Betsy Ross House and Thanks again for the memories on-line.

To Jason Mendez and Jenni Today, I attended a flag ceremony at my parents' church, honoring families of current and past veterans and celebrating new flags and poles for the American and Christian flags. We have a 19 year old daughter who has had strange colored hair before. Her views sometimes differ from ours, but we can agree to disagree and still love each other. We have an older daughter who was present with her 6 month old baby. It was great to have four generations present to celebrate love and honor for their country and its flag. My brother was honored as an Army veteran who served in Germany in the early 70's. He failed in college and was pulled into the military. My father was honored as a Marine veteran who served in World War II. I couldn't have been prouder of my entire family at that time. Thanks to my brother and my father, and those who served with them, we can live in a country where, even if we disagree with some of the things that happen, we still have the freedom to disagree. I could look at the things that are wrong with this country, or what is wrong with my family, but I also have the right (or freedom) to choose to look at what is right. Is the cup half empty or is it half full? I thank God for the blessings he has given me and the freedom that I have living in America, and for the flag that represents that freedom - one nation, under God, indivisible...

Thanks for a great web site. I was looking up information for a friend of mine, about the American Flag (Old Glory) and stumbled upon the site from a Link. It amazes me that so much information can be at your fingertips. I will visit again, because I have bookmarked your site. Keep getting the message out. Not all of us speak out when we should in defending whats right and wrong until our backs are against the wall. I guess thats what having freedom is all about.

Could you please tell me if the Mayor of a small city have the authority to order the flag flown at half mast for the death of a local resident. Also is there any code on flying the flag when a Police Officer is killed in the line of duty?
