Historical flags on display at Town Hall - The Henrietta Elks Lodge presented the town (of Henrietta) with a Historical display of U. S. flags which will be permanently displayed in the town hall. I am currently designing a website for the Henrietta Historical Society and want to display the images, description and very brief description of the flags. I probably will include links to sites whose major subject/theme is the Flag. The site is currently on line on my private site until I get it designed and our permanent site assigned. The current location is http://members.aol.com/legendlou/index.html

I needed information to present a program on the life of Betsy Ross to a ladies group so I found this very nice reference and will use as much as possible. I think I'll let the ladies try their hand at cutting out a "5 pointed star" that Washington wanted -- and Betsy Ross solved the "problem". Good for her!!! I appreciate this information very much. Thank you. Feb. 15, 2000
Teresa Wood, Beaver, Oklahoma U.S.A. [02-16-2000]

"Betsy Ross was a gift from the Lord. She made dreams possible with that one flag of hers. She is very interesting to read up on. I feel very sorry for the deaths of her husband's and infant daughter's. How strong and courageous she must have been to put up with sorrow like that. If everyone had a little Betsy Ross in each of us, I think the world would be a little better place to live in."

Sharon MacQueen [02-07-2000]

Thanks for keeping America's Heritage alive and open to all. Our flag has gone through the years, had it's changes, and still flies strong. It represents the blood shed by American's to buy the freedom we hold so dear. It represents the nation's strengths in a God given land that gives all the right to worship freely without fear of reprisal or repression. It shows the purity of faith and will to stand for right and overcome wrong. It gives a field of blue for those who gave before to build a future for others dreams. It is our standard and profession that we pledge an allegiance to and will defend against all enemies foreign and domestic. It is shown as a testimony to our children of the nation and states joined in harmony and single desire. May it wave for all, for a standard to live by, and for our future! Keep up your site and thanks for your hard work. Super job!

clarence craft, corinth,ky. u.s.a. [01-26-2000]

I'm a descendant of Betsy Ross. I would love to get in touch with the branch of the Ross family that married into the Hutchison family of Utah around the end of the 19th century ... Are you out there?
Karen Johnson, Los Angeles, California [01-26-2000]

The red stripes represent blood shed by one for the benefit of another. The white represents pureness in the heart of people who do good things for others. The Blue background represents the universe, our future and the unlimitless possibilities of this nation. The Stars represent the reward that awaits all people of this nation and the world, for the universe is ours to have. The stars can increase in number, because we can never achieve too much or obtain too big a reward.

I am a 5th Grade student at Episcopal Day School in Lake Charles, Louisiana. I am looking for information on the life of Betsy Ross for a social studies project. I've selected to do a dairy (for one week during her life, preferably during the war). Any tips, pointers or information that you may have would be very helpful. Thank you

Dear Betsy Ross, Janurary 19,2000 Did you have any trouble making the first flag? What did you use to make it? A needle and thread,or a sewing machine? I hope you don't think I ask a lot of questions. I just like to learn about history. Well I have to go I have other things to learn like the Revolutionary war.

curious why it does not mention what type of material that betsy ross made the flag out of. industrial hemp was a big part of our hertiage and a big part of their times. it is also a new refound industry, that can assist america. i believe that you should make mention of the material in the story...

I thought the flag (the real one) was real cool on this site. Even though I didn't get any information on this site, I had a really cool experience. It was neat and I was definitely fascinated. Well, I really would like to come to Philidelphia and see the house in person, but maybe some other time when I am not so busy in the summer. I liked the site very much. I thank all the people who created it, they did a very good job inn creating it it was very nice!

I'm a NYC firefighter, and I want to know about the wearing of an American flag shoulder patch on the dress uniform. Which shoulder does the patch belong on, right or left? A guy I work with told me that the stars always go forward, but as I look at police officers wearing American flag shoulder patch, I notice that most of them wear the flag on their right shoulder w/ the stars to the rear. Thanks
