I am in the US Navy and have been for for more than 20 years. My military reguriments tell me that while on active duty and in civilian clothes during the national anthem I should remove my head gear if wearing any and stand at attention facing the flag or if the flag is not visible face the music. Do not place my hand over my heart. Can you provide more information? At anyrate thanks for the page. V/r, Jim North

I recently was given a framed print. Upon closer examination I realized that it is a "thank you" from the American Flag House and Betsy Ross Memorial Association. It is a copy of the Weisgerber painting, the copyright is 1903 and it is numbered 30765. It was given to my great aunt, Margaret Violette Schmeltzer of Chester, PA. Can you give me additional information about this print? Thank you.

melissa, lake worth florida [04-16-2000]
What a steaming load of offal! Is it necessary to accuse anyone who prefers the written historical record (that Frances Hopkinson designed the flag) to questionable oral tradition of sexism and classism? That's pretty low, but I suppose at $2/head you need a 'bona fide' first to keep the herds coming. I was especially amused that you have a paragraph stating B. Ross' life was one of 'adversity', while at the same time noting her church pew was near Washington's (which was actually that of the Powel family, friends of the Washingtons). Those pews in Christ Church were rented by the year, and weren't cheap. Ross lived into her 80s at a time when the average life expectancy in the city was less than half that. That doesn't suggest 'adversity.' The assertion that Quakers can't lie was also highly amusing. And her husband did die in a munitions explosion- but tell me, what sort of Quaker guards a munitions factory, or designs a war banner, or gets kicked out of the Friends? This sort of 'history' is a joke! A former Philadelphia tour guide,

I Need Info 4 a book report at school
Kathleen Dunn, Dothan, AL [04-16-2000]
I give walking tours of Oakland City Hall to school groups and others. The American flag, as well as the state and city flag wave proudly on our recently renovated and retrofited city hall (first high rise municipal city hall built in the country - 1914). FEMA paid most of the $80 million cost to repair our city hall which suffered damaged in the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. Using base isolation technology (first existing landmark structure to employ this)our city hall can now withstand a 7.1 richter scale quake. For information on our tours - go to Oaklandnet.com/community for description of tours or call (510) 238-3234. Would like to hear from others involved in heritage tourism. Annalee Allen

It was interesting to see the actual inside of her house. I was amazed that it was so tiny. I hope some day that I can take a tour of it. I'm doing a book report on Betsy Ross so this was helpful.

I visited the Betsy Ross site for a school project. It was very helpful and informative.
Sara Jane Dunham, New Jersey [04-09-2000]
Never forget that you are an American. You can be from another country and you don't have to forget your Heritage but here you are an American which is a melting pot of many Nationalities. Saying that you are an Afro-America, German-American,ect. is redundant and sounds if you are not proud to be here in America which is still the greatest country in the world and if you think it isn't go to another country and see how many freedoms you have.

Last year in May we visited Philadelphia and were by Betsy Ross House on the Trolley Car Tour but they told us it was closed that day and we were only there that one day. I am very sorry we didn't get to go inside but touring it on the internet has been next best. Thank you for putting it on here.

I am the Curator for The Historical Museum at St. Gertrude's near Cottonwood, Idaho. I have been doing some research on flags, in particular, looking for a 43 star flag. I first had to determine if one existed. By searching your site I located the "flag timeline" and found the answer. The 43rd star was added in 1890 (the same year Idaho became a state). Several things puzzled me though, North and South Dakota, Montana and Washington were also commerated by this flag, however, Wyoming was not, even though it was added to the Union only 7 days later than Idaho, July 10, 1890. So, perhaps someone can answer these questions for me... why wasn't Wyoming included and does anyone know where we can locate a 43 star flag for addition to our collection? Please respond to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Martha and I present a program for museums, libraries, and schools Called the FReedom/Bells/Conncetion. The Liberty Bell rang (as the State House Bell) for many of our countries early clelbrations, like the unfurling of the flag. We would appreciate any ideas on new places where we can present this program and any info you may have on freedom especially as it related to because of one vote this was made possible (we speak English instead of German in the USA) Sincerely, Doug Martin

I was really interested in the Betsy Ross House and Betsy Ross Memorial Association as I have a certificate apparently issued to a donor who contributed to the preservation of the Historic House etc. It was issued in 1899 and was signed by four very prominent individuals, one of whom was John Quincy Adams. I feel privileged to own this certificate and to know the history behind it. Being from a country where one is not allowed to show their patriotism towards their flag, I am honored to be able to honor the American Flag.

Wondering about descendants of Betsy Ross.What was her ethnicity? My grgrgr Grandmother was named Martha Sophronia Etha Linda Ross. She was born in a covered wagon enroute to MN from MO., probably in the 1850's. She married George Shingledecker. I know nothing of her family. Please reply. Sincerely, Sonja Lende

Elana N. hansen, Kirkland, Washington, --------- U. S. A. !!!!!! [04-01-2000]
I am trying to find out how I am related to Betsy Ross. I have heard from three sources that she was related to canbys. One states she was a canby before she married(wrong by "her life"), another states that her grandfather was a Canby, and the last states that her grandson was a Canby. My family was part of the quakers(friends) in that area. I was wondering if I could get a pedigree of Betsy Ross. Thank You rich
Richard Canby, Cedar Rapids, Iowa [04-01-2000]
I am an artist. I've taken the liberty to paint a scene of a woman sewing the continental flag. It is quite colorful. At trhe present moment I have painted, Napoleon on Horseback, the blueboy, Pinky, Queen Bess, the spirit of 76', The Smiling Cavalier,Gen. Geotge S. Patton in front of a humoungus flag and Van Gough' Sunflowers. They are selling like hotcakes. The only difference is that, they have FROG HEADS on them. Betsy Ross (no disrespect intended) is the best one I've done yet. Thanks for the inspiration. Chuck

The information I found for my grandaughter's school project were wonderful, most informative and quite exciting to find out all the little tidbits you never knew about, such as when different states were added to the flag. She brought a trivia game she mad up about all of this information and played a game with her classmates. Her teacher was most impressed...I thank you very much. Nancy

The flag means my freedom and it stands for all the brave men and women that made our freedom possible. It really makes me mad when people down our flag, our country, and the military, if it wasn't for them we wouldn' have our freedom for any thing that we have. My father served in the Army National Guard for 30 1/2 years, my husband has been in the Army National Guard for 20 1/2 years, and our son has been in the Army National Guard for almost 3 years. We are proud to be Americans. We are Proud to be in a country that we can Serve our God.

For what purpose should the flag be flown at half-mast? What does it mean when the flag is not flying at the White House? When was the U.S. Flag first flown on the moon? Traditionally, if the flag touches the ground what must be done with it?

As the only city to have or had 4 living medal of honor recipients Mr. Crawford died yesterday, I should know the answer to my question but I don't. The question is, does anyone, civilian or business have the right to determine when a flag is flown half mast. In other words can you deem the death of a family member reason enough to display the flag at half staff? Is displaying a flag something that falls under first amendment?

Hi,I just wanted to say that Betsy Ross is a very talented lady and I really admire her. I believe that she gives women of all ages shapes and sizes a good name. For one thing I don't think I could have made a flag the way she did and that shows a lot of potential. And I think she was a very strong person to be able to go on with her life even after she lots her husband(s)and probably would be devastated with the fact that I lost someone like that. Thank you for taking the time out to read my letter. Sincerely, Dana Kirkland Rancho Alamitos High School,Class of 2001. March 15,2000.

A wonderful and informative website!! My daughter has a class project and there is so much info it will be hard to decide what to include! Thank you ! I think of Betsy Ross as being a real person who just happened to have some exciting experiences!( I still like to think she truly had a hand in how the first flag was made). I was dressed up as Betsy Ross for my fifth grade Halloween costume and as a kid I truly believed the legend...2 years later, I was able to wear the costume as part of our Nation's Bicentennial celebration in a parade in my hometown! My mother just so happened to save the costume,and is in perfect condition for my daughter(who is currently in 5th grade) to wear it as part of her class presentation! It sure has brought back fond elementary school memories for me and has added to my fifth grader's learning experience! The web surely has changed the way how students undestand our US history! Thank you again!

Am encouraged at the amount of intense and heart-felt interest in the Betsy Ross site and in the numerous flag discussions. Since March is Women's History Month, I'd like to hear more about the advancement of women like Betsy Ross who despite enourmous obstacle--i.e., death of two husbands, raising a family during time of conflict-- continued to contribute to their homes and their country. Let's not lose sight that Betsy was one of many women who made sacrifices for the good of our people and our country.

This is question rather than a comment. I saw the name of the Widow Lithgow frequently on this website, yet I was unable to find out who she was and how she was related to Besty Ross. Could you explain who she was?

Dear ????, Please tell me who I'm writing to. Anyway, I'm so happy to be in Betsy Ross's Guest Book. I did a whole report on her. I even dressed up like her for Halloween. I love her! She was the person who made the first American flag on order of George Washington. I sure learned a lot about her! Lauren

I was given the assignment to lecture on our National Colors. It took me 2 days to be able to log on the the site through ushistory.org but, I was glad I persisted. The information found within the pages of your site is wonderful, enriching and highly informative. I was able to use a great deal of the information for my lecture and I thank you for assembling it in to such an organized manner. My only question is: Why don't you post a copy of the painting by Charles William Peale from the series "Washington at the Battle of Princeton" showing the Betsy Ross flag on the site. I looked al over and couldn't find it anywhere. If you know where I can see it besides Princeton University, pleae let me know. Sincerely, Paul Schmitz

Just criusing the web, hoping to find a little information about my family history. Thank you!
Cheyenne Ross, Klamath Falls, Oregon [03-03-2000]
Thank you for all the great information on your web site. The apartment complex, where I live, has very poor flag etiquette. For example, they were flying the flag all night without proper lighting and during rain and windstorms. As a result the flag became ripped and tattered. I was able to refer them to your site so that they can learn how to properly display the Flag of the United States of America. Thanks again!

marion dooley, Wallkill, NY 12589 [03-03-2000]
When I first learned of Betsy Ross I was in grade school and loved the idea she made The Flag. I wanted to know more and the teacher moved on with the lesson, which didn't include anything more about B.R. I have always been interested in sewing, many years later I quilted a flag for my sister and brother. When I think of "our flag" I think of our history; religion,wars,freedom,love,and respect for all. So many times when I would think of a name to represent my business, it just never said an "image" it needed to be love and choices I get to make each day and came up with American Praire Quilts. Red, White and Blue it can and will continue to mean lots of different things to all the different people who live here. The first thing I think of is freedom,(Red)love,(White),faith(Blue). I think maybe Besty should have made it HEART-SHAPED, perhaps that would remind us all that; we should keep love in our hearts for all to where here "first", those who came to "settle",for those that came for what ever reason and those that continue to think this is a GREAT place to be. When we work together learn from the past and grow for the future of the country. When you see the flag it means give EVERYONE a choice and chance to be the BEST they can BE....brotherly love past it on!!!! I wish the best for each and everyone of our citizens, Happy 4th of July. :)
Rita G., Waterloo, Iowa [03-03-2000]
Long time residents of our town (near Pittsburgh) claim that the practice of flying the flag outside schoolhouses was started after the civil war by a former Union soldier. Jacob Friend reportedly started flying the flag daily outside the Elizabeth school. I have never seen any written documentation to support the story. Are there any flag historians that can support or refute the story?
