i beleive mistress ross was a great contributor to the history of both the south and the north. a fascinating and idealogical contribution to the historical artifact of the confederate,continental, and northern states or america. our founding fathers, which of whom, probably are not known by race creed national origin or political afflications were the creators an the beginning of a great nation an national organization that were preexisten to the formation of a prosperus world and one nationale under god. who wants war why should i kill my fellow brother or sister person unless i begged pleaded reasoned summoned or any other means of reasoning for peace. but the point is that if the try for succession of peace was not archieve and there was a shadow of doubt that reasoning would not prevail to know effect the i must do what must be done by all means necessary, together we stand divide we fall all people men women children infants prostestan jews gentiles catholic muslims and the people that hate people for their skin color party affliation or the ancestorial origins of the ancestors of our peoples is a detriment to society and the world as a whole. why should people hate the america, yankee-bristish, or klu klux klan flag people of all races put forth or lost their lives for the betterment of the countries. a lot of people associate the southern flag with racism and hatered. the present and forthcoming generations of the america society need to know the struggle that we people as a whole had to bring about a civilized and uniformial nation. on the subject of klu klanmanship if we were under white rule as they say why would the people come at night dressed in hoods and other protective garments and put a beating on someone. if the slavery factors or one hundred precent correct the the slave owners could have killed hung and/or handed any person or thing as they seen fit. who to say it was not peoples of all races and nationalities who did this treachous thing. why must one thing hold the other bac

I am an editor with The State newspaper (part of the Knight Ridder chain) in South Carolina. For an upcoming story to run on July 4th, I was wondering if you folks have any idea if any of Betsy Ross' descendants live nowadays in S.C., or how we might go about getting such information. My phone number is (803) 771-8404. Thank you for any help you may be able to provide.

i miss celebrating flag day. we always celebrated the day when i grew up in maryland. in california it isn't even mentioned. we celebrate cinco de mayo but no may day or flag day. this is a sad day indeed.

LINDA FRYHOVER [06-28-2001]

Despite all the information you have on the flag, it doesn't answer my question: Can the Flag be washed & if so, is there any particular way to do it? We only put our Flag out for holdays, but since we've been doing this for over 20 years, it's starting to look a little dull. I would appreciate an answer before the 4th. Thanks.
Toni Campos , Los Angeles, CA [06-28-2001]

I love our country and I have a lot of respect for our flag, infact I am the Flag Police here, where I work and sometimes around the area. I will let people know what the rules of the flag are and I will let them know when they are not following them. What can I say, I'm proud to be an American!

I have a very strong love for the flag of our country. I am currently working on a display for my backyard that would have ALL of the flags from our history flying proudly. If you know of a place where I can get all of the different flags (for as low a price as possible) please let me know. Thank you.

My husband is a very patriotic man who dabbles in poetry & song writing as a means of reflecting his feelings and as a hobby. He recently wrote this in observance of " Flag Day "

" JUST A PIECE OF CLOTH "
Not long a go I took my wife to a fabric store and I was just hanging around while she shopped when I overheard a nice young couple talking to a sales clerk. They wanted something bright to cover a foot stool in the kids room. The clerk was showing them a bolt of cloth with multiple patterns of the stars & stripes. I said, " Excuse me young lady, you're not going to put this on a foot stool are you? " She responded saying , " Why not; it's only a piece of cloth. " I said,

I'm glad you asked the question
Cause you're too young to know
How many lives have been lost
So you could be free to come and go.

Now I don't hold it against you
but I don't think you realize
The blood and sweat and honor
That's built into those stars and stripes.

Now I know I'm buttn' in so please
bear with me little girl
While I speak about the freedom
They represent throughout the world.

I too am fond of bright colors
and you can have this pattern for a few cents
But there's no way to place a value
On what it represents.

In battles on countless beaches
In the air and on the sea
These stars and stripes have waved
And helped to keep us free.

It took countless acts of courage
To make the idea behind them real
Yes, " It's more than a piece of cloth. "
So thanks for listening to the way I feel.

I am having a discussion about the amount of stars on the Flag today. I heard on the Jay Leno show that there were 52 stars on the Flag. Other people are argueing that there are only 50. Please tell me which is correct. I know we have to other territories, the Virgin Island and Purto Rico. Are they considered states and do they have stars? Thank you very much and I will appreciate your help

I have a picture of Betsy Ross etc with the flag and an inscription indicating it was presented to my grandfather Can you tell me about it. It probably was early 1900's or late 1800's. It has a seal with a number on it but cannot read words. Thanks

I have a beautiful print of 4 women dressed in revoluntion area clothing sewing a 13 star flag in the flag room. I know the print is at least 60 years old as it has been in the family that long. Any information will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

We are descendants of Betsy Ross. My mother's family name is Ross. We would like to know the exact genealogy. If someone could help us out, we'd appreciate it.
Carol H. Calhoun , Locust Grove, GA [06-14-2001]

I just typed in my name to see what would pop up with it. Thanks for keeping such a neat and interesting site with all the information. Stories passed down by generations hold more truth than our official records in many instances. I found this to be true as I studied the geneology of my mom's side of the family. Keep up the good work. By the way, my Mom thought it was cute to name me this. I have 5 older sisters and asked her why she did not come up with "cute" sooner!

Annett Borufka , Beyersdorf-Germany [06-14-2001]

My father bought me a flag today (6/12/01) and I found it inside my house upon coming home from work. I have owned this house for just over a year, and receiving an American flag from my father, just in time for Flag Day, has to be one of the more simple, but meaningful moments in my life. Display the flag PROPERLY on my house was my first concern, and this site's outline of the rules governing such display has brought tears to my eyes. Thank you.

HELLO, cool website
Mickey, Succasunna NJ ,USA [05-18-2001]

This page is great for me because I am doing a biography on a person in the American Revolution. I decided to do Betsy Ross because the other people we had a choice to choose from were all the really hard ones that no one has even heard of. Our teacher, mr.Fayarchuk, is telling us to do this project and we've been doing a bunch stuff having to do with the American Revolution. I really think that this page is great for children my age. ;liz

It started out as a simple American History project at school, but now I realize how big an impact Miss Elizabeth G. Ross on us. I'm sure I wouldn't be nearly as active in life and as ambitious if it weren't for Miss Ross.

I think it is greatbackground history. Think about what would happen if we had no flags. Francis Scoot Key would have never wote that National antheme if it wasn't for him seeing the flag waving. if we didn't have a flag they wouldn't have known who won because they would have not seen a flag if we didn't have one. so I can say our flag is a great part of history thanks to Betsy Ross

I am going to the Betsy ross house soon for my feild trip. The house looked really kool on the website and I can't wait to see the house in real life. Betsy Ross is a very important person and she also did a lot of very important things for our history. I mean she sewed our first flag, didn't she?! I now want to sew a flag but I can't sew yet. I would love to sew the first flag in the whole nation! I think it is very exciting to visit a house that a famous person lived in. Betsy Ross has made a very important mark in history. Some day I hope to be like her and make history, and be remembered forever. I think of all the people to choose from to sew the flag I am glad they picked her to do it. thanks for listening, bye!!!

morgan(Choppy_Surf), honor michigan [04-24-2001]

National Museum of American History historian Lonn Taylor talks about the evidence regarding who made the Star-Spangled Banner. The flags for Fort McHenry were delivered on Aug. 19, 1813. As indicated in the receipt for payment, on Oct. 27, 1813, Mary Pickersgill was paid $405.90 for the large flag and $168.54 for the smaller one. The receipt for payment was signed for Mary Pickersgill by her niece, Eliza Young, and endorsed on the reverse by Major Armistead. It is in the collection of the Star-Spangled Banner Flag House in Baltimore, Md. Mary Pickersgill's 13-year old daughter, Caroline, along with her mother, Rebecca Young, and her nieces Eliza and Margaret Young, are believed to have helped make the flag. When George Armistead's daughter, Georgiana Armistead Appleton was planning to lend the Star-Spangled Banner to the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial Exposition, Caroline Pickersgill Purdy wrote to Georgiana recalling the hours that she and her mother had spent more than sixty years earlier making the enormous flag.

I'm a 2nd grade teacher. In social studies right now we are studying "Celebrating America." I've always included Betsy Ross in my plans and this year I would like to do a play about her. Has anyone heard of a play for elementary students on the life of Betsy Ross?

I'm 11 and I'm very impressed by Betsy. She's a very determand woman and she lived to an old age for living back then. I hope more people belive that this story is factual and will remember it. Betsy Ross could be any girls idol. It was hard back then and she did a wonderful job of living it!

You will never find more patriotic Americans than my husband and myself. My husband is a World War II veteran. He was in the invasion of Normandy, Battle of the Bulge, Ardennes Forest, his Company liberated Dachau Concentration Camp plus much more. He was in Patton's Third Army and saw General Patton twice. He cared very deeply for General Patton and thinks he was a great warrior. I am very concerned about today's youth and their apathy about our country and our flag. Some of our political leaders in high places have not helped because of their greed and moral character. I pray that the political leaders will try to reactivate some of the patriotism in our country so that the younger generation can see why so many Americans suffered and died for their liberties today. GOD BLESS AMERICA - - - - I PRAY!
