I am a Brownie Girl Scout! I was Homeschooled Kindergarten and Mom was my Leader. I did want to join a troop at my grade school for first grade except I was ill and not able to make a lot of the meetings. Mom still helped me by being my leader...Thanks to Girl Scouts for letting children be individuals and letting my Mom be a Leader to help me. I am visiting this web sight for additional resources for the Wave the Flag Try-It. Thanks for the research. United We Stand. GOD BLESS YOU AND AMERICA!

I had a history project on Besty Ross, and all I could find was you guys. You saved my grade. From the information about Besty, to the information about the flag, to the flag picture gallery, you really helped me. The notes about the symbolization of the red, white and blue and why the stars were in a circle also helped me. I hope to be able to tell you my grade( hopefully good) very soon. I will also include a poem if I can think of a rhyme for Ross, Claypoole, Ashburn, and Griscom. You guys are lifesavers!!! Your hard work and dedication is greatly appreciated, but couldn't you have included the names of her 16 brothers and sisters? Thank you anyway!

Kayla Sell, Kiel, WI [03-21-2002]

I am writing to you because of a situation that has occurred in the church that I attend. A couple years ago members of the congregation expressed their displeasure of having the American flag on the alter or even in front of the congregation during services. I and many other military Venetians expressed our concerns that the American Flag was being removed from its place of honor. After much discussion a vote was taken and the results was that the Flags would be placed in the back of the congregation. I have read the rules an regulations on how to display the flag on your website and rule 12 and 13 state 12. When displayed from a staff in a church or public auditorium on a podium, the flag of the United States of America should hold the position of superior prominence, in advance of the audience, and in the position of honor at the clergyman's or speaker's right as he faces the audience. Any other flag so displayed should be placed on the left of the clergyman or speaker (to the right of the audience). 13. When displayed from a staff in a church or public auditorium off the podium, custom and not the flag code hold that the flag of the United States of America should hold the position of superior prominence as part of the audience, in the position of honor at the audience's right. So my question is should the flags be in front of the congregation or is it acceptable to have the flags to the congregation's back. I would appriate a response to this question so that I could instruct the pastor of the proper way to display our flags in the church.

I am suppose to dress like her, what should I wear? Could you tell me when she was born? When did she die? Did she play an instrument? How old was she when she began sewing? Did she teach her daughters how to sew? How old were her daughters when she made the flag and how was she? Thank you very much for your time. Katelyn

lyndsay glohe, n.s.w australia [03-21-2002]

I am doing research on Besty Ross and next week my class is going to make flags wich have been the United States Flags intill a new state had been added. I think Besty Ross was a very brave and great person, because she was brave enough to stand up to George Washington and make some suggustions to George Washington and run a store by herself after her husband died at war. I look up to her a lot and want to do somthing importing like that when I grow up, so it will be rembered through out the future in the United States of America. Sincerely, Kelley G. P.S. I really like history by the way. A LOT!!!!
Kelley, Manchester,IA of USA [03-21-2002]

I visited Philadelphia with my husband and my parents in November and had a wonderful time. The Betsy Ross house was a part of our tour and we enjoyed walking through the house. I have a question about the gift there any way to order a souvenir online and have it shipped? My father saw a shop glass he liked, but didn't have time to buy it. I was wondering if I could order it since I don't know when we will get back to PA.

I'm researching for a friend who is in possession of a small American hand made silk flag, which has been passed down through the family. The flag has ink writing on the end which says: "Made by Sarah M. Wilson. Great grand daughter of Betsy Ross"(on front).East Wing of Independence Hall Philadelphia June 14 1910"(on back). As a New Zealander I've found out so much interesting history about your country, flag and Betsy Ross. Can't track down any info on Sarah Wilson though or whether flag day in 1910 had any significance.Would this flag have been one of many made for tourists? Any help would be great, Thanks, Shirley.NZ.

I visited the Ross house in January 1990. I was born in Altoona and lived in Hollidaysburg (Blair County) PA. Moved to Los Angeles in 1973. Still have relatives living in Havertown. As a child my grandmother and grandfather (who raised me) would take be to the Wanamaker store to hear the pipe organ. I remember Horn & Hardocks, Strawberry and Clothier. Brings back a lot of child-hood memories. One I am ashamed of is when I took a coin off of Ben Franklins grave. Don't know what ever happened to it! You have a wonderful and beautiful city and I do miss those Eastern states so full of history. Thank you. D. R. Gray

Erin Fenical, Sedro Woolley, WA [03-03-2002]

I came to this site to find the rules of handling a flag. I indeed found them thank you very much. I saw something very disturbing to me today. I was walking up to the Miami County Court House at 3:30pm, I saw a man taking douwn the flag. It was suppended in his armpit and hanging on the ground, while he unhooked it from the rope. Then he took it and rolled it up into a bundle (kind of like it you can't fold a fitted sheet)! I couldn't belive it! He walked inside. I thought well maybe know one could of helped this man fold the flag properly today. I then turn the corner of the courtyard and saw a different man doing the samething! After everything we have been through! I learned how to take down the flag and all rules of handling and folding when I was in the 4th grade. I am 24 now and the flag means something to me. I plan on telling the city and the county about this. It is the county seat. At 3:30pm on a Wensday people are getting of work, school kids are on there way home! If we do not show the respect for the flag infront of them, how can we expect them to know how important it is. If anyone knows anything eles I can do to make sure our flag is taking care of properly at our courthouses, please email me
Terra Bulle, Englewood, Ohio USA [03-03-2002]

I wish I could tell Betsy that I am really glad she made the flag the way she did instead of having some boring old flag. She had a great way with seaming. In our Washington National Museum they have lots of her work in the American History section and they are absolutley gorgoues( forgive me if I spell some things wrong I'm aterrible speller.)Well this is a great site because I am doing a report on Betsy and I have lots of info from this site.

Your website on Betsy Ross is wonderful.My son is in the second grade and was given an assignment with a list of famous Americans to do. I am so proud of him as he chose Betsy Ross to do his report on. When I asked him why her, he stated because she made the first flag & the flag is very important to our country. I then asked him if he could tell me what the flag stood for to him & he replied-freedom to be who you want to be most of all, no matter what race or religion and it also stands for great pride because we live in the most wonderful country in the world. Being only a second grader I am very proud of him that he can identify with the flag as it standing for that type of symbolizism. When the World Trade Center bombings happened I let him watch & told him what the war is about in Afghanistan & being very religious his outake on it was very eyeopening coming from an 8 year old when he says;that's not right to be able to be the religion you want to be or have the freedom to think your own thoughts as long as they are good ones. Also after long searching he wanted a picture of what Betsy Ross looked like and you gave him that privelege. Your site is wonderful and he & I also learned so much more about her than I thought I knew. We are proud to be Americans! Phyllis and Andrew.

Hi: I'm looking for some facts about Betsy for my daughter Laura Chester-Helme, who is working on a genealogy project. She and her two older sisters and brother are decendents of Betsy through their father's mother. We're not sure just how the lineage goes, but their grandmother's name was Emilie Sarah Miller Chester and she was a decendent of Betsy through her mother, who was a Ross. Thanks for making this website such a pleasure to visit. I hope to visit the homestead someday with my children. Sincerely, Judy Chester

Delaney is a 5th grade student of Valley Mills Elementary School in Indianapolis. We visited this website to obtain information about Betsy Ross. Delaney will be dressing up in a period costume to make her presentation about Mrs. Ross. The one thing we were most excited about was the information about how to make the 5 pointed star with one snip of the scissors. Delaney has practiced and practiced it so that she can include the demonstration as part of her presentation! Thank you so much for this wonderfun information! We think it will be the highlight of her report and hopefully will awe her schoolmates as much as Mrs. Ross awed the committee! Sincerely, Janis Wright (Delaney's aunt)

I would like a picture of the Betsy Ross flag. I am making a series of flags (for personal use for my grandchildren) and I think it is important that this particular flag be included. I am a seamstress. We visited the Betsy Ross home on a trip about 4 yearsago. If I just had a picture I could figure out the deminsions. (And I remember how to cut the 5 pointed star from elementary school. HaHa) Thanks for your response. If you just scanned a picture and sent it to me I could print the copy and get my series complete. Trivia: I met my husband at Ole Miss so I have made the Rebel flag (Confiderate). Also stitched the flag with 48 stars (I have embroidery machine). Thanks for your listening to my request. Sincerely, Virginia

There are a number of flags flying from merchants here in town that all have ragged edges. What constitutes "too much" wear, as in the rule that flags should be in good repair, but can be flown until they are well worn? I am reluctant to send a letter to the editor of our daily paper complaining about raggedy edges when these might be acceptable after all. In other words, do raggedy edges count as signs that the flag should be destroyed and replaced, or what? Thanks.

I was wondering if anything is known about the actual dimensions and construction of the original Betsy Ross flag. For example, what material was it made of? What was it's size? Did it have sewn stars or hand-painted stars? Did it have cotton ties to attach to a pole, or did it have a sleeve or brass grommets? Any information, including educated guesses, would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Kurt Kohtz

Also, we are looking for a picture of the flag sewn by Betsy Ross, so that we may include it in her report, hopefully a full page picture (8 1/2 by 11) is such a picture available?

Hello, Every year in the fourth grade we dress up as famois people who lived a long time ago. I chose Betsy Ross. I chose her because of all the hard work she put into the flag and then it got destoyed by Afganustan and in all the other battils. Sincerly, Elizabeth Marie Palmer

I was born and raised in philly and I remember those cool class trips to te Betsy Ross house.I was just checking if philadelphia had a website and proud to see one and even if I'm hours away from there I was sent back to one the coolest time in my life. I loved going to the Betsy Ross house on my class trips and looked forward to it every year.So thankyou for giving me the opportunity to see it even if its not quite the same it still was nice.

Hi. Just thought I would sign my name and write a little note telling you that my middle name is Ross. I am 11 years old. I was named after Betsy Ross, who is an ancestor of mine. My grandfather lives in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. His grandfather was Ross Samuel Oliver Currie, he had a son named Ross, my mom remembers him, they, as would guess were named after and are also a decendants of Betsy Ross. My grandfather from Fredericton has all of the info supporting this ie. original documents from when our decendants immigrated to Canada from the U. S.

The history of the flag and Betsy Ross are contradictory to that I have ever read. First of all I have researched this subject through many U. S. History books and there is no mention of Betsy Ross anywhere. The affidavid you have is heresay of accounts almost 100 years after she supposedly existed or you say the flag was first flown. According to World Book of Facts/Almanac Congress gave no hint as to the designer of the flag and there is no documentation of George Washinton ever meeting with Betsy Ross. The almanac also states that the first flag was not delivered to Washington or flown at the Capitol until 1783. Yet you say she sewed the flag before that? Can you please explain? there are also so many violations on flag ettiquette these days that I doo not understand. For example why was the U. S. flag carried horizontally into the stadium during the baseball World Series with the president present? Again it was carried the same manner during the Macy Street Christmas Parade and in a few days it has been approved to be carried into the opening ceremony of the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics Feb. 9th. I believe we are hypocrytical in one case we are against flag burning and yet it is being desecrated in front of the highest official of the U. S. the President.

Mandy Koch, alburtis, pa, usa [02-07-2002]

We had a school project called the Nancy Eresman Expo and were allowed to enter anything we wanted as long as we did it ourselves. Because of what happened on September 11th, I wanted to show my patriotism, so I made a poster of the flag. My grandpa has a replica of the Betsy Ross flag, which he gave my mom to hang outside. I thought it would be a good idea to use this flag since it really means a lot to my grandpa. He was in WW2 and tells stories about it all the time. Because I love my grandpa very much, I thought it would be a good tribute to him to make my poster using the flag that he loves so much.

He wants to become an american citizen and in showing his patriotic spirit had the American flag decritively inside his jacket. I thought it was great. Should this rule be changed?

Is there something I can get that would show beyond a reasonable doubt that she did do this wonderful feat? Chelsea

Hi my name is Kendra. I am 8yrs. old with Brownie troop 517. I like the Wave the Flag Try-It. I was sad when I saw the news about New York city. I asked my Mom and Dad if we could make a flag for my class. It is real big and was a lot of fun to make. Mom painted our hands white for the stars and Dad showed us where to put them. My teacher Mrs. Hopkins and my principle Ms. Tobe helped too. Now the class flag hangs in the gym. So everyone can see it. And I helped Mom make red, white and blue ribbon pins for everyone in the class because we couldn't all take the flag home. I wear mine on my coat everyday.

God bless America. Avenge New York / the Pentagon and all of those on the air craft. Thank you for the wonderful informationn on our flag.To me our flag represents us, our country and everthing that we are and what we stand for.It reminds me of all the Americans that have died for our freedon and the liberty that we take for granted. I love this country and all that it stands for, yes the good as well as the bad. No nation is perfect but ours is the best so I say again, GOD bless this country of ours and all the love her.

Hi, I'm Myles. I am a direct relation to Betsy Ross through my mothers side of the family and am proud to say so! I would like to know if you could send me a family tree? If you can, my address is: 6 peppercorn lane Haverhill, Mass 01830

A terrific website not only for teachers and students, but any American who wants to know more about their history! This is so important, especially in the times in which we now live. We are all flying flags at our homes, but many people know so little about it. THANKS for this website!

Betsy Aldrich [01-25-2002]

Thanks for the great information. My 9-year-old daughter sought out the information for a "timeline" on Betsy Ross to accompany a book report on Besty's childhood. Your information was excellent. We're often asked if we're related to Betsy Ross, but since she didn't have any Ross children, this is unlikely. We do descend from a John Ross, but we understand that he was born in Yorkshire, England (5 May 1830). Many thanks, -- Mike

This is a great place to look at US history, I was looking for a famous quote for English because we were writing an essay about the American Flag and I had to go to Baptism Class and I asked my dad to look for a quote for me about the flag and when I got home he did have one, he had MANY, I was shocked to see how many he could find because when I went on i went to a lot of different web sites, and I didn't really give me the information I needed.

I have inherited a US Flag with 45 stars and I am wondering what the value of the flag is as it is about 8ft by 5ft. Can you estimate the value and how we can maintain it, that is, wash it, iron it and how to mount it. Please reply.
Glenn Herman, Toronto, Ontario, Canada [01-25-2002]

Being the "tail ender" of Generation X I often took advantage of this country and all that we have. Yes, the government has its quirks as so velemently put by a writer before me and yes there is much unnecessary poverty and discrimination in this country but we have to work together as a community to solve these issues and work on TODAY instead of what happened hundreds of years ago. We must rise above the hatred and teach our children that all people are equal. I know that in 50 years when I'm 80 I will not forget the horror of September 11th nor will I also forget pride (that I had never felt before and still feel today and will ALWAYS feel) when I see this country coming together, working together and raising its flag. Its symbol of hope and peace. Thank you Betsy Ross.

All Americans should at least know who Betsy Ross is. I teach 8th grade science and most of my students did not know who Betsy Ross was. It is sad that children of this generation are not taught much about our hertiage! Thank you.

My daughter, Carly has been asked to represent someone famous in American History. It is a day to celebrate the freedom that our country has given to us. Many of the students will be dressing as famous characters. Carly will be in full costume of Betsy Ross, complete with a flag being sewn in the original fashion. I have found that this website to very informative with lots of history and photos! Thank you so much for all you have done to promote Patriotism. I am sure my daughter could be Betsy Ross herself, when we are finished reading all the links. Our Patriotism has been renewed. I, 38, have never lived through an event such as this. And, I am watching the youth of the United States of America become proud and grateful citizens. As I watch young children, and know they are living in a crucial time for the U.S., I see them as the youths of yesterday; they are the young George Washingtons, Abraham Lincolns, and even a seamstress, Betsy Ross. They are our hope and our future, and this renewed patriotism for myself has inspired me to make sure I do all I can to ensure freedom and justice to those in the world around me.

I'm 62 years old, and I still get a lump in my throat when I see our flag on parade. I served over 10 years in the military, and support the flag desecration amendment to the U. S. Constitution. No other object has the significance to other nations that our flag has. To me, it symbolizes this nation, and all that we hold dear. God Bless America!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading your informative history of Betsy Ross, the American flag, and other data on your web pages. All I can remember about these subjects is what we learned in school, and that consisted of 'Betsy Ross sewed the American flag'...the end. Thanks for a more detailed story about these subjects.

I have enjoyed your website tremendously!! I portray Betsy Ross at the American Village in Ala. I was on the cover of the DAR magazine, American Spirit as Betsy Ross. I consider it an honor to be able to portray her and teach children what a true heroine she was. I find people of all ages are fascinated by her life story.

I have a large copy of the flag picture, and a Betsy Ross Foundation certificate that belonged to my Great-grandfather Charles Henderson Berry, a Civil War Vet. It is series N certificate #23885 issued in 1917. He was a resident of the Ohio Soldiers and Sailors Home at the time and died in 1925 in Springfield, Ohio.

I really did not think much of the flag and its meaning until September 11, 2001 when the airplanes flew into the wtc towers in New York City. Now, I plan to learn more about the history of the flag such as Betsy Ross and our country, and the meaning of patriotism and war.

I think the flag brings us together in times of trouble. We have to remember what it stands for. It stands for freedom, liberty,justice and pursiut of happiness. No terrorist or anyone else (including Bin Laden) can take all that away. We must band together so we can not be defeated. IF we all hope and keep fighting for what we believe in, no matter what religion we are, muslim, christian,buddist or anything else,it will happen. we have to believe in ourselves and others. we cant let color, religion or race come between the one thing that matters..........World Peace. I hope you all can see what this means to me. I am a Catholic, and i have friends that are Jewish, Buddist, and Muslim. Some of my friends are Asian, Latin,and African, and i have no problem with that. i just wish the rest of the world could agree with me on that .

This site was soooooo helpful. I had to do a powerpoint presentation and i found all my information here! Thanks sooo much!! Peace of Christ, Kelsey

I am the 4th great granddaughter of one Thomas Allen, who came to Boston with the British and after the Boston massacure of March, 1770 he deserted the English and decided that liberty was the best of all. This pride in liberty has come down through the ages. All we know of Thomas Allen is who he married and that when he fought his own country men he had to use an alias, if he would have been taken prisoner by the British he would have been shot. Thank you for poosting this site, even our grandchildren enjoyed reading the articles. The pride in our flag and our freedoms are still running strong in this family and are being carried on by our grandchildren. The grandchildren have stated that their ancestors are hero's. Could not have put it any better than that.

I do not support the display of the ameican flag on the mast called the yachtclub mast. This mast displays the ameican flag at the gaff wgich is a position of honor but the yacht club mast includes a truck to its mast that is higher hen the main mast and flys their banner on that truck makeing the american flag lower. in mu opinion this is a violation Francis J.
