Wonderful site. Excellent source of info for my girl scouts.

I would like to see 9/11 declared a national holiday. Is there any move afoot to have 9/11 declared a national holiday? Thank you.

Carlin, Baton Rouge, LA [08-25-2002]

I have a 12"x18" American flag displayed on a small staff on my cubicle wall at work. Is it permissible to have the flag displayed 24/7, or should I take it down at night, roll it up, put it in my desk drawer, and then unfurl it again each morning, display it in my cubicle all day long, and, again, at night when I leave work to go home, do I roll it up and put it in my desk drawer for the night until I return to work the next morning? Or, can I leave it up 24/7? Thank you.

Your site is excellent. I first learned of flag courtesy from my "Handbook for Boys", the old Boy Scout Manuel. It has been many years, and visiting your site refreshed my memory of how we should display the flag. Many folks think that just showing the flag is enough. Some displays I have seen are just out and out rude. I have seen tattered flags, flags where the red and white stripes have been cut to be streamers, and the actual flag used a clothing, but what really raised my blood presure 20 points was when I saw our flag used as a car seatcover! Keep the site up, our people need to know about our flag. Glenn
Glenn S. Yoshida, Kaneohe HI [08-24-2002]

You have a wonderful sight that I will use to prepare myself for giving a flag history class to my children's elementary school. God Bless these United States of America.
Lieutenant Colonel Doug Olsen, U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, Acworth, Georgia [08-24-2002]

I'm getting more than a little dismayed at the treatment our flag has been receiving since 9/11. I'm as patriotic as the next person, perhaps even more patriotic than most, but I think buying,selling and wearing clothes that represent the flag are reprehensible. Thank you for providing such a wonderful website!
David E. Crutcher, Birmingham, Alabama [08-23-2002]

This is a wonderful site! I found so much information that I needed for my Girl Scout Troop! Thanks!
Teresa, Wahiawa, Hawaii [08-12-2002]

I say that this is an excellent site that I can use information for my friends. All the pictures/info could also help me with my research projects (or organizations that I belong to in Gettysburg, PA) about the true history of America. GOD BLESS AMERICA...FOREVER!
Becky Shayda, York, Pennsylvania [08-12-2002]

This is a very interesting and informative site...but not finding the information I am looking for. Is there in appropriate method of laundering or otherwise cleansing the flag? The one I speak of specifically is an all-weather flag, but a cloth flag would need laundering just as bad. can you let me know your view on this? I love the patrism that has now become so prevalent. My son is a paratrooper in the US Army and my G-G-G-G-G grandfather was one of the founding fathers, Thomas Johnson, who organized the colonial militia (I believe is what it was called), was the first governor of Maryland, and spoke the eulogy at George Washington's funeral. I am very proud of our heritage as a family and a nation, and very proud to have my son serving in the armed forces in the war against those who would terrorize the world. He began boot camp about 3 days before the attack on the east coast in 2001. This no doubt was - and is - one of the worst tragedies in our history. God Bless America and all she stands for!

Thanks again
p. adkins, wayne, WV .... USA [07-24-2002]

Hello- this morning in church, we had a retired pastor filling in for our regular pastor. He gave a children's sermon about the American flag and Betsy Ross. He was trying to locate someone that might know all of the words to a song he was taught as a child (I would guess he is now in his 80's) He could only remember bits and pieces. Something like: Betsy Ross was a fine ole' girl, she sewed up a flag with red, white and blue. Red was for the blood shed, white for purity, blue for the sky That's all he could remember. I hope I got it right to what he said....I told him I would check the web to see if I could locate the song. Would you have any idea where I might be able to locate it? Thank you for any assistance you can give! Glenda Brown

Jim Wood, Dallas, Texas [07-24-2002]

I feel very proud to be an AMERICAN CITIZEN and proud to dispaly our countrys flag and feel that every american should receive a flag to dispaly . And The men and women who fought for our frredom and the flag should be honored for there bravery. And we should never take out of our coutries pledge " UNDER GOD " Our forefathers started this country and came to to start this mighty nation with Gods help, Shame on the man who wanted to take that away, he is not a true american, Move to a Godless country and see what life is like.

While researching family genealogy I found a certificate No.H 77744 issue:1900 with my Mother's Aunt: Emma Migge signed as the recipient. I was curious as to whether copies can be attained? My certificate is in poor condition. Emma Migge was said to be a very interesting, talented and involved woman for her day. Very stylish and was suppose to be the first woman in her area( Flatbush, Brooklyn, NY, USA ) to drive an automobile. I like the fact she contributed to the American Flag House and Betsy Ross Memorial Association.

On what side of an entrance door should the flag be placed?
sal caruso [07-10-2002]

Please clarify several points: I would never cut up a flag or sew clothes out of it. But I have a T-shirt with a US flag design on it. Is this inappropriate? Also, I have a "window clingy" on my car that was distributed by a Christian radion station I listen to. It has a flag design along with the words, "God Bless America." Below this lettering is a clear border that has the radio station's call letters in small print. I am very fond of that window clingy. Right now it is in the center of a "One Nation Under God" sign I made for my car's back windshield. I have a small flag attached to the driver's side of my car, it has a white plastic staff with a piece at its base that slides onto the top of the door frame. Is this okay? I love my country. Please let me know if I'm representing it properly.
jan schultz [07-10-2002]

i really like your site. there is one thing i would like to known.on the site where it tells you what days to display the flag. how come you dont have father day on it. but you do mother day as a day to display it. it just makes think that everybody thinks that father are not as inportant as mother.just wondering. thanks carrie zabel

anonymous [07-10-2002]

We have a slight dilemma regarding display of the U.S. Flag at the entrance to our Recreational Vehicle park here. Since we have both U.S. and Canadian residents/owners, it was decided to display the flag of both countries. I know from your display page that both should be at the same height and should be lit at night if permenantly displayed, but upon entering the main gate of the park, where the flags are displayed on opposite sides of the road, which flag should go where? I would really appreciate a prompt response as we have an informational meeting on 7/06/02 and I would like to inform the residents/owners of your response. Thank you ever so much. Respectfully, C. T. Cheek

Kenny Adams, Corpus Christi, Texas [07-04-2002]

This site has been very helpful, I came in search of how to make an American Flag for a friend who wanted a real cloth flag not a nylon one, and found the information about the "one cut star". I am proud to say that I can follow in the tradition of Betsy Ross and make, with pride and love, a flag to hang at my home. --Thank You.

Phil Menges, Littleton, Colorado [07-01-2002]

When I look at the flag I see all the wars that was fought for our freedom and all the suffering that a lot of men and women went through. That GOD is still a huge part of this great nation, even though there are a lot of people that are trying to take our rights and freedoms away from us. Every time they take something away it is something that somone fought for. Thank you for all the information about that great old glory
Debbie, Quinlan, Texas [07-01-2002]

We have a print of "Birth of Our Nation's Flag" that measures 22" by 24" approximately. It has a seal in the lower right hand corner with the #6880 on it and says it was presented to Mrs. Alexander W. Johnston of Lowell, MA. We are wondering why she might have been presented this and any other information that you might have about this print. We have also been told that this print is nothing and that Betsy Ross did not make the first flag.

Great information! Thank you!

I would like to make a Besty Ross flag I need the measurments of the original flag. How wide and how long was this flag. This is a hobby of mine,I have just finished making a 1861 NC State flag and would like to add a Besty Ross flag to my collection. Thank-you for your help.Geniece McCullen

I found your site when researching the meaning of the colors of the flag. I found that information -- and much more. Thanks for an excellent site.
Deborah Hyatt, Chicago, IL [07-01-2002]

I found this page while researching Betsy Ross for a church "Freedom Fair", in which I was to portray Mrs. Ross. I was surprised that she was several years younger than I currently am (33) when she created our nations flag. I was also surprised at how much of a great inspiration the rest of her story is to women in our country - a story that is not taught in our schools. Thank you for including this wonderful woman in your pages.
Brenda Edwards, Indianapolis, IN [07-01-2002]

I am displaying a flag decal on each side of my truck. My question is, on the drivers side of the truck the union, blue field is in the upper left corner. On the passenger side of the truck the decale looks backwards. When I look at the flag on the passenger side, where should the union, blue field be, on the left side or the right side as you face the passenger side of the truck. I hope you under stand what I am trying to say. Can you help me with my question? Thanks very much. Michael

Thank you so much for your information on Betsy Ross. I am having fun making the "5" point star just as she did. Hopefully some day, I will be able to visit this great historical site. I have however, visited the Smithsonian many years ago and saw the flag there. What a great site to see. Wish all Americans will have the opportunity to do the same some day.

I have a 48 star flag that we got when my great-gradfather died. He was a Spanish -American war Vet. I say that I can fly it. My freind says no, that only a current flag can be flown. I know what the link will say. What I need is chapter and verse according to the flag code that points this out to him. thanks SFC SALERNO

Hi, I plan on driving my classic 1966 Chevy Convertible in a town parade on the 4th of July. In order to use the correct etiquette should I obtain a fender mounting kit and flag (I can't find anyone who sells these). Also, should my car be first in the parade - not sure if I understand how that works especially if many cars have flags. I would prefer to have the correct fender mount set up - not just hang a flag off of the window. Thanks Mike

I am a proud American and am grateful to Betsy Ross for being one of the earliest Americans. People who have given this country a legacy, culture, sacrifice and a nation that has not abused its power and has been a protector of civilization's strive for the pursuit of happiness and life. We have not always gotten it right, but Americans have shed their blood for just cause and paid for freedom for all. There is so much good in the American story and to be proud of. Being an American and the freedoms and story of this nation has let people pursue their dreams and let them be free to be creative and Americans have made amazing contributions in all fields for the mere 226 years of existence. God Bless America and it is up to the people to recognize how fortunate they are to be Americans and realize the greatness there is throughout our history that has sacrificed for certain wrongs that happen in humanity. The flag is everything of America and it is a beautiful flag. Beautiful colors, beautiful meaning and Betsy did us proud!

I'm a descendant of Benjamin Ross, youngest brother of Patrick Ross, Elizabeth "Betsy" Griscom Ross's 1st husband. In my family is the silver wedding platter from Patrick & Betsy's wedding, engraved with their names, and passed down through the generations. I remember as a small child, my Great-Grandmother telling me of my relation to my Great (5x?)Aunt Elizabeth Griscom when she showed me a family bible with the family tree in the front. I am a resolute patriot and am proud to be an 11th generation American.

I love your new brochure. We are now in agreement about certain things. Betsy Ross is a very important figure for all to remember in terms of dedication to the cause of freedom, the endurance of women in the 18th century, as well as the devotion to family these women showed. The loss of husbands in the cause of liberty; (HUSBANDS remember, it is plural ), shows a dedication almost unknown today. Let us always remember the contributions of American WOMEN to the cause of Liberty. Betsy Ross, Molly Pitcher, and Abagail Adams are role models for all young women to follow. Regards, Andrew of Philadelphia

Danielle Piazza, New Smyrna Beach,Florida [05-28-2002]

The early naval hero Steven Decatur said," To our country, in her intercourse with other nations may she always be right; but OUR country right or wrong." These words echo down to me through the centuries to remind me that the United States is a great country. Yes, there were times when the government acted in a manner that was not correct, and many can complain about this president or that one; but, it is the beauty of this nation that we have THE RIGHT to voice our complaints. The Constitution of the United States is, without doubt, the most important framework of government that is known to man. It is, I say IS, a document that can adapt to meet the demands of a constantly growing nation. It is in this line that I say that the burning of the flag is not some great sin. It is an act to show the government that citizens are not pleased with some decision. Many would have flag-burning outlawed, I say that the Constitution allows every American to voice their ideas even if it means the destruction of our nation's honored symbol. I say to you, that defense of the FLAG is also defense of American rights to express dissatifaction. I may not agree with you, but I WILL defend to the death your right to disagree.
Andrew of Philadelphia, The city of Philadelphia, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, The United States [05-28-2002]

Dear peeps, I think bettys Ross is a good person for makin the flag and for thinkin of our country .I would like to no how she made the falg and how shecould stand make somthing that big????????? I think that Bettes Ross should have her house as a land mark because she made the falg and that is something that people think about and because she sounds like she was an important part of peoples life this is why i think it should be a land mark.....,,,,,, Sincerly, I like food, Andrea.,Thank u and have a nice day/night

My grandmother, Marion Stewart Smith of Ridegway, Pa. told me that she was a direct descendent of Betsy Ross. She said Betsy was her reason for being in the DAR. She had a letter that she prized which she said confirmed her link. She died when I was 16. I have no idea where those documents went and am curious to see if she was correct, or how I can find out more.

Patriotism is over-rated. It used to be a good thing, but now it's a fad, and it's wrong. Back when Betsy Ross made the flag it truly stood for something wonderful. Now after 9-11 everyone has a flag waving from their mini-van. It's wonderful that America truly supports eachother and can bond together after a crisis. However, the whole patriotism thing is becoming an item and is being sold to the American consumer. At this year's Super Bowl I was shocked at the use of flare and sparkle used to symbolize patriotism.

Just found your web site...really have enjoyed the information...a few years ago I was researching Betsy Griscom Ross's family, I had been told for many years that my Grandmother, Nancy Stewart Huffman's family(Stewart/Hart/Reed), was connected in some way and had received a silk Flag through some organization. Never found the proof that I wanted for a connection, however. This Flag disappeared at the estate sale in 1936.An elderly Aunt had seen it there and had told me about it. Iam doing a Flag presentation for my DAR Chapter meeting in May... Will be 86 years old in July!& will see the Conservation process at the Smithsonian in July...Thank you....

I am doing a report on Betsy Ross and this site really helps. Thanks!
anonymous [04-27-2002]

i like what i have seen so far. about this site. 'cuz i needed help on a research paper for school and i was having a terrible time trying to find any research on here to this site and i practically found everything i needed for this report and i turned it in and i got an A+. so like i said i really do think that this site is worth the while when it takes it a while to download so thank you very much for having this site on the internet. it helped me a whole lot so thanks again for the help. yours truly Izzy. and also i was wondering if you could tell me if Betsy Ross was black or white because in history class they were telling us that she was black then some other history teacher told me she was white. so if you could please respond within a couple of days i would really appreciate it. like i said in the beginng thanks for putting the site on the internet for other users as my self who often do book reports i think that they appreciate at it also. so thanks again and have a fantastic day or night whatever you would like to call it.

Hi, I am Brandi from Cornwall New York. I was assigned to do research on a choice of people. I chose Betsy Ross. Your website has given me so much information. I thank you very much. The only thing that I had trouble with was that you never indicated whether Betsy had ever won awards of some kind, or what her role in society was like. If you could, would you please add that information or at least me the information?

I was verry intrigued to come to this site and find the imfo that I did. My occupation as a student in American History is to find general resources and research articles on such information as this . I would just like to express my thanks to all the staff there for taking their time to keep all documintation up to date. I found this site to be verry fun and interresting . I also mastered the objectives on making a five sided star . What was nice about this site was the fact that I did not go in and try to read it, and have all these advertisements that had nothing to do with the site. It stuck right to the facts about Betsy .

Dear Webmaster, I am a fifth grade student at Walnut Elementary School in Newbury Park,California. We have this thing called Public Speaking at our school and I'm representing Betsy Ross. I needed this information on Betsy Ross, and so I thank you. Betsy has been a joy to learn about. My mom said for a little joke,"Betsy Ross must not have very good luck with husbands because all three of hers died while she was still alive.". I thought it was a dirty joke because it's actually really sad. Don't you agree? Yours Truly and Thanks Again, Sarah Dawn LaGioia- Walnut Elementary

I have learned a lot about our American Flag and I am proud of it because I am very patriotic since 9-11-01. It did not occur to me that I need to learn about the Flag. I learned about the founder because I have to do a report over Betsy Ross and I am very proud she made a Flag for a symbol of our freedom in America. If she were still living today I would like to meet her and learn more about her and how she lived back then but I am still researching about her so maybe I will learn about her life back then. Thank you for making a web site about her I have learned a lot about ther American Flag.

Gulf Ridge Council Pack 45 recently had such a cerimony. shortly after 911. it was a memorabe and moving evening. so.... please advise others of the scouts and their ability to retire old flags.

The flag is a great thing that shows everything that our country stands for: FREEDOM. I think that it is also great that our world is showing so much support for one another after 9/11. I am doing a biography on a famous person and the first person that came to my mind was BETSY ROSS, who was the person that sewed this flag that has so much meaning in every AMERICANS lives. Our country is not sectioned off by blacks, whites, asians, hispanics or any other race we are ONE we are STRONG we are AMERICANS!

I want to know if there are any pic of the liberty bell where the Betsy ross house is?I don't really think that you should do something like using an important person's house and turning it into a museam.i don't think that's fighjt.

I am a Junior/Cadette Girl Scout leader. I found this site while helping my girls earn their "United We Stand" badge. For more information about this badge, see I am using some of the information from The Betsy Ross Homepage to help us meet a badge requirement. Thanks for your help!
