Thank you for all the helpful information on this site. My son, which is in the 4th grade, had to know what the red, white and blue on our American flag stand for. Found it here on your site. Proud to be an American. Thanks again.

This is a great website. I have been asked to be ole Betsy for a rather large group of folks. I am an avid student of the Revolusionary War but did not have many facts about this grand lady. Thanks for the quick study...now I must finish an old book on her from the 30's "Quaker Rebel" Its quite good....Now I just hope that Goerge Washington is there...wouldn't that be a hoot!
Patrice Barnes, Columbia, Maryland [10-30-2002]

Super site. I bought a Betsy Ross figurine - it contains after shave - at an antique fair recently. Best wishes.
Jack Harvey, Scotland [10-30-2002]

I am in 8th grade agin this year because I stayed back but that has nothing to do with the fact that growing up I have learned a lot about the Betsy Ross flag and I just wanted to say that what an amazing story of the past. I was in about 5th grade when I first learned about the flag and at the beginning I didn't quiet understand the pain,heartstake,and joy that it brought to the whole country at the time. Now being 14 almost 15 and still hearing about the Betsy Ross flag I can almost feel the pain, joy, and heartstake that most people must have felt during the time period. Even though the flag has been done over and over again there will never be another flag like the Betsy Ross flag. Well that is all the time I have to write but I will come back and write to you again soon. Respectfuly yours, Kelly Smith

Kayle, Byron Center,MI. [10-29-2002]

We recently visited Betsy Ross's house and enjoyed it thoroughly. There were so many facts about her that we didn't know. We purchased a flag thinking it was the flag with the 13 stars in a circle and, upon returning home, realized that it was the flag as we know it today. I would like to order a flag with the 13 stars on it, the size needed for hanging outside our home. How can I do this?
Kara Parle, Merced, CA [10-29-2002]

Informative website, keep up the good work.
John Allen, Dallas, texas [10-29-2002]

Jessica, Ft.Worth Texas [10-26-2002]

I am very grateful for the informatin I found on the flag. Especially how to display it in the church. I find the information is a little different from the information the Navy Memorial affords in their flag protocol. They show a picture. On page 3 of 12 pages is what I was looking for on your display,item #12. If you have comments please e-mail me.

**CHELSEA** [10-16-2002]

This was a wonderful website. I am co-leader of Girl Scout Troop 390 in Ellenwood, GA and we have done many flag ceremonies for schools, churches, etc. We are now learning about how to retire old, worn out flags using the flag burning ceremony. This site has offered us a lot of history of the American flag, and some flag etiquette, as well as how to respectfully retire and burn old, worn out flags. Thanks for the wide range of information. Keep up the good work in keeping Americans informed of the past and present.
Cynthia G. Pitts, Ellenwood, GA 30294 (USA) [10-16-2002]

Hi! Your site is FANTASTIC! Each year, at Halloween, I try to portray a person in American history. Last year, after 9/11 it only seemed right for me to be the Statue of Liberty-and I built her headress correctly and in proportion. With that I printed a two page fact sheet on her vital statistics, etc... This year I have decided to be Betsy Ross. As a quilter it only seems right. Your website has helped me beyond belief. I will pass your site on to others as I am explaining Betsy to our patients (I work in on very busy ophthalmology practice)! THANKS! Cheryl Gratt Tallahassee, FL
Cheryl Gratt, Tallahassee, FL [10-16-2002]

Hello! Betsy Ross was the cousin and ancestor of my great-grandmother in Philadelphia. My great-grandmother's name was Marie Ross Harper and I am quite proud of my heritage, which includes an Irish Baron-Family and Swedish Farmers and, indeed, ancestry to the first flagmaker. I am an american artist working in Germany. Wonderful that there is homepage about my ancestor's family. Came across this by pure and utter chance. Keep up the good work! Many greetings from Charles

quame [10-09-2002]

Hello Betsy! How are you today.... oh wait... you're dead!!!!!!!!!! No, I'm kidding. Anyways, I read your life story, how you made the flag, and I took a vitrual tour of your house. It seems nice. We are reseaching the period because in reading we are doing the book called, "My Brother Sam is dead". We haven't read a lot, on about 50 pages. I thought I would hate it, I mean it's a little old-fashion, but it's pretty good. I'm always making predictions. LOL! Anywho, I guess I'll be going, and doing some other things on your site.

Since September 11th. the flag has been greatly respected and has shown great love for this country. As I am researching this project, I hope that I will learn a lot about her espectially some things that I don't already know. -Megan Howard

I had the pleasure of visiting the Betsy Ross house on Wednesday 9/11/2002. I was part of a radio contest group from Charleston WV. The Betsy Ross house was my favorite part of the one day Philadelphia tour. We crammed as much history as we could in our one day visit. I have many wonderful pictures to remember the beautiful Betsy Ross house and gravesite. I'm already planning my next visit to Philadelphia, so I will have more time to take in the wonderful historical sites we all learned in school as children. I just wished I wouldn't have waited 46 years to visit. Sincerely, Larry Given Charleston, WV

I was doing research for my website (not created yet--need more info) & I came across this website. I would just like to know if anyone is from Omaha, Nebraska(where I was born & raised)& knows anything about my grandmother (who is deceased)--"Betsy Ross" from Omaha (Helen O. Worley). She was really quite famous in Omaha--crocheting the American Flag & also known for making quilts for the Jerry Lewis Telethon. She wore the Betsy Ross outfit, was noticed by all the city, even the Mayor & such. She received a key to the city, also. I am trying to locate any old newspaper clippings, pictures of her in her Betsy Ross dress, crocheting the flag or anything. I have nothing (material) to remember her by. My father & her are deceased & only Myself & brother remain. He does have one of her flags, (that she crocheted), he lived w/her, up until her death. All of her belongings were ransacked & ruined. If anyone has any pictures or knows how I can get copies of them, please e-mail me! Thank You so much!!! lhworley@cwnet.com

I have always loved this time period in history and have once visted the Besy House once when I was little and did not realized how important it was, and just went where ever my parents took me. I am now growing fond of every thing that I saw on the web page and now want to go back this summer for our family vacation!!!!!! My aunts and ucles live near so i may come vist again and have a better experience!!!!!!!! My mom will be calling to ask for some information soon.

QUESTIONS: Is it appropriate to lower the U.S. Flag to half-staff for former and current employees of a State University upon their death, with out the direction of the Govenor? Is it appropriate to lower the U.S. Flag to half-staff upon the death of a student at that State University who is a foreign student and not a citizen of the United States? When a flag pole flys the United States Flag with the State Flag and/or the University's Flag is it appropriate to lower the State and/or University Flag to half-staff on the same flag pole that the U.S. Flag is flying on(that is to say, the U.S. flag is not lowered but the State or University flag is lowered for the death of a current or former employee)?

What has impressed me the most is the fact that they focused on her flag making more than any other activity she did as an American woman. I would love to know even more about the person behind the scraps of fabric that turned into our great flag. We are more than lucky, we are truly blessed. What a country, what a Betsy!

Thank you so very much for the flag rules and regs, especially how to fly it. There's a moron in my horseman's group who has refused to listen to those who know what they are talking about regarding this subject. We have a mounted color guard for parades and special events and several times she has refused to listen on proper placement of the American flag in the color guard although she makes sure she is the one to carry it. Consequently, our ignorance has shown with the improperly placed flag. Now I have it in writing.......the ultimate proof to people like her. Thanks again

Dear sirs, I am a teacher at a small private school. I have in my class 13 seniors who are taking government. We recently have been studying flag etiquette. The students are very much involved and excited about the flag and care of it. Upon study they found that our church/school has 4 flags which are currently being stored properly. These flags are very torn and tattered. 2 of which flew over the Ohio State capitol. I was wondering what are the specifics in destroying properly a worn flag. I am aware you recommend taking them to the VFW or Elk Lodge, but if done properly and with ceremoniously, how would a proper, respectful flag burning ceremony take place? I would appreciate the information. Travis Burke

Harding, n/a [09-13-2002]

There are a number of experiences, memories, relationships, when they come to mind brings tears to my eyes and causes my chest to swell with pride. When I think of the price "my" God paid for me. The parents this God chose to give me. The ten brothers and sisters I was blessed to grow up with. The three sons, daughters-in-law, five grandchildren, four great-grandchildren I have been blessed with. The many places I have had the previlege to live in through years with the Military Service (USAF), plus the many places I either visited or traveled through, including New York City and Washington D.C.. All the great many friendships I have had throughout my life. The employments I've been so fortunate to have been blessed with, one I retired from. At present time, I have a job I look forward to coming to each and every work day, a great boss, wonderful co-workers, great services we do in the community. I am truly blessed!! I have lived in Hawaii, a dream come true. I have no desire to travel overseas (except maybe to the Holy Land) because there is so much of the United States that I have not seen yet. I am very much interested in all the other countries and what goes on in the world, but no place on earth can ever compare to my country, the United States of America, the Home of the Brave, the Land of the Free. We are far from being perfect, but we "Stand Out" before all other countries. There is just something about that Flag. When I stand to pledge Allegiance to the Flag, I tremble with patriotism and pride, because of what it represents. There is just no words that can be written that can give it total justice and truly describe it's meaning. I AM SO VERY PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!!! GOD BLESS AMERICA, AGAIN!

I came across your site while looking for information on our great flag. As an American and a veteran of the United States armed forces I’m impressed with the patriotism that has become so prevalent since 11 Sept. 2001 however it brings me great pain to see the manner in which the symbol of this great country is being abused. I urge my fellow countrymen to be patriotic, but please understand that this isn’t the first time that this great lady has come under attack. If you are going to use our flag to express your feelings please take the time to read Flag Rules and Regulations then display your flag properly, proudly, and afford it the respect this symbol of our nation deserves.

My daughter and I had the opportunity to visit the Betsy Ross house this past July. It was particularly meaningful for my daughter since she is portraying Betsy at the Yankee Peddler Festival in Canal Fulton (Ohio) this year. She will be demonstrating sewing and how to cut out a 5 pointed star from fabric. Festival participants will be given the white material for the star and a small square of blue fabric on which to sew their star. My daughter is 12 years old and actually sewed her own dress for the festival.

MELISSA [09-09-2002]

I am searching for information covering proper disposal of a US flag being retired from display in my church sanctuary. Also, is it proper to dry clean, wash, or repair an old flag to freshen it for continued display, or must it be replaced? ........Thanks...........

On the rules page about who should be able to wear a flag pin, you say military, police, and firefighters. You forget the EMS personel who gave their lives this past 9-11. Most services do not follow under a fire company and recognition should come for us. Thank You!

Proud to serve this country as our Flag has done. My passion for the flag, which some people show great contempt or irreverence towards, means more to me than just a piece of cloth. Most people will never truly comprehend, or grasp the love I have for the flag. People have called the flag, just a piece of cloth. Men and women stained the cloth crimson red with their blood. Firefighters rush into smoke and fire, so hot they would smell their hair as it singed. Bullets have whistled by both soldier and police officer. Many people knew they would not survive. Still they pressed on, until the breath of freedom was no more. They gave their life for freedom and the flag I love. America was forged in the heat of battle from tools of freedom. Our founding fathers graphed into the flag white threads of purity and innocence. The men of valor graphed red threads of hardiness into the flag and the country I cherish. The blue sea of justice and the stars of heaven were stitched into the flag, ensuring freedom would live forever. One and all, young and old, everyone was created equal. We must respect the rights of all, if this flag is to continue to wave in the breezes of freedom. From the beginning, while freedom was still being born. Our forefathers cried with loud voices: liberty, justice and freedom for all. They not only wanted physical freedom, but the ability to speak freely, without persecution. Our forefathers wanted the ability to choose the course of action for their children, instead of one being dictated to them. They truly understood why it was so important to create our flag, not only in physical form, but also with the spirit of freedom. I watched the news and seen my flag of freedom, in my eyes being desecrated. By the people I am willing to serve, and lay down my life for. They burn or spit on the very symbol of freedom evokes a great cry of passion from this country. “Oh! My heartache, and turns my stomach inside out, and my mind begins to fill with anger!” Our forefathers never thought what they penned would lead to such atrocities in my eyes. Yet without the rights of protest, speech, and demonstration, granted by our forefathers, we would not truly be free. When the news tells another story where a flag is being burned, or someone has marched for a cause less then popular. Remember how great this county is. People have also seen the results of great atrocity at Tienanmen Square. One young college student stood against a massive tank, knowing he could not defeat the tank. He denied it progress. He said not a word in his silence, but his cries for freedom were heard around the world. Yes, it causes me and others great pain, for we feel a great sadness, to see our flag defiled. We most remember it is only growing pains, for this country was built on freedom. “Look at my flag, waving the breeze. Never forget we our free.”

to whom ever it may concern I need your help asap I am have to write a 5 min. speech on the history of the american flag and I only found enough GOOD information to write 2 and a half mins.

It is also important because it is for the september 11th ceramony which my air force jrotc program is doing please help. thanks leighann

For a city event, a majority of our steering committee wishes to create a t-shirt with an American Flag emblem across the chest. The design has been created by a local artist. The design is of an American Flag blowing in a breeze with several "furls". Across the middle furl is the name of our city in script, approx 1/3 ov the flag being covered. It is my contention that it is inappropriate and disrespectful to place any word across the Flag, be it an actual flag or a representation. I would value your opinion on this issue, as soon as possible. Thank you... Michael C. Eddleman

Thank you for this site it helped me link Betsy Ross to my Family Tree. She married one of my ancestors John Ross. I thank god that she went against her families wishes and married John Roos because I feel very proud to know that I am related to the person who created the flag that we look at each and every day remembering those people who died on september 11th. On september 11th I will remember those who dided that day and those how brought the flag to us. Thank you Betsy Ross my Great great.....Grandma for giving the flag to America! God Bless America, Canada and the UK!

This one is very informative and interesting as i didnt really know anything about the flag before, and id just like 2 thankyou 4 helping me get an A+ in my history essay.

I realize that it is presumutious to use "flagmaker" as my e-mail address, but as a direct desecendant of Andrew Griscom III I feel I can use it. Some years ago my father (Maurice Hancock Griscom) gave me a book about Betsy Ross and the American flag and most of the Griscoms were listed. My grandfather's name was Minor Griscom and he was born in Salem, NJ (year unknown). As soon as I can I would like to visit the Betsy Ross House and please feel free to e-mail me a message. Sincerely, Betsy C. Griscom

I visited Betsy Ross's home in the 4th grade (lets just say that was over 30 years ago) on a class trip. My mother had come with us and enjoyed it so much we went back on a family trip. I wanted to show my 4th grader and hope to actually bring her soon. Thanks for the opportunity to see it again.
