We fly the flag on a 25 ft. pole in our back yard. My husband was in WW II so we have a love for the flag We live on a river and have been told that others enjoy seeing our flag also. I belong to a Federated Woman's Club and the president is very adamant that the pledge is said correctly and with all the comma's. We have a flag that has flown over the sunken Arfizona in Hawaii that we have in a flag tricorn.

What presidential flag violation?? Sec. 10. — Modification of rules and customs by President Any rule or custom pertaining to the display of the flag of the United States of America, set forth herein, may be altered, modified, or repealed, or additional rules with respect thereto may be prescribed, by the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States, whenever he deems it to be appropriate or desirable; and any such alteration or additional rule shall be set forth in a proclamation
Fred Leavines, Metairie, La. [07-30-2003] Webmaster's Note: President Bush signed a small American flag with a marker. This is a violation of the Flag Code. Had he wished to do so legally he is required to issue a proclamation prior to committing the violation.

Hello, I am finding out how people feel about the advertising campaign being used by "Barely There," people that make underwear. They recently are using famous women such as Betsy Ross and Susan B. Anthony to sell their underwear. I found your e-mail address on a Betsy Ross site and hope that you will take the time and give me your honest opinion. Thank you! Marilyn Ogg P.S. Where is your Betsy Ross Web-site? Thanks!

Hi: It would be wonderful if you could create a geniology forum for this site. My grandmother was Jennie Ross and she married George Smith. They lived in Detroit, Michigan and she was a direct descendent of Betsy Ross. Sincerely, Georgina Kimbell, Hilton Head Island, SC

I have a 1905 framed certificate from the American Flag House and Betsy Ross Memorial Association, purchased from an antiques market in Taunton, Somerset, England. How it arrived there after all those years beats me, anyhow browsing the net I found this site, very informative. Keep the Flag flying.

Thank you SO much for having a printable Betsy Ross flag. I have looked everywhere for a coloring book with a flag I could use for a patriotic activity, to no avail. And with a few clicks of the computer, have found your wonderful website and everything I need for this activity. Thousands of thanks!

I visited Betsy ross home 3 years ago and bought a patch for my daughter. I would like to bye another patch for our patch collection.
connie Barbey, Desoto, Mo. [07-15-2003]

Please settle a dispute; I have always been told that the State Flag of Texas is the only flag which can be flown at the same height as the American Flag. On your web site, you do not mention this when you describe how to fly the Flag. Thank you.

I came across a bizarre web site a few weeks ago that tells you who you were in a previous life. I was told that I was Betsy Ross, so I have surfed the web looking for information on this particular lady and stumbled across this site. I thought I would leave you this message to let you know. By the way, I don't look anything like her! Haha

I hope that my poems can be of some comfort for the victims of the tragic events of 911 and their families. The horrible events of that day will never be forgotten. I wanted everyone to know that all of our lives have forever changed since that day. I believe that poems and stories written about these events are the only release that we have. I'm proud to be an American and I'm very impressed with this site. God Bles America! Ginger Whitley
Sarah Virginia 'Ginger' Whitley, Virginia Beach, Virginia 23451 [07-10-2003]

I read your section on the point, counter point about Betsy Ross and as a teacher and a historial I was disturbed. First, you gave Betsy Ross the benefit of every doubt and those who disputed none, displaying an obvious bias. But more importantly, you talk about circumstantial evidence as being proof. While the Betsy Ross story is a great tale and could be plausible, it is unprovable and thus bad history to promote it as true. A more accurate rendition would be to talk of it in the light of Americana and discussing it as possibly true then to display bad scholarship and claim it true through light evidence. It does damage to the serious study of history when emotions and what we want to be true gets in the way of historical scholarship.
Daniel, New Jersey [07-10-2003]

I was so surprised to find the instructions for making a five pointed star with one snip of the scissors. I had learned about it years ago in grade school from a book about Betsy Ross that was in the school library. The story mentioned that George Washington suggested a 6 pointed star as it was easier to make. Betsy Ross told him that it was very easy to make a five pointed star and showed him how to cut a pattern with one snip of the scissors. I don't think the book told how to make the star and I've been looking for the instructions ever since. No one ever believed me when I told the story. Thank you for including it in the web site!

Kendra, Avalon,Pennsylvania,United States of America [07-10-2003]

Your site is filled with great flag information. I was trying to discover why only men must remove their headresses when saluting the flag, but not women? Did removing your head cover begin with military custom, political custom or popular custome? Just curious after attending a major sporting even and seeing the confusion among the ladies on whether or not to take off their caps.

kayla corbin, maryland [07-10-2003]

I am suspossed to be a direct decendent of Betsy Ross. However I'm confused how this is to be . I have documetation that shows that her grandson Joseph Ross fought in the Civil War . One of Joseph's daughters is Cora Ross Harris. She is my paternal grandfathers'(Alonzo Harris), grandmother. Cora was born in 1860. My confusion comes from this . If Betsy only had daughters(7 of them) and was remarried twice then how did the surname Ross reach her grandson Joseph? Also, do you know of Joseph Ross' Civil War records? And is their a Betsy Ross Decendent Foundation of any kind? Any response would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Danny Harris.

Carol Tensen, Burbank, CA [07-10-2003]

I live in Bordentown, New Jersey, the city where the real creator of the first American flag lived most of his life. Two blocks away from my house I can visit the grave of this wonderful man and the graves of his family members. It's a disgrace how his accomplishments have been stripped from him by the mumblings of some descendant of Betsy Ross 1n 1870, almost a hundred years after. Betsy Ross may have been a great person, but creator of the first flag she was not. Here are a few links to sites with accurate information. flagguys.com/hop.html, www.usflag.org/francis.hopkinson.html, cviog.uga.edu/Projects/gainfo/hopkinsonflagstamp.htm

This is Betsy Ross. Happy Independence day to all Americans. I am honored that my flag making has become such an amazing part of American history. So how are y'all? I'm just peachy, would ya believe God actually sprung for some computers up here...sewing machines too! No more hand sewing for Betsy Ross! Don't worry Georgie and Abe(as in Washington and Lincoln) are doing swell.

I am a descendant oF Betsy Ross and am truly enjoying sharing all of the wonderful information the internet has to offer with my young children. I think it is a wonderful tribute to someone who gave us the wonderful symbol of freedom that so many embrace today. I do not care what other's say-it's been told to myself and to my siblings throughout our lives, this story of patriotism and of how the flag came to be. Thank you so much for this site both personally and from the education standpoint. There should be more sites dedicated to enlightening our young people to at least question and defend what they believe it.

anonymous, Calif. [06-24-2003]

I have a framed print of the Charles Weisberger painting of Betsy Ross. This was presented to a woman in the 1920's who significantly contributed to the founding of the house, and the bottom of the print has a seal and the printed/signed presentation and appreciation statement detailing this. Do I have something rare or valuable, or is this one of many such items?

Terry Finigan, Deland Florida [06-22-2003]

I have seen many rules and regs when it comes to displaying the flag. I would guess you would have the correct answers! I have seen where if you are displaying the flag suspended over a sidewalk, if you are facing the flag, the union should be at the right. Maybe this is allowed in certain circumstances. If I am to display the flag in any way, I want to do in correctly! Thanks for the information on an easy to follow site! Cheryl

anonymous, memphis, tn [06-11-2003]

Questions: What is the "proper" illumination for a flag that is displayed 24 hours a day? Is a street light approximately 20 - 25 feet away, the "proper" illumination? Or is a light positioned at the bottom of the flag pole shining up on the flag the "proper" illumination? If the flag is going to be displayed 24 hours a day - is the proper way: The all-weather flag - with a light positioned at the bottom of the flag pole shining up on the flag? Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for this web site. For several minutes now I've been sitting here trying to find the proper words to express my love for our flag and the heartfelt meaning it has to me. So far I have not thought of any words that could come close to the greatness of that love. This happens in only two other instances for me and that is when I try to describe my love for God or my love for my wife. Simply, there are no words great enough. I can tell you this. In the past, many of my family and friends gladly gave up their lives or parts of their bodies for Freedom’s sake and the Idea that formed and made this great country of ours. And so, so very many more of them have and are still yet freely placing their lives in jeopardy for the sake of God, their families, our country and freedom. May God bless them, as there is no greater love that they could offer than that of their own lives. There are so many other things that instantly flash through my mind whenever I see our flag. Far too many thoughts to put to paper for the moment. So my thoughts are still too overwhelming to find the proper words to describe the meanings our flag represent to me. With all our problems and trials as our country continues to grow, I am thankful for our National Ensign and think this flag represents the best. For the above reasons I do get a bit perturbed when I see the flag displayed improperly. I know that there is no disrespect intended by most of the improper flag displaying. And for this single reason I and very thankful for this web site. By using this site I can help my friends to honor the flag the way they intended. Sincerely, Reggie Morgan Jr. A Patriot.

I am impressed with the foundation and hve it on my "favorites" list. I have a certificate #23885 that was initiated by my great-grandfather(a Civil War Vet)dated 1917, along with a very large painting of the picture of Betsy Ross making the flag identical to the certificate picture. This was given to me by my grandmother before she passed away in 1960.

The page http://www.ushistory.org/betsy/more/folds.htm contains the following text, attempting to determine the age of the listed flag folding ceremony: "We have not been successful in discovering its origin or authorship. However, according to Encyclopedia Britannica, Mother's Day, which is mentioned in the ceremony, was first observed in 1908." Another reference you could choose to make there would be the inclusion of the the phrase "under God" in fold #6, which would seem to indicate a creation date after 1954 - when that phrase was added to the pledge.
Eric Sanders, Milwaukee, WI USA [05-14-2003]

My parents visited Betsy's house about a month ago, and took a picture of her bedroom. In the picture, an old woman's head appeared in between the curtains that go around the bed; it is clearly not my mother,as you can see her reflection in the glass, or my father, as he was taking the picture and has a flash reflection, and there was no one else in the room. I was wondering if you have had any 'sightings' like this before? We are not into the whole ghost-thing, but have no way of explaining it. If you would like to view the picture, PLEASE email me back with an email address and I will send it ASAP. Thanks!

Hi, I am a Cubmaster for a local Cub Scout pack. A few weeks ago we had a meeting with all the leaders and a disagreement over the flag arose. The issue was marching in a parade with a flag having only 48 stars. I stated my opinion, that we needed a flag that had 50 stars, to represent all fifty states. I was told by the other leaders that this was not true, that we could use the 48 star flag. So, I am doing research on this issue. I did find a question and answer on this site stating that it is okay to fly a historic flag. However, I feel this contradicts Title 4, Chapter 1: Sec. 1 and 2, that is also found on this site. This section deals with the adding of stars to the union field. At the time Title 4 was written there were 48 states. I feel strong about having the flag representing the nation as a whole --all 50 states. I have no problem with the historic flags for private collections, I own three historic flags myself. I don't believe historic flags should be flown in public areas. I am looking for some guidance. Do I go along with the other leaders and march in the parade with a 48 star flag or insist on a 50 star flag?

i love this web site and i like that you have a lot of info. on a lot of stuff and that right now in english we are doing a biblography. and i picked BETSY ROSS the reason i picked her was because i read about her an 3rd grade and still have the book called" BETSY ROSS DESIGNER OF OR FLAG" we were all on the interrnet (my classmates) and i was asking people do you know who BETSY ROSS is and a lot of them said"no". i was like WOW peopl dont know who desined out flag and i got a little more interested about how to tell people about her and i so far have 3 pages on her and i have a lot more than any body in my class the reason i have so much is because of the peeople that made the web sites on her and now i got a lot of stuff and i gust want to share so thank you for your help and i LOVE BETSY ROSS !

Trying to find an arm patch of the first American Flag that had 13 stars on it. Have found plenty of companies with regular American Flag Patches, but not one that has the 13 stars in a circle. If you know of a company that makes this, would love to hear.

mac, mi [05-02-2003]

This is a great website! I got the link from the Girl Scouts website. Our Brownie troop is working to earn a Try-it patch called Wave the Flag and I needed some information to satisfy some of the requirements. I got everything I needed and more. Not only the story of the flag but the trivia questions, flag gallery and printable coloring page will make great troop activities. I will definitely recommend this site not just to other Girl Scouts but also my daughter's teachers and school librarian in case they don't already know about it. Thank you!
