Rosalie Frisch, Glenshaw PA 15116 United States [12-14-2003]

Dear Betsy, I realize you have crossed over many years ago. At present we don't have a self-governing people as in your day. Oh that we did. We have someone who is making and selling an incorrect version of your famous flag on Ebay and elsewhere. I am trying to locate the source of manufacture to call them to cease manufacturing something historically incorrect. I have found one source, Creative Coop (.com) I don't know if they are the manufacturer, but they are the (or one of the) distributors. They haven't responded to 3 emails. Oh that I had an army of righteous followers, regulators, that would stand with me in the fight to keep history correct. No one has the right to redesign our historical flags because they think something slapped together looks good to them. I must saddle up now Betsy, and take the fight to the enemy. The same enemy that starts rumors that George Washington really didn't chop down a cherry tree, or throw a dollar across the Potomac, and Thomas Jefferson had slave babies, and Dwight D. Eisenhower had an adultress affair. Our patriots and heroes are slung with mud to undermine the American standard, in an attempt to weaken us and our great country. May it never be said I let it happen without a fight. God rest your sole precious Betsy. I am and always will remain your friend, Steve Solomon

janine, everett, mass [12-14-2003]

I think I may have stumbled upon another Betsy Ross piece. It is approximately three feet long and two feet high. It has thirteen stars above four flags that are crossed withe an eagle in the center holding up a shield with stars and stips on it. The eagle has a glass eye, below the eagle are two berry branches and each of the flags have thirteen stars on them. Over top of the whole work in a twisted bow reads "E PLURIBUS UNIM". I purchased this needlepoit at an auction and it could easilly be well over 200 years old. Do you know if she did any other works? I could send you a picture if you would like. neal

Brittani, Jacksonville,Fl [12-14-2003]

Greetings, Very nice site; informative. I have a question of flag etiquette. I belong to an organization that has a logo that displays the Confederate Stars and Bars on the right side of the logo with the US Flag on the left as viewed as an audience. I have a sweatshirt that has this logo imprinted on the front with the Stars and Bars on the right and the US Flag on the left of the wearer, or presenter. I contend this is backwards and doesn't follow acceptable flag protocol. Do you agree...disagree? Sincerly, Lloyd R Bennett
Lloyd R. Bennett, Jamestown, Kentucky [12-14-2003]

Chealsey, u.s [12-12-2003]

I'm told that there are five places where the US Flag is never removed or flown at half mast, i.e.; the USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor; the Alamo; the moon; Betsy Ross house in Baltimore; and ? Could you please comment.

This is very exciting and educational site.
Paul D. Balge, Waukesha, WI 53186-3877 United States [12-10-2003]

Great website. I love worshipping the flag. In my opinion, the flag gives me and the people something material to worship. It simplifies a whole lot of philosophical, legal, and political science concepts into one neat little rectangular piece of material on which we can concentrate all our group pride emotions, our desires for authority, our desires for spirituality, our desires for some higher entity. Some Christians think it's wrong to wave the crucifix because it implies that God is simple when He is in fact infinitely complex and beyond human comprehension. In the same way, the flag simplifies the concept of nationality so that we can market the idea to young ones very easily.
S.U. [12-10-2003]

I have a flag etiquette question. My friend says that the American Flag should always be flown on a pole with a eagle on top, I say the pole top is not an issue, it could be a silver ball, gold eagle, or nothing. Please advise. thank you Jim Hadden

SHELBY, lOWA [11-30-2003]

After 9/11 we hung the fall draped on the casket of my father in law who served in the Navy in WWII. After repeated tries to refold the flag 2 years and some months later we accessed this most informative website and found out we were to have 13 triangular folds -- not the 14 we kept coming up with by pulling too tight. Thank you. I also learned that my 21 year old son is a vexillologist.

Liberty, Love, Freedom, Peace and Happiness. That is what the United States repersents.
Becca, 14 and a proud American [11-29-2003]

I think your web-sight is very good, and is very informative. I do think that you should also add the axact wording of fromer President George Bush concerning the desicration of the flag. It is illeagle to desicrate the "american Flag", and you will be charged if caught desicrating the flag of the United States of America. I wish I could give you the exact wording, but I am still looking for them.
Terrell Ducote, Hessmer [11-27-2003]

I like your website! In my history class we have to pick a famous American and do a report on him/her. I chose Betsy Ross, and this website has been really helpful! Thanks, Liz

hello this is a grand website
bob [11-25-2003]

I really enjoyed learning about Betsy Ross, she is a great role model. She sets a good example for all women after her. She is a very special person in everybodys' life. In fact, if it wasn't for her, we probably wouldn't have a 'grand ole flag'. Everytime I hear the name 'Betsy Ross', I think of that song: You're a Grand Ole Flag, You're a high flyin' flag, And forever in peace may you wave. You're the emblem of the land I love, The home of the free and the brave. Every heart beats true neath the red, white, and blue, Where there's never a boast or a brag, Should Auld Aquantince be forgot, Keep your eye on that Grand Ole Flag. I love that social studies teacher is very patriotic and would love to know as much information on Betsy Ross as possible. Her whole entire classroom has American flags and the colors of the American flags all over it. I liked looking at your website and I bet she would too!

Thru the ages, I've heard that my family is related to Betsy Ross, but now I realize if this is true, it is by marriage as I have traced back to the Ross family name but not back to John or George yet. I am still working on this.

Hey Sir or Madam: I am doing a project on the flags of the American Revolution. I am doing a report on Stars and Stripes, adopted June 14,1777, and Union Jack, used during the Revolution. I have not found hardly any information on either of the two. Please could you email me some information on both of the flags. (exp. who made them, who made them issued, basically the history on them.) This would greatly help me in my report. Any information given will not be plagarized.

Upon which lapel should men wear a flag pin? I've seen public officials wear the flag on their left lapel. This seems to contradict the guideline to present the flag on the speaker's right, viewer's left. Is there a code reference for wearing a flag pin? Thanks in advance, Bob Huddleston

I am looking for a song I heard in the 60s while I was an elementary school student that went like this: "Said Washington to Betsy Ross, a flag our nation needs, To lead our loyal soldiers on to brave and noble deeds. So can you make one for us, To which she made reply, "I am not certain that I can, but at least I'll gladly try." So she took some red, for the blood they shed, some blue for loyalty. I can't remember it all, but would like to find the lyrics and the accompaniment/melody if anyone has it. Thanks.

i am more excited about learning what i have about our flag. it seems that no one around me was more concerned about the united states flag, until 9/11. and since my child is in a grade level, that it is more important now than ever to let her in on, who she is and why it is important to let her know that,she is not only a child of god,but is also an american.(alexis crayton-3rd grade/pierce street elementary)

I like this site a lot, especially this part because I just did a whole humongus report and everything on Betsy Ross. It was really fun to learn about her, and this site helped me a little and made it more fun for me to learn about her. I really love learning about the people of our history, and Betsy Ross was so far my most favorite.

Karen Jack, Grand Rapids, MI [09-24-2003]

Thank you for the interesting info on this site. Here in Tulsa, at a ball game, 2 flags were flown. While all faced the one presented by color guard in the center of the field the home football team faced a flag over on the school grounds. This made the football team have their backs to the flag being presented by the color guard. Was this appropriate?

My person is obvioulsy Betsy Ross. This site has helped me a great deal! You see, with the report, we have to get up in front of the class, wearing the clothing of that person, and talk about our person as if we were them! I couldn't find a picture of her anywher.Thank you so much for helping me!

I think her house was very nice, but very untidy. She had a lot of nice things. I liked her bed. The flower print was intresting. I liked how you had some of the things she made in her house. The flag was very out of shape but it was made like 50 years ago. I really like it. I hope you will be able to restore the house some day to make it look like it once did.

Eric and Shannon Kurasaka, Glendale, Arizona [09-17-2003]

I love your site, but I don't think that the depiction of the flag with words in it seems to be in violation of the flag laws-etiquette. Just go to flag laws-etiquette on the flag, then go to Title 4 chapter 1 section 8-g and it says " The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any ... word... or drawing of any nature." After reading this chapter and the other things from this site I have learned a lot! I must now go make some changes around my house to not be in violation of the flag laws myself! Thanks for the great site, but I hope you fix this little violation.

What a wonderful site! I'm Northeast Commissioner for Clan Ross Assn of the U.S. I am preparing materials for the Clan Ross tent at the New Hampshire Highland Games Sept 19-21. I adapted your "color the Betsy Ross flag" idea for a handout to kids at the Games. I also printed out the full-color flag and picture of Betsy Ross et al, and am using it on a display called "Ross Hall of Fame" that I'll hang on one wall. I may do some other things, too. You've provided fantastic material for creativity! Thank you! Paula Ross Reynolds

In reading the US Flag Code reference is made to the President and the Governors of States as persons who give consent. How does this work and for whom is it appropriate to fly a half mast flag and when would it not be appropriate. I am asking this because recently a school was critised by Veterns group for flying the flag at half mast for three young people in the community who were killed in a car accident.

I have just purchased two 48 star flags at an auction. I would like to present one to my father A WWII Marine who lost his older brother, Which was in the U.S. Army during the war. My questions to you is this the correct flag for that time? And what is the best way to clean these flags which are 100% cotton. I would be very greatful for any information. The original flag which was presented to his mother & later handed down to the eldest surviving son (ex-Navy WWII) was then passed to one of his sons. My father has all of the medels and awards in a nice case made for that purpose. Once again Thanks Steven G. Thomas U.S.C.G. Ret.

It is certificate # 11100 and was issued in 1903. It is in perfect shape and is in a frame.

Thanks to all the people who spent many hours in research and putting together this website! I'm in charge of a program for my local Business & Professional Women chapter (BPW, a national organization to inspire, promote, and assist women in "being all that they can be"). The program happens to be on Sept. 11 so I suggested a patriotic theme. But rather than rehashing the terrible terrorist activities of two years ago, I wanted to focus on something GOOD. My husband found this website about someone in US history (a woman, naturally!) who made a very real difference -- one we seen almost everywhere we look. This has been a great help to me, and I'm sure our club members will join me in thanks once the program is done!
Sarah Walter, Winneconne, Wisconsin (near Oshkosh) [08-17-2003]

I just learned about Betsy Ross in school today. I visited your website to learn more about her. It is neat to see women who make up our history, since it is mostly men we learn about in social studies. She really impressed those guys way back then - and me today! Thank you for helping me learn more.
Maggie Wilson, St. Peters, MO [08-17-2003]

I purchased today a 34 star U.S. flag to delineate the flag as it existed at the start of the civil war. The new flag's stars are in two circles of equal-size stars, one circle with 15, the second inside the first with 14; there is one star, same size as those in the circles, in each of the four outside corners of the blue field. The 34th star (roughly twice the size of the others) is centered inside the circles. Later, I compared the above flag to an older U.S. flag also with 34 stars. The old flag appears more conventional. Its stars are in two lines of seven stars each, one line of six stars, then two more lines of seven; that is, 7+7+6+7+7. In reviewing flag history, it appears there was no mandatory star arrangement in 1861. Can both of these flags be considered valid, correct, or official? Thanks.
