Betsy Ross was married in gloucester city. then moved to philladelphia. the tavern she was married in has burnt down now. but the city does have a historical society with tidbits of information. it is amazing where she was raised at.

I have a question about the Flag. What are the acceptable uses for business. Such as I see people and companies selling the image os the flag on stickers and posters all the time. Is this acceptable use and what are the steps one should take to be able to do something like this?

My Grandmothers name was Elizabeth Orena Ross, known as Besty Ross. When her father died and her mother re-married her name became Besty Ross Flagg. She went to elementary school with a boy named George Washington. Just a cute name story. Due to this story I always choose Besty Ross in school to do reports on.

Amber, usa/pa [03-28-2004]

The way I read the flag code only the President or state governor can order the flag to be flown at half-staff. It appears to be pretty common for communities to fly the flag at half-staff when a community leader has died - is this withing the spirit or letter of the code? Although, I am sure they were wonderful people for their communities, flying the flag at half-staff for these people seems to 'cheapen' it for the other reasons we traditionally fly the flag at half-staff.

than you for dissing the flag
linda morris [03-21-2004]

Very interesting ! I learned one thing. I am from Iceland and our club Icelandic American Association of South Florida has a licence plate showing my native flag of Iceland and the US flag crossing on two poles. I thought we had it right having the U.S. flag to the right standing in front of the plate. I was wrong, it should be to the right of itself. I am reordering plates, this will now be corrected in respect of ........ both flags.

Hi, My name is Kelsey Antcliff and I am doing a essa on the american flag.On the paper I got it says the topic is "Every heart beats true for the red,white,and blue-Old Glory" which means the flag.I was thinking that I should do one on Betsy Ross since she was the one who made the flag.I came to this site to get some info but I really don't know what kind of info I should look for? I have to have 250-300 words in the essa. So do you think I should do one on her whole life or just while she was making the flag? Do you have any suggestions?Please email me back if you do. Thank you, Kelsey Antcliff Age 11

There is a flag pole at a marina with a gaff on it. I have been told that the US flag should be flown from the gaff and not from the top of the pole. If this is true could you please send me the supporting documentation as I have not been able to find any. I was under the impression the US flag should be uppermost and the State flag on the gaff.

I'm having a devil of a time finding any information on if it's okay to have a flag tattoo. I know it's not supposed to be "worn," but I'm wanting just a small (quarter-sized) one of the Bennington flag (I'm a bicentennial kid). My understanding of the "no wearing" rule means the flag itself (the one hanging from poles and halyards) shouldn't be used for clothes. Help me out?

Thank you very much for your site. I really enjoyed it. I have just visited the Betsy Ross house in Philly, but learned so much more here (although the real thing is good, too). I am a "guest teacher" in my child's second grade class and I've made up a great lecture this week for our topic of heroes/America/citizenship--mostly using materials from your site. I'm going to tell them kids that I'm making them vexiollogists. One tip--you should look at the directions for cutting a 5 point star in the book "Betsy Ross" by Alexandra Wallner. I was able to follow her directions the third time (I've tried yours several times and have yet to make it work.) The tip I learned from your pattern is to fold the paper in half a second time to assist with lining up the points. Also, looking over the comments you have from other readers of your page, perhaps you should include a suggested reading list (broken down by age). Thanks again. Patty Smith

I reviewed the history of the flags and will be using it for my history class. We are currently studying USHistory/George Washington.

I very much enjoyed the tour of the Betsy Ross Home. Also, the information was excellent about her & her life. My son just did a report on famous women for school & decided to do Betsy Ross & we're so glad that we chose her! What a great story of how our first flag was "born!" God Bless America & Betsy Ross, too! P.S. How dare "Ashley" say that Betsy never made the flag & that she's a fake! What have YOU done "Ashley" that makes you so wonderful? Saying what you said "Ashley" really makes me wonder if you trust in America. HOW DARE YOU!

We are blessed to live in a country of freedom and liberty. We need to strengthen these principles where ever we go and whatever we do as students, workers, parents, members of church. The ethical foundations created by the acquaintences of Ms. Ross call out for active participation in making sure that freedom and liberty remain hallmarks of the American way of life. May you we happy in life and find personal contentment. God Bless America. Dr. Edwin Goldberg NYC

From Daniel (student) and Valerie (mom and teacher): From Valerie: We were so thrilled to find your site on the internet. Our textbook only gave us two paragraphs on Betsy Ross (during our study of the American Revolution) and the concern over the validity of her work. Using your site and reading it thoroughly, we are convinced that this meeting did take place and her right to historial records should be attained once and for all. We genuinely enjoyed "Betsy Ross and the American Flag" the virtual tour, and the Flag Gallery. They were great assets to our class today. Daniel's face was "lit up" through the visits to all areas of the site. Thank you so much. Homeschooling can be so very enlightening and fun because of the availability of sites such as yours! Daniel: I was so very excited to see the Flag Gallery and tour of Mrs. Ross' home. It helped a lot to further understand my studies in American History. Thank you very much for all the work you put into this website. God Bless.

Dear Sirs: More troubling than the Janet Jackson "incident" this past Sunday was the perceived disrespect shown to the US FLAG by halftime performer KID ROCK. I believe that he wore an actual flag, and that he flung it off to someone during his song. If I viewed it correctly, those actions would be in violation of the Flag Rules and Regulations that you publish (Sec. 4 d&j).

I was trying to find some information or background on a copy I have of a print of Betsy Ross, the flag and George Washington.(Famous picture) Actually it is something that was presented to someone in 1902 in Philadelphia PA, from an historical group. It is entitled "Birth of our nations flag". It has a stamp of somekind in the corner. Hard to make out the signature.....Aliah F. Cole ???.......Not in such great condition, just curious on its background...........

Gloria Gellman [02-01-2004]

I'm hoping to find out the meaning of the five-pointed star, and more precisely the meaning of each point. I know that the old $20 gold piece had liberty on its back side with the staff of life in her right hand (King Solomon refers to it as "long life" ) and branches and bolts in her left hand (King Solomon refers to them as "riches and honor). I also know that the serpent is on her staff as a symbol of wisdom to watch her footsteps (the serpent is the symbol of the tree of knowledge in the Garden of Eden). And the other symbol of wisdom is the eagle to watch over her while walking thru life, and of course he is on the other side of the gold piece. Personally, I think the five-pointed star is taken from the old tradition for "reality" of using one point of the star for each of the five senses, and then using the Hebrew star which represents wisdom on the sixth point, but instead our people moved wisdom from George Washington's six pointed star and use the serpent/eagle instead. Notice that liberty is always of the feminine gender, and King Solomon's use of the feminine gender for his wisdom, knowledge, understanding, discretion, insight, and instruction are all well depicted in Proverbs chapters 3, 4, and 5. I know that King Solomon was a gentile king, but he was a son of David, and the celebrated "star of David" has six points, as there are six parts of Solomon's total wisdom package. The old phrase "gems of wisdom" refers to a string of pearls, since pearls are the only true gems, and women are the only wearers of pearls. I would be interested in hearing from you in the hopes of learning whether I'm right or not.

My 7-year old granddaughter, who lives in Washington state, will visit me soon. I want to tell her about Betsy Ross. When I could find no story in a book at home and doubt that I can get out to shop for a young reader's book, I looked up this web site. Last year, I sent her a little surprize gift that she could open when she could tell her parents how many red stripes were in the American flag. During her visit, we may try cutting a five point star in one snip. Thanks for the good information. Jean Freeman P.S. Even some of my Toastmaster friends could not tell the number of red stripes during our fast-paced trivia quiz.

I think that it is a nice and kid friendly site. I have one complaint though. I think that you should make a trivia that people can answer themselfs. Otherwise, it is just boring looking through all of the questions and answers. So, I think that you should make it so that kids are learning about Betsy Ross in a fun way. Anyway, the pictures are great. Where did you get them?
Kate Bailey [01-23-2004]

Could you put a little more about her life?

tina applegate, Texas [01-23-2004]

ushistory it offends me that you took out "under God" in the Pledge of Alliegence so what everybody doesen't believe in God,but I do and so does a lot of people and so I'll write it for you The Pledge of Alliegence I pledge allience to the flag of the United States of America.And to the republic for which it stands one nation under God indivisible for liberty and justice for all. That is how the Pledge of Alliegence is said and you nor anyone else can make me say it differently so can you please add "under God" to it.Please and thank you.

Im in the 10 grade and have to research on someone of the american revolution or anyone that was involved during that time and i decided to do betsy. She seemed to intrest me becuase i had recently found out that i am related to her through my aunt who works at a historical society and did my family history.

I think Betsy Ross is a wonderful, and important part of American History. I just feel in love with her, and chose to do my school report on her. I am glad that it was Betsy who made the flag, and nnot anybody else. Betsy had a great life, and no one can ever forget her! ‹

Hey!
Melissa, nc [01-23-2004]

What is the influence of Betsy Ross? And Mallory Dupont, the answer to your question about how much children she had is that she had two with her second husband, Joseph Ashburn- Zillah who died in her youth and Elizabeth. She had 5 kids with her 3rd and last husband, John Claypoole- Clarissa Sidney, Susannah, Rachel, Jane, and Harriet, who died at 9 months. And she was the 8th child in her family and had 16 brothers and sisters.

I really think it's a good thing to have a women to make things instead of a man all the time. I really like Betsy Ross and I'm gonna learn how to make a flag for my schoo. I'm doing a report on her and I really like what she did maybe you all should put here in Natchez Democrat here in Natchez.

katrinabentley, monticello,ky united states [01-23-2004]

> I thought it really said a lot of valuable information and it taught kids the truth about Betsy Ross. My suggestion for improvment would be to state the authors name on the homepage, because I did this for a project and I needed the authors name and it did not state it and I lost some valuable points just because I didn't have the authors name of this webpage. Thank you a lot you do have very accurate information that is very valuable for projects like mine on Betsy Ross.

If you know of any other sites that could help us so some respcet to the historical events in your history. It would be greatly appreciated any help you can give us. If you would like to check out your website and see what we are all about and Photos of your parade this year and last year. We are looking to come to see her house and get a better look at the details for the float. When is a good time to tour the house, maybe we will be coming down there in the summer not sure about the weather.I'm the Float Coordinator and is also looking for ideas and details for the floats. thank you for your help in advance.

Quite interesting website. I am glad I found it. My wife is a color guard for one of the local Colonial Fyfe and Drum Companies for Parades and Revolutinary War re-enactment. She carries the Betsy Ross flag and is so very proud of it. So she asked me to find out as much as possible about Betsy Ross and how the flag came about.

Does anyone actually read these things... word up to Betsy Ross. Oh and guess what my Nana has two certificats, one that has been dated at 1899 and says the person my Nanas relitive was part of the American Flag House and Betsy Ross Association, the other certificat says United Boys Brigades and dated to 1910.So if you have info to give me about these peices of history i would appreciate it!Warning these certificates are not for sale! P.S. if you are part of this web page or work as a historian on Betsy Ross, I will be pleased to hear how to take care of the certificates and learn about these assosiations and how my relitive was able to contribute=:)
