Jo Regan, Tempe, AZ [08-09-2005]

I read about your website in the American legion magazine. It was in an article discussing cutting a perfect 5 point star in one snip. I thank God he gave me birth in this wonderful country. A land that produced such hero's as Betsy Ross.
Gary Todd, Thompsonville,Il. [08-09-2005]

what was the size of the original flag?
cathy cox, winter park fl [08-09-2005]

I've viewed many web sites over the years since I have had a computer. Yours is one of the best I've seem. Keep up the good work! My eleven year old grandson is a home learning student and I've sent him and his parents copies of information I viewed on your web site to help further his education. I told his parents about your web site also.

I can't believe how easy it is to make the star. I have learned a bit of history in doing so and will share it all with others.

A very interesting site. I found the address in the Military Magazine and had to see it. Thanks for a piece of history. Don
Donald A Jensen-PCLA, Cudahy, WI 53110 [08-02-2005]

I learned about this site through the American Legion Magazine and am very impressed. I am retired and volunteer at an elementary school with 5th graders. I shall use much of this info with these children. I served in the USAF during the Korean War, althought I did not go to Korea.
James L. Robinson, Redmond, WA [08-02-2005]

It's good to see a site that shows both the right and left shoulder patch... many sites don't include that. Keep up the good work.

kelly sparks, Huntsville, AL. [07-26-2005]

My great uncle, whom is a World War II veteran, recently gave his thoughts on what The American Flag means to him. It is absolutely beautiful what he wrote. I would like to frame it on paper that has a 'patriotic' border. Does this go against any of the flag rules? As I did research today, it just makes me more and more proud to be an American.
Ginger, Charlotte, NC [07-26-2005]

After watching the tour on my computer we are taking are grandchildren to Philadelphia to see the flag
Joan Baranowski, Swatara Pa. Dauphin County [07-26-2005]

The Star in One Snip is Great! My Grandchildren will love to see it when I teach them how to make it.
Tom Kliber, Springboro, PA [07-26-2005]

Refered to this site by the American Legion Magazine Aug 05 issue. Took a few tries as the address as shown didn't work. It was worth waiting for... very interesting and informative site thanks for your efforts.
Jesse Soper, Chicago IL [07-26-2005]

I used to visit historical Philadelphia as a child on school trips. I always remember the sense of being transported to a magical time and place during the birth of this great nation. I'd like to be able to purchase gifts online, is that something you are considering making available?
Skittles, Audubon, PA [07-26-2005]

Mercedes, Illionis [07-20-2005]

We visited Betsy at her house a few weeks ago. She gave a demonstration of cutting the star with only one snip. However, I could not remember the proper creases and folds. Thanks so much for putting it on the web site. I have made a perfect star and now I can show it to my grand- daughters.
Delores Phelan, Ruidoso Downs NM [07-20-2005]

In Henry County, in McDonough, GA, many friends who act have gathered to create Revolutionary War History in honour of celebrating July 4. This year was the first time at this park. Half way through, I asked to be Betsy Ross. It was approved. Betsy will be there every year and will promote the American FLag.
Donna Stewart, LaGrange, GA 30240 [07-19-2005]

This is a wonderful site. Those who do not want to accept the accounts of Betsy Ross' family seem to be professional doubters.
Peter M. Keltch, Oklahoma City, OK [07-19-2005]

As a member of the Sons of the American Revolution, I urge passage of the "Flag Desecration Amendment" now before the Congress. Burning "Old Glory" is no more freedom of speech (or expression, as the ACLU would have you believe) than is mooning the oncoming traffic.
Edward N. Casey, Fort Pierce, Florida [07-19-2005]

Excellent site. I especially enjoyed the flag-stamp observation. A few years ago I attempted to research the cost to the U.S. Government the legal process of exempting the "Flag Stamps" from the "temporary use and discard" section of the U.S. Flag Code. To my chagrin I learned the stamps were never officially exempted (a MAJOR embarassment to the U.S. Post Office). But then "Old Navy" and "Old Glory" seem to go hand-in-hand. Captain William Driver was in the "Old Navy" -- (i.e. The Doggett, his ship, sailed to the Pitcairn Islands). He did subsequently identify the flag as "Old Glory." Could a modern day descendent of his have a hand in the formation of the clothing store which interfaces the two? Hmmm-- I wonder.
Jerrell L. Driver, Ph.D., Cape Girardeau, MO [07-19-2005]

I have recently inherited custodianship of our family bible and many papers dating back 200 years. Among the papers I have found the bottom half of a certificate from your organization to an ancestor of mine. The certificate # is 50709 issued in 1899. At that time John Quincy Adams was apparently the secretary of your organization and his signature is on the paper. The certificate is made out to Sarah D. Lenardson of E. Providence, R.I. I am very interesdted in finding out more about your organization and what( if any) role my great great(?) aunt had to do with it.
toya Doran gabeler, 1875 S. Beverly Geln Blvd. #103, L.A.,Ca. 90025 [07-14-2005]

Love our American History and love this site!
Karen Tyler, Lou, Ky 40206 [07-14-2005]

I am looking at this site to help my grandson learn more about our country's history. The founding fathers are usually first on the list to be studied but I want him to know more about the women who contributed to the building of our early nation especially in light of the new government in Iraq.
Karen, Denver, Colorado [07-14-2005]

I was told by the condominium association were I live that I can not fly my american flag.

nicolas parker [07-12-2005]

Thank you for the illustrations on displaying the flag. I've been to another website and the directions for displaying the flag horizontally weren't very clear. A picture is indeed "worth a thousand words." Thanks.
Kathy, Chocowinity, NC [07-12-2005]

You're website looks very good, it was a pleasure to be on you're. Keep on the good work :-)
Tomas Karlsson, usa [07-11-2005]

We very much enjoyed your site. We love America. We were looking for the proper way to display our flag flatly.

A very exciting site to visit and one that is always needed. The U.S. Flag is one of our highest symbol's of freedom. I fly my flag all the time to show who I am. We are a free people. So many have paid the highest price for this very simple piece of cloth and just so I could sit here right now and say this very thing. Even the idea of making this most valuble symbol for our young nation in those early days, all the hardships that they went through and so, yes "These are the times that try men's souls" There are two things that we look up to the sky for, Our Lord and our United States Flag. Even today after the terrible bombings in London, England. So many have lost their lives for this piece of simple cloth. And that's because it means so much. When you hear the song that goes so very well with this simple piece of cloth, The Star Spangled Banner, if your a real American, you will tear up when it raises to the top of the flag pole and cry and become angry when you see it burning in the middle of some road oversea's somewhere. But it just lifts your spirit so when it appears and you can't help but to think what this simple piece of cloth has went through and what it has done for this great Nation from it's start. To lift up our hearts for who we are. We are FREE Americans. Thank you so very much for this simple piece of cloth! Keep up the good work and God Bless The USA
Sam, Union, Ohio [07-08-2005]

This site is GREAT!
Stephany [07-07-2005]

On July 4th a group of local home schooled children presented a short play based on Betsy Ross. During the play they cut the "perfect 5 point star" as suggested. The community-wide audience loved it! Your influence is deeply appreciated.
Carole, wichita falls, texas [07-07-2005]

I have a question. Our small city just lost a marine in Iraq. Everyone flew their flags at half staff. Obviously it wasn't ordered by the president. This was done out of respect for him and his family. Any problem with that?
Julie Lemke, Strongsville, Ohio [07-07-2005]

is there a formula to determine the hieght a flag should be flown on a vertical pole above the horizontal surface it is mounted to; ground level, roof of a building, etc. acording to flag size
greg frazee, bakersfield, ca. [07-07-2005]

I did a google search and spotted my grandmothers name on this website does anyone know where the idea that she might be related to Betsy Ross came from I would be interested to hear from you. Thank you

07-04-05 We have so very much to be Thankful for. We Pray that as we celebrate this Historic Event, we all will stop and realise just what our Freedom has Cost, and who has Paid for it. My Husband is one of the Ones that Served in the Air Force during the Korean War--I want to say "Thank You, R.C. for your service to help Keep Us Free." GOD has been so Good to allow us to Live in such a Wonderful World. There is so much to see, do and Enjoy. Please take Advantage of some of His Marvelious Blessings today--and every day. "KEEP YOUR EYES ON JESUS!"
FRANCES & R.C. CREWS, folkston, ga. [07-05-2005]

lamonteriajohnson, gainesvilleflorida [06-30-2005]

I love the site! I not only learned about Betsy Ross but also some information about the American Flag and how it should be displayed. It was quite interesting. I did, however have a question. I read here that the reason a flag is depicted "backward" on planes an uniforms so that it looks like it is flying in the wind. Someone in my family who was a Marine once told me that the reason it was done was so that if during war time, an enemy shoots down a plane, attempts to kill an american soldier or tries to rip the patch off and destroy it, soldiers wont be so hurt by it because, technically, it wasnt the "true" flag. Is this true? Thank You

Josie [06-28-2005]

I read the comments by liberal judges and politicians with dismay. My father and our fathers, myself and now my two Marine sons have fought where we did not wish to be and when we did not wish to be there for the freedoms represented to us by this flag. The Menorah is not mine, but I would never disrespect it or hurt it. The symbols of Islam are not mine, but I respect them as I do my own symbols...chief of which is the Flag of my country. I will never agree that some coward who has no values possesses the right to desecrate the flag which I love and revere. Point out, if you please, the point where the freedom of one who has no values overshadows the rights of those who cherish symbols to have those symbols respected in their presence. Patriotism should not be enforced, as Governor Ventura said, but the symbols and articles of faith and values of others must be respected. If some of these fools were willing to put their vanities aside for the good of the country I would have more respect for their disrespect. Strangely enough, the loudest and brashest of the morons are usually those who will never put aside their comforts and safety to protect the Nation. They allow others of us that privilege and then make fun of us and our Flag.

Yvonne H. Parsons, Thompson Falls, Montana [06-28-2005]

kiana, chester,pa [06-28-2005]

I am not a direct descendent of Betsy Ross, but am a direct descendent of her first husband John Ross, the man who gave her the name of "Ross" that has become so famous in American history. This line of the Ross family and therefore descendents is very large, so, if your name is Ross originating from Philadelphia, Delaware, or Virginia, and perhaps other states in that area, you too may well be related to her first husband who served and died in the Revolutionary War. Likewise, you are also related as I am to George Ross who signed the Declaration of Independence.

I've visited Betsy's house twice. I wish more Americans could rediscover our nation's history by exploring these types of simple "monuments." It makes it all so much more real!
Cyndy Armstrong, Washougal, WA [06-20-2005]

My friend Claire is related to Betsy Ross
Hadley, Brookline, MA USA [06-20-2005]

I always thought that in a church, when the flags were behind the minister they should be reversed (the Christian flag on the right and the American flag on the left). And then when they are brought in front of the minister they are switched (American flag on the right and Christian flag on the left of the minister. Is this correct ?

Angelica capers, Fairfield,california [06-03-2005]

Is the way that Besty Ross displays the flag in the picture you provide a violation of the flag that should not be touching the ground or anything below it? I was a little shocked to see that. Or does she have special permission because she sewed the flag? Or was the rule made later after she sewed it? Thanks

Betsy was a pretty good lady, she taught me that men are better than women, and women can't do anything right. George Washington wanted six pointed stars and Betsy, being a woman, did it all wrong, she made five pointed stars

My daughter and I visited Philadelphia in mid April to attend Drexel University’s accepted students day. We had a very brief opportunity to visit the historic area. We had no idea how many historically significant sites are present within such a small area. Unfortunately we arrived at about the time that everything was closing for the day. Hopefully we will have additional opportunities to see all of the sites including Betsy Ross House from the inside.

My mother has a framed picture of Betsy Ross and a couple of gentleman are in the picture as she is sewing the flag. It is actually an honorable certificate to my grandfather's great great grandfather. It has a seal on it that you can feel with your fingers and is dated and signed.

I saw the rule against any writing on the flag, however I do not see the personalization of a funeral flag as disrespecful. I noticed Betsy did not keep the flag off the floor as she sewed it.

I have just visited your section on flag rules. I have an encredable love and respect for the American flag. When I was 6 yrs old my older brother did a research on the rules of the flag. Since then I have been very verbal about flags that are flown incorrectly to the point that I will tell a manager of a store that it is not correct etc. I appreciate the sight and I will keep it in mind the next time I have a question about the rules of the flag. In fact I will also give this information to my boys cub scout den. Thank you for the good information.

I am a US Immigrant for the last 11 years and I have applied for my US Citizenship and the USCIS have scheduled me for my interview and test on May 2,2005. I am so excited and tried visiting all the possible websites including yours to gather some infos about the US History. I am looking forward and hoping that all I learned from your website so as the others will help me a lot on my interview and test for my citizenship. Again thanks for giving all the people the chance to learn more about our flag.
Celedonia J. Cruz, Fort Worth, TX. USA [04-12-2005]

Betsy Ross was an awesome lady! She worked hard as a young girl from the age of 12, was a faithful patriot as a young woman who made a contribution to her country in designing and making the first flag, and despite hardships in her life - outliving her parents, three husbands, sister, and some of her own daughters, she lived to be 84 after retiring from her work as a seamstress at 75. This happened in the days when women had very little rights, whose opinions were not often accepted or implemented and few women were able to keep sucessful businesses. Today young and old people can be inspired by Bety Ross' life. America offers much freedom still, most people see that and are thankful.

Elizabeth (Betsy) ROSS was born between 1782 and 1785
Cassie Lake, New Hampshire [04-12-2005]

Betsy Ross is soooooooooooooo interesting. Did you Know:Betsy Ross was born with a fully formed set of teeth. Betsy Ross's other contribution to the American Revolution, beside sewing the first American flag, was running a munitions factory in her basement. The only real person to be a Pez head was Betsy Ross
