I did not know about the hardships that Betsy Ross endured during her lifetime. Even at that time, living in America made her circumstances better than living anywhere else in the world. There is nothing more beautiful than the American flag waving in the breeze. May the flag wave forever! God bless America!

Kathleen Wirtanen [06-17-2006]

I wish that schools would tell the colorful story of how Betsey Ross made the first American Flag. I learned (when a youngster) that she had a red petticoat andk took it off and cut it into stripes. What is the real story. I also wish that people singing the Star Spangled Banner would sing it as written. It is a spirited song and should be sung with energy and hope - not the slow vibrato that seems to be so ppopular today with certain groups. JJ
Julie Jeffery, Senior [06-16-2006]

While visiting Philadelphia, I managed to see many historical sights, but unfortunately Betsy Ross' home was closed. I did stand outside the front of the house, it was quite late and marveled in the fact that so much history existed here in this exact spot. Thank you for the opportnity to see it this way.

I am a naturalized American and I love this Country and the American Flag, of course. In my work place I have little American Flags, I am a Chemist and one the flags is a magnet attached to a muffle furnace. I make arrangements with American Flags, one is a tiny mug with 5 American Flags that stands on my work bench. The American Flag means a lot to me. I have a very large, embroidered American Flag in my patio and I don't let it fade I replace it very often. Anna

Is someone living in her house and is the house still up? How old was she when she died? Because in a book it said that when she died she was 78. Is that true.

I would like a grand tour of Betsy Ross's house. I have a few questions. When Betsy sewed the american flag, did she sew the stars in a cicle or in lines like it is now? Did Betsy really ge t married three times? How old is Betsy's house? In books that I am reading, they say that Betsy had three cildren. Is that true? How old was Betsy when she died? Sincerly, Cleo
