I have been a teacher of American history for many years. I now work as an ESL teacher. I see our country's history eroding away day by day. I want to see American history take its rightful place in our schools. It is not seen as very important these days. I say a country without knowledge of where it came from is doomed. Thanks for a great site and a chance to see part of our American heritage.

Today is memorial day and I just attended a beautiful service honoring our veterans. There were over 460 American Flags on display and it takes my breath away. My daughter asked me, "Where is the first American Flag? Is it in the White House?" I wasn't sure of the answer, so I decided to do research to try and find the answer. Always remember, Freedom isn't free.

My great grandfather William Carpenter was according to family history supposed to be related to Betsy Ross. He was a great grandson. Have never proved this as I know very little about him. A postcard found last year from a Clarence Carpenter (possibly an Uncle or brother?) dated 1907 said "The first American Flag was made by my Great Grandmother Betsy Ross at 239 Arch Street, Philadelphia, PA. Copy made by me. I presented to Charles ? Smith of the "Sons of the Revolution and Pioneers" in saving the home. Ass. Superintendent of Sarah M Wilson Independence Hall. dated 6.14.96 (1896) The card itself is copyright 1906. As I know nothing about my great grandfather I thought I would send this and hope that someone may have some info on what was presented and who Clarence Carpenter might be. Thank you Jeanette Burt.

I bet Ms. Betsy Ross was just a common human being wanting to do whatever she could to help the cause. And now centuries later, she has got to be one of the most, if not the most, famous women in American History. Go Betsy! Go Betsy!
