Rate this:
In the spring of 1776, George Washington stopped at Betsy Ross's little upholstery shop and asked her to sew a flag - a flag that would unite the thirteen colonies in their fight for independence from Great Britain.In Judith St. George's detailed account, Betsy Ross emerges as a strong and spirited woman. Her independent streak led her to marry outside her Quaker faith and served her well throughout her life: widowed three times and the mother of seven daughters, she maintained her own business for more than fifty years.Here is the inspiring story of one of the courageous and self-reliant women who shaped American history: the "patriot of Philadelphia" who created the banner that helped unite the nation.
