Overview

Betsy Ross by Peter Roop

This unique biography of Betsy Ross tells the exciting story of her life using real letters, speeches, and accounts from her family.

"The flag was soon finished, and Betsy returned it, the first 'Star Spangled Banner' that ever floated up on the breeze..."

With these words, William Canby told how his grandmother Betsy Ross sewed the first American flag. While no one has proven his words to be true, Betsy's fame as American's first flag-maker has spread all over the world. Betsy Ross--businesswoman, wife, mother, and American patriot--led a fascinating life in Philadelphia during our nation's birth.

Kids will find out about Betsy Ross's life and the American fight for independence in this brand-new biography.
