The Legend of Betsy Ross

Almost everyone knows the legend of Betsy Ross and her design of the stars and stripes that became the American flag.

As Betsy Ross prayed in the pew next to George Washington and had already sewn buttons for him, and she was a niece of George Ross, it is not exceptional that these members of the Flag Committee formed by the Continental Congress would call upon Betsy Ross to make the flag.
