Back to Betsy Ross

Betsy Ross
By: Erica D.
Indiana, Grade 3



I canít believe that Betsy Ross made her first American Flag for George Washington. After she made her first American Flag two more people asked to see if Betsy Ross could make them one.
Betsy Ross was married to John then to Joseph and she had children. Her job was to make flags for people. She lived at West Jersey, Pennsylvania. She was married to Joseph next because John died. It was important to her because we need a flag to represent our country. She accomplish the first flag for George Washington. Her job was to make flagsí for a lot of people.
Betsy died on January 30. She retired and turned the shop to her daughter Clarissa. I feel so happy that Betsy Ross did all those things in her life and I hope that I can do what she did. She taught me that making flags can be fun!
