In the wake of the tragic events of September 11th, we have seen Americans display their solidarity by flying U.S. flags everywhere. From front porches to car antennas to freeway overpasses the flag is prevalent — and that provides an opportunity to discuss its origins and meaning with our children. At this site you can take a virtual tour of the house where Betsy Ross lived. Betsy Ross is the woman who sewed the first flag for the United States of America. You can also read her biography including the account of how she came to sew the flag. This site also provides a timeline of the changes made to the flag throughout history, flag trivia, and flag laws and etiquette. In addition, you can download a picture of Betsy Ross, a picture of the flag, and you can also purchase flags at this site.
