4th of July Fun

Since we’re still a little groggy from the holiday, let’s play a bit more with 4th of July trivia and silliness.


What do the colors on the flag mean?
http://www.usflag.org/colors.html
White signifies purity and innocence, Red, hardiness & valour, and Blue, the color of the Chief (the broad band above the stripes) signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice.”

How did Betsy Ross get so famous and did she really sew the first flag?
http://www.ushistory.org/betsy/flagpcp.html
Essentially, she was totally unknown until her nephew, who was only 11 when she died, made a proud speech about his grandmother.

Why do we have a 5-pointed star, instead of the six-pointed star that Washington wanted?
http://www.ushistory.org/betsy/flagstar.html
Because Betsy Ross showed him and his emissaries that the 5-pointed star can be made by cutting fabric with one snip of the scissors.
