July 5th is a nice time to show some of the pictures we took in Philadelphia back in May when we were there. That's a city that exudes patriotism. We enjoyed our time at the Benjamin Franklin Museum and I got to visit the Betsy Ross Home. We took a tour of Independence Hall and got to catch a glimpse of the Liberty Bell. And everyone needs to get a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich while they're there.
Betsy Ross was probably the first famous American seamstress. She is well known for making the first American flag. She was responsible for coming up with the idea of putting the five-pointed stars on the flag. Quilters today love to applique and sew five-pointed stars on nearly everything!
This is a 15 minute kindle book by Caitlind Alexander about the life of Betsy Ross. It's amazing what a person can learn in just 15 minutes. I loved finding out more about her.
