PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This newsletter highlights the work of Betsy Ross and Mary Pickersgill. Students will analyze the stamps, postmarks and artwork found on envelopes, known as first day covers. Betsy is commemorated on a stamp, but not Mary. Both women contributed to our history. Why is one a legend, and one not? Did Ross really sew a flag for General Washington? Did she design it? What proof do we have of her involvement? Unlike Ross, Pickersgill is the woman who sewed the gigantic flag that flew over Ft. McHenry during the attack on Baltimore in 1813, but she is forgotten in history. Print off the newsletter and put up on the bulletin board, or use in small group discussion. Social Studies Skills must be practiced.
