This in-depth study of art and folklore with museum images and exhibits presents new information to support the essence of the Betsy Ross family story as told by William Canby in 1870. It is now clear that Betsy was a legend in her own time. The 1893 picture, "Birth of Our Nation's Flag" by Charles Weisgerber served to mythologize an exceptional woman at the time when our country was in the grip of patriotic ferver, and her life was idealized.

About the Author:

John B. Harker received his B.A. in Liberal Arts from Temple University, and M.A. in Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. He worked in the field of Personnel as a Management Consultant, helping businesses improve compensation and management practices. After retirement, with a passion for family history, he decided to research the Betsy story to ascertain the facts for himself, where others were dismissing it. He learned that Truth can be elusive, and history is not an exact science.

Review:

Harker brings many new items of evidence into the story, and challenges current thinking about Hopkinson's role. --Richard R. Gideon, American Vexillum June 2005

The five pointed star itself is leading us to the truth, and Harker all but eliminates Hopkinson from consideration. --Douglas Heller, Webmaster Independence Hall Association, June 2005
