BETSY ROSS AND THE MAKING OF AMERICA

by | Read by Dana Green

Biography & Memoir • 19 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Flagmaker Betsy Ross is a major figure in the Revolutionary War, thanks to her family's efforts to preserve her story about her role in the American flag's design. Marla Miller researched the legend and the time in an effort to find out the real story of Betsy Ross. Dana Green reads Miller's book with the tone of an enthusiastic professor, concentrating on the facts as she discusses Ross's life and the many aspects of early American life it touched on. These include Quaker marriages, math in schools, and the upholstery business. The passage of time leaves much of Ross's life to speculation. Still, the book presents an interesting portrait of her era. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2010]
