A couple of weeks ago I received an e-mail from the Gettysburg Flag Works of East Greenbush, New York. They said they were fans of the blog and asked if they could send me one of their flags for my classroom. I love displaying flags in my classroom and started to check out their selection of flags online. They have an incredible selection of flags, including many historical flags from the Revolutionary War and Civil War. I finally made a decision - the Tea Stained Betsy Ross flag.
I received the flag in the mail today and immediately put it on display in my classroom. It was an instant hit with my students. It has the appearance of a historic flag and it a great way to start a discussion about the historical significance of the Betsy Ross flag.
Thanks to the Gettysburg Flag Works for the flag. It is a great addition to our classroom.
