Flag Day: The First American Flag

Flag Day. There are many theories surrounding the birth of the first American flag.  According to US-Flag.net, the one that seems most probable is; Betsy Ross, a known seamstress, was called upon by three members of a Committee from the Continental Congress in May 1776. George Washington, Robert Morris, and George Ross, asked Betsy to sew the first US flag, from a design they had created.

    I had a breast augmentation with a lift and I am very pleased with how it turned out. I think Dr. Bashioum and his his staff are the best. They really do care about you and when you call there they know who you are. I’d recommend Dr. Bashioum to whoever is thinking about having surgery. I am happy i went to him because i think he did a superb job. I waited a long time to look and feel better about myself and i know i went to the right place.
