Betsy Ross – 4oz.

$12.00

One of the most iconic women of the American revolution is a Philadelphia seamstress named Betsy Ross. She was commissioned to sew the first flag for the new Republic by none other than General Washington, himself. Betsy Ross agreed to the work after altering the proposed design while demonstrating the ease of making 5-point stars with just one scissors snip!
Actually, the story of Betsy Ross wasn’t added into the country’s historic narrative until nearly 100 years after The Declaration of Independence. Ross’ grandson, William Canby, presented his claim along with affidavits from family members to the Pennsylvania Historical Society in 1870. Perhaps owing to the patriotic fervor surrounding the imminent American Centennial, the story of the plucky seamstress was accepted as fact. There are receipts for many flags that Betsy and her daughters did sew for the United States into the early 19th century — just not the original one.
While the historic record does not support the legend, Ross’ name is inextricably tied to the design and creation of the very first “Stars and Stripes”.  Loose Lady Tea Co. has now linked Betsy Ross to another iconic symbol of the United States: apple pie!  This Lady of LiberTEA will bring the sweet, refreshing taste of apples and warm cinnamon-sugary goodness to every sip. Whether you head to the back patio or the sandlot, invite Betsy to celebrate ALL things American.
