Born in 1752, Betsy Ross worked as an apprentice for an upholsterer in Philadelphia during the American Revolutionary War. Betsy is widely credited with creating the first American flag in her twenties, after a visit by Continental Army commander-in-chief, General George Washington. In this chalkware piece, we see Bunny Betsy marching with a basket containing “the flag of thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.”
