The Betsy Ross flag has long been regarded as a symbol of the American Revolution and the young Republic. In the 2008 book The Star-Spangled Banner: The Making of an American Icon, Smithsonian experts point out that William J. Canby’s recounting of the event appealed to Americans eager for stories about the revolution and its heroes and heroines. Betsy Ross was promoted as a patriotic role model for young girls and a symbol of women’s contributions to American history. Historian Laurel Thatcher Ulrich further explored this line of enquiry in a 2007 article, “How Betsy Ross Became Famous: Oral Tradition, Nationalism, and the Invention of History.”
