Description
This book is both a richly woven biography of patriot Betsy Ross and a fascinating portrait of everyday life in Revolution-era Philadelphia. A prize-winning historian of the colonial era and a recipient of the Patrick Henry Writing Fellowship, Marla Miller introduces us to a dynamic woman, widowed twice by the Revolution before finally marrying a veteran, who supported her own and her sisters' families as she actively contributed to the nationhood of America.

"Marla Miller's incandescent biography of Betsy Ross is a joy to read.... Miller chronicles the life of a thrice-married woman so vividly that the entire world of women and work, family and church, and war and politics in revolutionary and post-revolutionary Philadelphia comes alive."óGary B. Nash
