BLEEECCCCCTTTT. Wrong. On three counts. <G>
1. It was the first flag of the Continental Armies, not even the first
"American" flag and certainly NOT the first US flag.
2. England, France, Spain, and many other countries already had flags.
3. There's no evidence that this myth is true; Yes, there was a
seamstress called Betsy Ross in Philadelphia, but neither her records or
those of ol' skinflint G. Washington indicate she made any flag, ensign
or emblem for him.

Ummm, best clarify that one. Whichever side you're supposed to be on is
the Right Side. Kind of like that book "Why do clocks run clockwise?"
Because, for cryin' out LOUD, whichever direction they run will be CALLED
Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln enjoyed the quiz. <VBG>
