The Betsy Ross House. #phillystreets #historicphiladelphia
When the British occupied Philadelphia from 1777-1778, Betsy didn’t let that stop her! She continued to support the Patriot cause, risking her life by packing musket cartridges with lead mini balls and black powder in the cellar off of her home, under the cover of darkness, with a dangerous candle flame to illuminate her work 🕯 Discover Betsy’s story today at 239 Arch Street in #HistoricPhilly ! #LittleRebel . . . . . #BetsyRossHouse #MeetBetsyRoss #BetsyRoss #ColonialPhiladelphia #OldCityPhilly #VisitPhilly #DiscoverPHL #HistoricPhilly #HistoricPhiladelphia #VisitPA #AmericanHistory #ColonialAmerica #AmericanRevolution #WomensHistory #AmericanFlag #StarsAndStripes #Craft #Sewing #Upholstery #Embroidery #sewingcraft #embroideryart #ThisPlaceMatters #PreservationHappensHere #HouseMuseum #BeBrave
