Betsy Ross is repeatedly credited with creating the first US flag. Students often learn that when they're first studying American history. However, most historians agree that she probably didn't! In fact, Ross's grandson may have made up the story. After reading about this widespread American myth, readers will be eager to learn others. This valuable volume, full of fun fact boxes and beautiful images, exposes historical myths but also explains the facts behind them, making it an excellent resource for any social studies collection.
