Our American Flag Was Designed For A Class Project

Robert G. HeftThe facts behind designing the iconic 50-star flag will surprise you.

Our current design started as a high school assignment. We didn’t have an official flag for the 1776 Declaration of Independence and the original 13-star flag was modified 26 times.

For the official flag to be declared, it took until 1777 when the 2nd Continental Congress passed the Flag Resolution which stated:

Resolved, That the flag of the thirteen United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.”

The flag was also made of hemp and became known as the “Betsy Ross flag” although it’s not confirmed whether or not she actually made it.

In 1795, the number of stars and stripes were increased from 13 to 15 (to reflect the entry of Vermont and Kentucky as states of the Union). This version inspired Francis Scott Key to write “The Star Spangled Banner”

Over time the stripes were reduced to 13 from 15 to honor the original colonies. Eventually we badly needed a new design to increase the number of stars to represent our 50 states. Robert G. Heft, who was only 17 years old, created a flag design in 1958 as a high school class project while living with his grandparents in Ohio.

Heft originally received a B for the design but his teacher, Stanley Pratt, said his grade would be reconsidered if his design was chosen and adopted by presidential proclamation after Alaska and before Hawaii were admitted into the union in 1959.

Once chosen, his teacher changed his grade to an A. Heft has also stated he had copyrighted designs for American flags with 51 to 60 stars. Bob Heft recounted to StoryCorps the tale of his design being chosen among about 1,500 submitted to become the 27th official U.S. flag:

In an American history class, we had to do an outside of class project. We could make or do whatever we wanted, like a science fair or something like that where you bring your project in.

The Betsy Ross story intrigued me.  My Mom and Dad had a 48 star flag they received as a wedding present, which of course meant a lot to them.  Well, I took scissors and cut it up.  I had never sewn in my life.  I watched my mom sew, but I’d never sewn.  And since making the flag of our country, I’ve never sewn again.

So anyhow we get to class, I had my flag on my teacher’s desk.  The teacher said, “What’s this thing on my desk?”  So I got up and approached the desk, and I’m shaking like a leaf and he says “Why have you got too many stars?  You don’t even know how many states we have.”  (He had added more for the potential new states of Alaska and Hawaii being added to the U.S.)  And he gave me the grade of a B-.

Now, a B- wasn’t that bad of a grade.  However, a friend of mine, Jim, picked up 5 leaves off the ground, he’s taping these leaves down to a notebook and labeled them elm, hickory, maple, and the teacher gave him the grade of an A.

I was really upset, teacher said, “If you don’t like your grade, get it accepted into Washington, then come back and see me and I might consider changing your grade.”

Two years later, I’d written 21 letters to the White House, made 18 phone calls, now you can imagine when my mom got the phone bill.  “What’s this number?”  I said, “Well, mom that’s the White House.”

(Though he doesn’t mention it in this specific interview, he mentions in others that he gave his flag to congressman Walter H. Moeller, who then tirelessly promoted it in Washington and was instrumental in getting it accepted)

So anyhow, I got this call and they said “The President of the United States is going to call you later today.”

Well, at that time, Eisenhower was president, and he comes on the phone and he says, “Is this Robert G. Heft?”

And I said, “Yes sir, but you can just call me Bob.”And he says, “I want to know the possibility of you coming to Washington D.C. on July 4th for the official adoption of the new flag.”

And so, I have the grade book encased in plastic…  My teacher said, “I guess if it’s good enough for Washington, it’s good enough for me. I hereby change your grade to an A.”

Shortly after he recorded his story he died on Dec 12, 2009. After his passing he gave his 51 star flag, which he also designed, to Rep. Clarence Miller of Ohio to submit should a new state be added to the union.

Seeing the Statue of Liberty After a Transatlantic Crossing

Statue of Liberty New York HarborOn this day in 1885, the Statue of Liberty arrived in New York Harbor. She symbolized a century of friendship between France and the U.S. and was meant to be a celebration of the American Revolution.

The statue was shipped across the Atlantic in 350 pieces along with instructions on how to put her together. Think of doing a 350 piece puzzle on a very large scale.

Once she was assembled, President Grover Cleveland led the dedication a year later and he became known around the world as the leader who symbolized freedom and democracy.

The engineer Gustave Eiffel modeled the statue after his own mother, however, she didn’t own the crown and torch.

Originally it was copper-colored but over time patination turned it greenish-blue.

The statue became a symbol of hope to the 12 million immigrants that arrived in New York Harbor hoping to start new lives in America.

One of my most memorable experiences was sparked by seeing Lady Liberty. I had worked on a cruise ship for 2 years as photographer. It was a great job since I was 25 and eager to experience other cultures. Although I loved traveling I missed my family and American food.

During the final phase of working on the ship, we sailed across the Atlantic ocean from England to New York. Although we had full amenities I started to get pretty stir crazy and longed to be on solid ground.

The morning that we were scheduled to arrive in New York Harbor all of the crew stood at the front of the ship waiting to see the first glimpse of the Statue of Liberty. It was foggy and when we finally saw her outline in the distance there was a collective gasp from the crew.

The excitement grew as we entered the harbor. People waved at us in nearby boats and we felt welcomed to return home. As we neared the statue the ship’s intercom turned on and we heard the words blast out, “Start spreadin’ the news, I’m leavin’ today” sung by Frank Sinatra. The crew and passengers danced and sang along to the song New York, New York. I suspected the ships next to us could hear all of us singing.

There are a lot of great harbors to sail into such as Sydney, Vancouver and Hong Kong, but nothing compared to that moment of returning to America. I can’t fully comprehend the hardships the early immigrants experienced during their Atlantic crossings but seeing the Statue of Liberty probably became a defining moment in their lives, just as it did mine.

Austin Texas Floods In Minutes – Ask Whole Foods

Made in USA Rain Gauge

Last night the iPhone sounded the flash flood sirens. It’s always unnerving when it does that. Since we have tornadoes in Austin I immediately started thinking about how to get the family, including 3 skittish cats and a 45 lb dog, into the space under the stairs which is already full. Luckily it was only a flash flood. I don’t say that lightly though. Ask Whole Foods.

Whole Foods Market, previously known as Saferway, started in 1980 as the crunchy “health food store.” Remember this was the time of microwave popcorn, packets of Hidden Valley dressing and Chicken McNuggets. We were too busy to cook since both husband and wife were working.

About 7 months after Whole Foods launched, Austin had the worst flood in 75 years and Whole Foods’ entire inventory was soaked to the tune of $400,000. It was the Austin community that quickly helped them recover. My personal theory is that the flood was the catalyst to their empire. Nothing sparks an entrepreneurial drive better than adversity not to mention knowing the community was willing to give them free sweat equity. As you know they are really big now.

Our rain gauge topped out at 5″ but some parts of Central Texas got 13″ of rain. 500 homes were flooded, 60 people had to be rescued from their roofs and 6,500 people were without power. Austin may not have a drop of rain during the unbearable heat of the summer but when it rains, it pours here.

The photo is of the rain gauge in our front yard. Full to the top. The gauge is Made in the USA of course.

5 Tough American Women

We Can Do It

We Can Do It

American women are pioneers, scientists, explorers and fighters for human rights. They are tough as nails and continue to shape and define America. Today we highlight five tough women who pushed the boundaries of their times and continue to inspire women of all ages.

All five stood strong for their missions their entire lives. Gender and age were never factors despite the naysayers or dangers that surrounded them. They never gave up.

 

Calamity Jane

1. Martha Jane Canary ( “Calamity Jane” ) 1852-1903 – Wild Wild West Woman

Martha Jane Canary was unlike any other woman of her time. She was a cursing, gambling and drinking frontierswoman. Her early career was spent as a scout during the Indian Campaign. Although she had to fend off her male counterparts at times the Bozeman Montana newspaper wrote “when cowboys in an Oakes, North Dakota saloon began to ‘chaff’ her, Canary smiled, whipped out two revolvers, shouting, ‘Dance, you tenderfeet, dance.’ Dance they did ‘with much vigor.’ Calamity Jane was not a person to be trifled with.

In addition to being a scout she also worked as a pony express rider, a nurse during the smallpox epidemic, an inn keeper and cattle raiser. At 35 years old she had a baby girl with husband and native Texan Clinton Burk but upon her death she requested to be buried next to her true love – Wild Bill Hickok.

Mary Harris "Mother" Jones

2. Mary Harris “Mother” Jones 1837-1930 – Labor Rights Leader

Mary Harris Jones was an Irish-American who lost everything in the early part of her life. Her husband and 4 children died of yellow fever and her dress making studio was destroyed by fire. Instead of being mentally and financially ruined, she become an early advocate for labor rights.

She organized the Knights of Labor, the United Mine Workers union and co-founded the Industrial Workers of the World.

In 1902 she organized mine workers in order to demand rights from the mine owners and was considered “the most dangerous woman in America.” She also helped organize the railroad workers’ strike in Ohio, women bottlers in Milwaukee, and streetcar workers in Texas and New York. She protested to help men receive a livable wage and made sure women were paid adult wages. She also advocated to enforce child labor laws.

She never stopped fighting for worker rights until her death in 1930.  She stated “My address is like my shoes. It travels with me. I abide where there is a fight against wrong.”

Harriet Tubman

3. Harriet Tubman 1820-1913 – Moses of Her People

Harriet Tubman was born into slavery and at one point nearly died after suffering a severe head injury from a metal weight. Even though she was a slave she was allowed to marry a freeman. She tried unsuccessfully to convince her husband to escape with her to the North so she could gain freedom. He refused and remarried.

Alone, she ran away from a Maryland plantation in the middle of the night and made it to Pennsylvania by way of the underground railroad. When she learned that her family members were going to be sold and split up back in Maryland she returned to the plantation and led them to freedom. For the next 11 years she made 19 more expeditions during the Winter months and rescued 300 slaves.

After President Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, she became the first woman to lead an armed assault during the Civil War due to her knowledge of the area. This assault on plantation owners helped free 700 slaves during the Combahee River Raid.

“There was one of two things I had a right to,” Tubman said, “liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other.”

In her later life she advocated for women’s suffrage working along side Susan B. Anthony and Emily Howland. In 1903 she donated a parcel of real estate to the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church in Auburn to create a home for “aged and indigent colored people.” However, when the church required everyone to pay a $100 entrance fee, she was dismayed.

She later died in the home she helped establish and was buried with military honors at Fort Hill Cemetery in Auburn for her government services.

Annie Peck4. Annie Smith Peck 1850-1935 – Women’s Rights Mountaineer 

Annie Smith Peck was one of the first great American mountaineers. Despite not being allowed in Brown University due to her gender, she left home to attend the University of Michigan. Following her graduation she became the first woman to attend the American School of Classical Studies in Athens, Greece. It was at this time she discovered her love of mountaineering. She climbed Mount Hymettus in Greece, Mount Shasta in the USA, and the Matterhorn on the border of Switzerland and Italy in addition to many other mountains.

She became famous after her Matterhorn climb due to her choice of clothing rather than her climbing achievement. During this time women were arrested for wearing trousers in public and she wore a long tunic, climbing boots and a pair of pants during her summit climb.

At 50 years old, she was the first person to climb Mount Nevado Huascaran in Peru (6768 m) and in 1911 at 61 years old she climbed  Mount Coropuna in Peru. At the peak she placed a “Women’s Vote” banner on the top in support of her fight for Women’s suffrage.

She said, “Climbing is unadulterated hard labor. The only real pleasure is the satisfaction of going where no man has been before and where few can follow.”

Diana Nyad

5. Diana Nyad – Relentless Marathon Swimmer

“The toughest athlete in the world is a 62 year old woman” — D.L. Stewart for the Dayton Daily News

He is talking about American swimmer Diana Nyad, who swam from Havana, Cuba to Key West, Florida.

The first evidence of her fearlessness came about in 1967 when she jumped out of her Emory University dormitory window wearing a parachute. She survived but was thrown out of the school and later became a marathon swimmer. She wound up setting a women’s world record in her first race (10-miles).

In 1978 at 28 years old she attempted to swim from Havana to Key West inside a steel shark cage. The weather moved her off course and she had to abandon the attempt. The following year she swam her last competitive race and became a CBS and NPR sports news contributor.

In 2010 at age 60 she announced that she would make another attempt to swim from Cuba to Florida despite not swimming for 30 years. She began training by swimming between 8 and 14 miles every week.

On August 7th 2011 she entered the water and headed to Key West. Twenty-nine miles into the swim she had to abandon the attempt after being pushed off course by strong currents and experiencing shoulder pain. The expedition cost $500,000 dollars.

She made another attempt in September 2011 but was severely stung in the face and body by box jellyfish and Portuguese men-of-war. She continued to swim despite the stings but finally had to be pulled from the water for medical attention.

On August 18, 2012 she tried again only to reach the halfway mark before the attempt was ended. She was stung again by jellyfish but refused to leave the water. It was a lightning storm which pushed her and her support team wildly off trajectory that made a course correction impossible.

Faced with turning 64 she began her 5th attempt at 8:59:02 on August 31, 2013 at the Hemingway Marina in Havana, Cuba. Covered in a body suit at night to avoid being stung by box jellyfish she arrived successfully at Smather’s Beach, Florida on September 2, 2013 in 52 hrs, 54 mins & 18.6 seconds.

“When I walk up on that shore in Florida, I want millions of those AARP sisters and brothers to look at me and say, ‘I’m going to go write that novel I thought it was too late to do. I’m going to go work in Africa on that farm that those people need help at. I’m going to adopt a child. It’s not too late, I can still live my dreams.”

Made in USA Shopping Trip – Bed Bath & Beyond

tervis tumbler

I recently made a trip to Bed Bath & Beyond for some clear 16 oz Tervis Tumblers which I love for holding my iced tea. I’ve been slowly buying the 2-packs with my 20% off coupons that are a must to have when you shop there.

Tervis is lucky and gets the prime front spot in the store. The front display did not have the 2-packs so I had to go further back in the store to find them.

I did a quick survey as I walked around the store looking for other Made in USA products. Here are my findings:

Calibowl – It seemed like a good price for 3 bowls and I liked that they were colorful, especially since I love red as you may have noticed in the design of the OHSAY USA website. Since I already own the “rainbow” 1986 vintage Pyrex mixing bowls I did not need them.

calibowl-set

Dexas Chop & Scoop. Once again I like the color choices and it seemed very convenient to have the handle on the end. I’m always concerned about the level of bacteria that remains on cutting boards but it states that it is bacteria and odor resistant. They were hard to find in the store & the Made in USA label was not prominent. They should rethink their packaging.

dexas

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

USA Pan – They had a large display on an end cap along with a lot of Made in USA signage. They also had a nice position in the store. They were located just a little way down the right side path.

My initial reaction was to their light weight. I prefer heavier cookware but I do need new cookie sheets. I’m inclined to buy Nordic Ware since I use some of their bakeware and love the weight. I also use All-Clad, manufactured in Canonsburg, PA., for my stove top cooking but it is expensive. I look for sales online and have slowly bought pieces at outlet stores. As a side note All-Clad is guaranteed for life and I recently replaced 2 non-stick fry pans.

usa-pans

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Add your product reviews from your finds at Bed Bath & Beyond ONLY and let us know if you have used the Calibowl, Chop & Scoop or USA Pan. I highly endorse the Tervis Tumblers myself and will be buying more in the future.

George Washington (Dollar Bill) Origami

USA capitol building origami

According to Wikipedia, Japanese origami began sometime after Buddhist monks carried paper to Japan during the 6th century. The first Japanese origami is dated from this period and was used for religious ceremonial purposes only, due to the high price of paper.

In the 19th Century the founder of kindergartens, Friedrich Frobel, used paper folding as a teaching aid for child development. In the 1920’s conjurors and magicians such as Houdini started folding paper money as part of their act. Houdini even published a book on it in America titled Magic Paper.

During WWII, dollar bill folding became a way for troops to pass the time and distract themselves between battles. Soon after, bartenders began to amuse their customers with the bill folding presentation. Customers would place their bill on the bar top and ask the bartender to fold it for their girl.

Here’s to George Washington & the other Presidents whose faces adorn American paper money.

Building Supplies Made In America

made in america dream

In Bozeman, Montana, Anders Lewendal and Aaron Sullivan in Kennewick, Wash have one thing in common. They both want their homes built with materials Made in USA. Both have had challenges along the way. As we all know these materials exist in the US but they are scattered and hard to locate or purchase. It requires adding the time to contact the manufacturer, get pricing and shipping to the building site.

It becomes an act of love for America that they have sacrificed delaying the completion of their home and having to pay for the land without the benefit of having a place to live or selling the home.

Luckily they have shared a master list of their suppliers so it is one step easier for others to follow in their footsteps. Even if home builders commit to using 10% more building materials Made in USA it is a start. Just taking the list to stores such as Home Depot and asking “which of these items do you carry” can speed the process.

It all begins by trying and not thinking it has to be 100% in the first attempt.
