From the title to the last line this was an enjoyable read. Great job and tribute to both the flag and the flag maker.

A very enjoyable telling of this wonderful tale. I can see it as an illustrated children's book.

Oh, this was really good! It took me awhile to realize it wasn't the current "George" you were talking about, but I think that actually added to it. It gave it an air(sp?) of mystery. Great job.

What a wonderful story in verse! I love it even more because it's true, a beautiful part of our special history in the U.S. You never once let me as a reader slip away in the course of a long narrative poem, and that is real skill! Great work!!

Our children in schools today need to experience a history lesson like this. Her story comes alive and I too can't resist a great piece of Americana shared!
