Betsy Ross October 26, 2010
Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
You will want to screen this well to determine how this meets your family's criteria.  Two things that I noticed is first, Betsy eloped.  That is history, and obviously can't be changed, but the conversation had her saying that she didn't care what anyone thought, including her parents - they were in love.  These are not thoughts that I am willing to introduce to my daughter.  That statement could be marked out.  2nd, you will see some cleavage in the book. It is not flaunted and it simply portrayed as the normal dress attire. But it is still there.
