Why Is Carmine, a Dye Made from Bugs, So Popular?
"Red Velvet cake and strawberry ice cream aren't only in the. They'll satisfy your sweet tooth. They likely share common ingredient made from a not so common source that gives them their red to pink Hue. That's Carmen a natural Red Dye, also labelled as cockatiel extract, e, One, twenty or natural, red dye four, and it owes its beauty to a teeny tiny bug, the female coach Neil Bug to be precise. In addition to its possible gross out factor, this tasteless FDA approved extract has a history full of. and. Intrigue a Betsy Ross even used this bright red dye to make red stripes on the very first American flag. The Koch Neil is a slate bug that feeds on prickly pear. Plants grown throughout Mexico South America southwestern United States, and the Canary Islands off the coast of Spain. The male Cockatiel plays its own unique role in nature, but it's the wingless legless female that interests dye makers. If you go looking for her, you won't find her vibrant red bounty on display. The female Koch Neal's grey exterior is covered in a white powder that protects her from predators as well as the scorching sun. And since the juice from CACTI her only source of nutrition, she boroughs in his. A bit stubborn about releasing her hold. In order to harvest the Koch Neil, the prickly pear pads are cut and brought to factories so that the bugs can be pulled out and processed, but it takes some serious people power. Approximately seventy thousand continentals are needed to create just one pound of die. That's a little less than half a kilo. Once harvested bugs are dried ground and mixed alcohol, solution or other compounds like borax. They give way to a vibrant long-lasting die that can be used to make colors from scarlet purple to pink to Peach. have been used to color everything from textiles to pottery, since the Neolithic period or New Stone Age with the majority, sourced from vegetables, plants and trees. Bugs have had their place to not only the Koch. Neil, another elusive die associated with wealth enroll status. Tyrian purple was made from the glands of snails. Neil bug is native to Mesoamerica. The AZTECS are believed to be the first to use Carmen to fill their lives with stunning shades of Crimson, when Spanish colonizers arrived in the Americas learned about Carmen and built enormous wealth by monopolizing the cockatiel market Spain kept the source of the color secret, and even made export the die a legal punishable by death. Coveted by the wealthy. The Royal Family is in the artist's crossed Europe. This die created fertile ground for contention. Those cumbersome and secretive production methods certainly made Carmen expensive. The car itself was an explosive part of Carmen's mystery and popularity. We spoke with Amy Butler. Greenfield author of the perfect read via email. She said red is the color of blood fired that end desire, and we can't help it. Respond to it on many levels. It makes her eyes dilate, and our breath come faster, and it's freighted with symbolic meaning. Also there are very few natural dyes that make a lasting bright true read so good ones had the value of rarity. Ounce ounce. Kacha new is the most powerful natural red dye in the world. That's why it was prized. When industrialization arrived in the mid eighteen hundreds, the demand for textiles increased dramatically and created a need for more cost effective dies. Chemists began to use petroleum and coal to formulate synthetic ones ultimately reducing the need for the Cockatiel bug. The shift towards synthetics pushed Carmen to the background, but it didn't disappear, and now it's making a comeback. Showing up on ingredient lists for anything from cake POPs to lipstick. Greenfield said when reports started linking synthetic grads to cancer and hyperactivity, and as people started taking an interest in natural foods in general, the market for catch. Neil began to rebound. So if Carmen is a natural product without the negative long-term effects of why did the coffee giant starbucks along with numerous other companies? Stop using it to add colour to their products. Well Carmen is safe for the majority of people can cause an allergic reaction, and besides that safety concern folks like Vegetarians vegans and people who keep kosher helped advocate for the change, but no matter whether you find eating a bug, appalling, fascinating or dangerous for such a tiny insect. The Koch Neil Bug has certainly left a vivid mark on culture, beating attractions, the beauty and power of red.

"Hey, everybody, we want to tell you about the brink a new podcast from how stuff works hosted by Ariel cast in and are good pal. John stricklin yet, they tell stories of entrepreneurship took a bold step out knowing really what's on the other side like people who chances like, Walt Disney betting his company and his house on the world's first feature length cartoon. Yes, no, white and the seven dwarfs apparently, even his own wife Lillian and his brother ROY tried to talk them out of it. And wall site shut up shut up all of you a making it and he did. That's right. You're gonna hear stories like this every week stories of trials in triumph featuring men and women who took that bold step. Listen and subscribe at apple podcasts or on the iheartradio app or wherever you listen to podcasts. Okay. So it's about here that we should kind of go over the Betsy Ross legend because what we just described as in eighteenth early nineteenth century American woman who is a Quaker and an upholsterer and her love life and her children her offspring. Yes. That's it. That's all we've got. So the flag story for those of you who aren't familiar with this is that when Betsy Ross was hanging around for upholstery shop Wedneday in Philadelphia. And I believe seventeen seventy six I think June seventeen seventy six when they say it happened three men came in that trio, including George Washington, George Ross who was remember her first husband's uncle, and then a man named Robert Morris who is a wealthy man known as the financier of the revolution and considered one of the founders of the US financial system. These three come in very very important men and as legend goes Betsy Ross recognized George Washington immediately. And they said MS Ross we need your help. We we have to were part of the continental congresses flag committee and we've been tasked with coming up with the flag. Will you help us create this flag? And she basically said let me see what you get. Yeah. She said we'll first of all my husb-. Passed away six months ago. So why are you bothering me of people? Right. And uncle George was like, I know, but you're still family. You still got Ross on your name, and this will make for a good story later. Right. So she looks at the the design and she said, this is not bad. She said, but you may want to change the proportions a bit and her real in. This is kind of the one thing that I think most historians do agree on is that her one big change design. Wise was changing the star from six pointer to a five pointer. Right. If you if you agree that that Betsy Ross did have a hand in making the original flag than yet. You probably say, that's probably correct. And apparently just because it was easier on her to cut. Yeah. I think though that they were saying like five pointed stars would be harder than a six point seven. She said, no, no. And like without her scissors and cut up some either cloth or paper and showed them. How easy wasn't there? Like, oh, that's beautiful. Awful and George Watson was like are. We still talking about this. Can we go? He's like, why am I gonna upholstery shop? Why am I in this story? It doesn't even make sense that I would be here. Oh, save that. Okay. So they said sure that's fine easier to cut you've proved it even though George Ross over there. Trying to cut the six and proof are wrong. The sun went down came back up. He was missing a fingertip. And so they said that that that's fine. Let's just do it. And they draw the new sketch. They incorporate hurt her new star. And they said get to it kind lady. And she did. And it's a it was a big flag. It wasn't like this was when they were gonna fly, you know, out in public. So it wasn't like a little tester flag. Right. So it took a while. And what would it take a few days? Maybe. And she finally says here's what I've got. And they say this is great. Let's see how it looks on the massive ship hoisted up ship, right? And they said all right. I think we're good to go here. Everyone today. Basically, that's it. You know, it's just occurred to me Chuck is how closely our history of associates resemble drunk history episodes. I know except for sober, right? But the so the flag is it's been proven on this massive ship. It looks beautiful and they go back to Betsy Ross, and they say Betsy organ, eat a lot more. These the implication is commerce takes over and Betsy becomes wealthy and secures her her her place as one of the the important figures of early American history. That's right. Here's the thing though, is that there is no proof or evidence at this happened. This all comes from a story that her grandson William can be told an eighteen seventies. So she's been fast away for what thirty years more almost close to forty. Yeah. Between thirty and forty so she, but but it wasn't like she died a hundred fifty years before when her grandson wrote it down like he had known her in his lifetime. Yeah. And he said that his aunt had told him this ten years before and said this she. Told me the story he recounted it probably in a much nicer way than we just did. And he told this in a speech at the Pennsylvania historical society. And this was you know, eighteen seventy eighteen seventy Sixers right around the corner. Everyone's getting all all hot and bothered by the upcoming celebration. Right. And I think everyone to sort of well, we'll get to the reasons why. But everyone definitely bought into this like this is great. Let's run with it. Right. And so here's about where historian say, okay. All right. So William be produced the story in a speech to the historical society. It took place a hundred years after the thing happened almost forty years after Betsy Ross died, it's family lower. And apparently, they got other people from the family to come testify. Like, yes, they've heard this story multiple times in very similar interational. It's like the story of how our ancestor. Grandmother an or whatever she was to them. So the first American flag, and they say, okay, we don't think that the Ross in clay pool families are liars by any stretch. They're not just didn't make it up. You know, right. That's kind of the the the the what's it called? When you give somebody the benefit of the doubt disbenefit of the benefit of the doubt. That historian Cindy give the families that they're not just like liars who made this up, but but it is family Lawrence O historians kind of approach with a little bit of grain of salt. The thing is there's no other family in the United States who saying actually, it was our grandmother who made the the first American flag or my grandfather was at that meeting. And he was the one who came over the stars. There's nothing like that. There's no other competing stories to this. What to this family story? The reason why historians take with a grain of salt because again. Like, you said there's just no documentary evidence whatsoever to show that it ever did take place yet. And there's like there are few flags here red flags that is about why this may not be true. What I think is that it is a version of the truth. And then history tells reps a good story around it, right? There was no record of a flag committee being formed. The fact that George Washington was there is just doubtful in and of itself as a huge superstar army general in American hero that he would be like, we're kind of kidding around. When he's like, why am I here? But why would he have been there in person not only that this is this was recounted by William canby as a a congressional committee for the flag? And there's two problems with that one. George Washington wasn't a member of congress. Right. So again, why would they send him along with this committee? Eighty and then Secondly, congress never in any way, shape or form on paper at least took up the flag. The details of the flag until seventeen seventy seven a full year after the story supposedly took place. That's right. There are few things working in her favor. Here. It is verified that she was paid a pretty good sum of money that same year by the Pennsylvania state navy board. Okay. So that she did make flags for the Pennsylvania navy. Well, this is where it gets all murky because there's another man which will get into. Let's put a pin in that though. Oh of that guy for now. Okay. All right 'cause we were getting pretty fast and furious. And there's also a painting supposedly dating to eighteen fifty one a different painting that shows her sewing an American flag. But I don't think they have like officially authenticated that it's from eighteen fifty one eighteen fifty one. Yeah. Okay. But here's what I don't understand. If those painting eighteen fifty one I mean, supposedly, none of this happens all eighteen what seventy. The Camby story. Yeah. Like when the big meeting took place. I mean, that's when that's when William Camby told that family story, but the fact that there's a painting that predates his speech by nineteen years showing the same thing. Sure. Glint support to his story for sure. All right. But it's still that's an eighteen fifty one painting depicting something that happened seventy five years prior. Right. Sorry. My math was I forgot one hundred years heavy figures to carry the dead. But again that that painting is not I don't think fully authenticated. So who knows if that's true or not one of those dirty lying Ross Klay pool. Family members did it in two thousand twelve but he's less Klay pool for a minute. And I was about to run out of the room like less Klay pool. I'm not a prime guy. So I wouldn't call primus guy either. But I I like some of their songs. Yeah. Yeah. So Chuck, you wanna take another message break and then come back and get to it. Get to the the truth about the flag. Sure. Hi,
"betsy ross" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"Guess. So let's well, I mean, let's get into this. Because the first thing that you will probably say if you're a a Betsy Ross believer. She was a real person, by the way. Yeah. I think the first thing a lot of our listeners around the world will say was who is Betsy Ross. Sure. Well, she is credited which is where I was going with the the sort of creation design in sewing of the first flag, thanks to a lot of things. But certainly held up by a very famous painting called the birth of our nation's flag by Charles Weissberger, very famous painting. Yeah. But it's one of those paintings. It's like super old-timey where there's a lot of written explanation. Painted into the painting. I just find. It's just there's nothing more old timey than that. Yeah. You read that? Well, sure wasn't expecting this. He says something along the line. You just want an award. Well, I don't have anything prepared. He said this is the national standard was made by Betsy Ross in seventeen seventy six at two three nine arch street Philadelphia in the room represented in this picture. That's a lot of words. But it goes on still the committee Robert Morrison honorable George Ross, accompanied by General, George Washington called upon the celebrated woman and together with her suggestions produced are beautiful emblem of liberty. So what are you guys doing this weekend? I was thinking about maybe going roller skating. I know it hasn't been invented yet. Because it's only eighteen seventy something 1893 any actually wrote out eighteen seventy something 1893, I know. And then he said how about this new country pretty neat. Right. And then just kind of trails off from there. It's ends there. It's a lot. It's a really wordy painting. Frankly, it is very wordy. But that that helps sort of cement the idea. That Betsy Ross was in fact, the designer and creator in seamstress, I guess for the first flag while I'm going to take issue on behalf of some of our more historically stewed listeners and say she I don't think she's credited with designing the flag. I think this is the one thing that everybody agrees on is that she is is not given credit for designing. She's she's given credit for create like physically creating the first flight, and then helping with some trouble shooting in the early design. Oh, you should go to an elementary school. Why are they teaching otherwise? Sure. Is that right? Yeah. So created one hundred percent by Betsy Ross fraud. It's not true. What what which part sent you? The thing. I just said neither one. Okay. But we should talk about the real Betsy Ross because she was a real lady, she's not an an apparition or a visage. She was born in seventeen fifty two on New Year's day. She's a Newsday baby supposedly documented here. Probably. Okay. Elizabeth GRIs Kim was her name born to Samuel and Rebecca in Pennsylvania in her. Great grand pappy, Andrew Briscoe was a very notable Philadelphian. He was one of the first settlers in a carpenter in like built apparently a lot of Philadelphia's first buildings. Yeah. Which is. I mean, that's that's pretty prominent for that that time because I mean, this is when the the whole place is being settled, and it's being settled by Quakers. So like, Pennsylvania is a Quaker settlement, and that's how Elizabeth Chris kirkum aka Betsy Ross, which makes you think like she she robbed banks later in life and went on the Lam and change your name. Not true. You'll see it's it all become apparent second. But she was raised as a strict Quaker in Penn. Selena, right. One of nine children who grew to adulthood, but her parents had seventeen kids dude that so many kid van well, the Quakers take like keeping their faith going by multiplying seriously. I mean, that's like how a lot of religious groups are they do twofold. They reproduce a lot. And they also try to make sure that their their members who are born into their groups Mary other members boy the group so that they will raise more Quakers, or what have you whatever the religious group is an actually Betsy ran afoul this later on. We'll see she was a bit of a rebel. Yeah. And also imagine a Samuel is a Quaker was like, you know, it's very fun procreation and his wife was like it's not as one for me. Sure, it is such a great like eighteenth century Quaker impression maybe the best of ever heard Chuck. This is the one thing we're allowed to do. That's good. Well, they so the Quakers actually had a really really liberal society. Like, there was a lot of quality. There was a lot of it was very they were very peaceful group and still are their pacifist through and through. But they also were really strict morally like if you were in a play, you could be fine twenty shillings and spend ten to ten days in jail for being in a play because it was just kind of frivolous and not very religious. But on the other hand, they all drank like fish, you just weren't allowed to sell it to like the native Americans because they acquitted that with corrupting them Quakers. Oh, yeah. Sure. Nice. Do you? I think we used to work with one. Didn't we? Yes. Yes. So I think we know the same Quakers probably. But now I'm wondering first of all it was about this shout out. The name was like should I not? Then I was like, why wouldn't I? But isn't the whole thing happened? Why would I? Yeah. Exactly. And then you thought fraud will some people like to keep their stuff personal. So I'm just sure I'm not gonna do that under the table. Quaker is what the that? But they're also called the society of friends. I think is the greatest name for any religious group of all time. Right. Founded by six year olds. Society of best wins. All right. So there in Pennsylvania, the one thing that we do know was that her nickname was Betsy. And when she was about fifteen she did learn to so very, well, she was an apprentice to an upholster named John Webster. And this is where she learned her craft. Right. And when you think of like is here Betsy Ross being a seamstress, right? She was not a seamstress. She was like you just said an upholsterer which involves a lot more than say dress making. As a matter of fact, I'm sure she did make clothes here there. She knew how to but mostly her stuff was on like sewing, curtains, and tablecloths and rugs and like other textiles rather than like actual clothing. So she was in upholsterer through and through. So is seamstress specifically clothing. That's the impression. I have interesting. I feel like such a fraud because I didn't look the difference between the two, but that's that's my take on it. I'm gonna find out also took umbrellas Venetia. Blinds and flags that's something in a pollster would have made back in the eighteenth century, apparently seamstresses any woman who says okay anything. Oh that I wonder if a pulse terror is a specialty of seamstress then. Yeah. Probably so. Okay. And what is a man who sows called? The seam stir. Maybe. Never thought about that. And if he's in the union, he's a seems to Teamster. Oh, dad. I know. It's really bad. Maybe we'll have Jerry cut that out to keep my public image or so while she was doing this work. She met a man named John Ross note the last name, and he was also an apprentice. And he was good at it. He opened his own shop, and he was sort of. And he can he came from a well connected family in his actual uncle, George. He might have recognized from that painting, George Ross junior. He was he signed the declaration of independence. Right. So that's legit. Oh, yeah. He was he was big time. He was I think a Representative for for Pennsylvania in the legislature, either Pennsylvania or New Jersey one of the two he's here's a bigwig if he's hanging out with George Washington, and Betsy Ross's upholstery shop then he was a big week. That's right. A big. Powdered wig, by the way. So so this her marriage to John Ross it didn't last very long, although it was kinda marked by that like younger younger age radicalism. Where she so John Ross was an Anglican, right? Yeah. He wasn't Quaker which was bad. Right. So they fell in love. He was in a pollster as well and John Ross in bets Betsy later Betsy Ross when they met in fell in love they had to elope to New Jersey which everybody does the ill up to New Jersey. Because her parents were like, you cannot do that. And she said, well, I'm doing it. And they said, well, then you're out and she went off and got married, and she was excommunicated is not the way I think specifically Catholic, but she was kicked out of the Quakers and her parent her family disowned her. So she definitely loved the guy went off in followed her heart, and they made sweet upholstery together because he opened his own. Shop actually. Yeah. It's really sad though. I mean, it's great they found each other. But it's anytime someone's like expelled been disowned by their family. It's just sort of sure over religions said thing. Yeah. It is. Yeah. For any reason, really, you know, like bringing shame or dishonor. It's like, it's your family. That's supposed to suppose to be there for you. No matter what. But doesn't always work out that way, which was which Chuck means that family is what you make of it. I thought family what was it? Never trust family. Never trust family. That's specifically blood family. Okay. So the revolutionary war comes along and in Philadelphia people were, you know, kind of getting together forming militias in order to you know, defend the city in case in case things went down. Right. And no one knows for sure what was going on with John and Betsy. But we do know that he he died. We just don't know quite how. Well, yeah, they think maybe it was either in accident or a death from being in the militia or there's there's supposedly family rumor that that he may have suffered from mental illness in may have died as a result of something some complication from that. Yeah. It's really sad though. Because that was obviously her true love enough to to leave her, family and religion. And she was widowed in seventeen seventy six just what three years later after they got married. Yep. So so it was just three years after right? Yeah. Okay. So when she was a widow there that radicalism. I mentioned earlier started to kick in. She went back to Quakers if she ever left. I don't I've never seen that she began attending like Anglican mass or anything, but she went back to the Quakers, but she joined a group a specific group of Quakers called the free Quakers or fighting Quakers. Who were like, yeah, we're Quakers. But we also are not crazy into pacifism. Mm-hmm. Because we we will showed me back showed me and see what happens and that was what they wore on their on their shirts. But man, but the reason that they were anti pacifist because they wanted to support independence. There was going to be a fight struggle for independence. And you couldn't really side with one side in in not and be a pacifist, basically. Yeah. Remember pacifism episode? That was a good one. The other was a good one. So she was once again unlucky in love. She got married again too many Joseph Ashburn he died in prison in Britain. And then she finally got married third time to a man named John clay pool, and she was married to him until he died. But this was like twenty years this time, you you on how she and John clay pool. At her second husband's funeral almost. Okay. He showed up our afterward. John clay pool even even more even sooner than that, John. Clay pool was in prison with Joseph Ashburn over in Great Britain after he got out he made his way over to America. And he's the one who brought Betsy Ross the news that her husband had died. And then he I guess he was like so you doing all right. Can I can I be of any assistance for you? And rather than just being there for her. They he took away the four her, and he was just there. I wonder if he was like, by the way, your husband's last words were totally you should go marry my wife, that's the this that they used to do back in the day. So she worked as an upholsterer until she died at the age of eighty four eighteen thirty six she had five little girls, which is kind of great aside from that. That's kind of what we know about Betsy Ross as far as the facts go. Yeah. That's about where they they run out. And you might say listener, well guys, you left out the most important one. The most important fact the story of for sowing the American flag. Well, well, we're going to stick by what we just said and say that we just ran out of facts, which means is pretty good time for message for Tony thing. Charleston. Agreed. We'll be right back. Hey,

And they also try to make sure that their their members who are born into their their groups Mary other members boring the group so that they will raise more Quakers, or what have you whatever the religious group is an actually Betsy ran afoul of this later on. We'll see she was a bit of a rebel. Yeah. And also imagine a Samuel is a Quaker was like, you know, it's very fun. Procreation and his wife was like it's not as fun for me. Sure, it is such a great like eighteenth century Quaker impression maybe the best of ever heard Chuck. This is the one thing we're allowed to do. That's good. Well, they so the Quakers actually had a really really liberal society. Like there is a lot of equality. There was a lot of it was very they were very peaceful group and still are their pacifist through and through. But they also were really strict morally like if you were in a play, you could be fine twenty shillings and spend ten to ten days in jail for being in a play because it was just kind of frivolous and not very religious. But on the other hand, they all drank like fish, you just weren't allowed to sell it to like the native Americans because they acquitted that with corrupting them Quakers. Oh, yeah. Sure. Nice. Do you? I think we used to work with one. Didn't we? Yes. Yes. So I think we know the same Quakers probably. But now, I'm wondering first of all it was about this shout out the name, then was like should I not then I was like, why wouldn't I? But isn't the whole thing happened? Why would I? Yeah. Exactly. And then you thought fraud, well, some people like to keep their stuff personal. So I'm just sure I'm not going to do that under the table. Quaker is what that is. But they're also called the society of friends. I think is the greatest name for any religious group of all time. Right. Founded by six year olds. Society of best wins. All right. So there in Pennsylvania, the one thing that we do know was that her nickname was Betsy. And when she was about fifteen she did learn to so very, well, she was an apprentice to an upholster named John Webster. And this is where she learned her craft. Right. And when you think of like is here Betsy Ross being a seamstress, right? She was not a seamstress. She was like you just said an upholsterer which involves a lot more than say dress making. As a matter of fact, I'm sure she did make clothes here there. She knew how to but mostly her stuff was on like sewing, curtains and tablecloths in rugs. And like other textiles rather than like actual clothing. So she was in upholsterer through and through. So is seamstress specifically clothing. That's the impression. I have interesting. I feel like such a fraud because I didn't look up the difference between the two, but that's that's my take on it. I'm gonna find out also choke umbrellas Venetia. Blinds and flags that's something in upholsterer would have made back in the eighteenth century. Apparently seamstresses any woman who says okay anything. Oh that I wonder if a pulse terror is a specialty of seamstress then. Yeah. Probably so. Okay. And what is a man who sows called? The seam stir. Maybe. Never thought about that. And if he's in the union, he's a seems to Teamster. Oh, dad. I know. It's really bad. Maybe we'll have Jerry cut that out to keep my public image or so while she was doing this work. She met a man named John Ross note the last name, and he was also an apprentice. And he was good at it. And he opened his own shop, and he was sort of. And he can he came from a well connected family in his actual Arkell, George. He might have recognized from that painting, George Ross junior. He was he signed the declaration of independence. Right. So that's legit. Oh, yeah. He was he was big time. He was I think a Representative for for Pennsylvania in the legislature, either Pennsylvania or New Jersey one of the two he's here's a bigwig if he's hanging out with George Washington, and Betsy Ross's upholstery shop, then he was a big wake. That's right. A big. Powdered wig, by the way. So so this her marriage to John Ross it didn't last very long, although it was kinda marked by that like younger younger age radicalism. Where she so John Ross was an Anglican, right? Yeah. He wasn't Quaker which was bad. Right. So they fell in love. He was in a pollster as well and John Ross in bets Betsy later Betsy Ross when they met in fell in love they had to elope to New Jersey which everybody does the ill up to New Jersey. Because her parents were like, you cannot do that. And she said, well, I'm doing it. And they said, well, then you're out and she went off and got married, and she was excommunicated is not the way I think specifically Catholic, but she was kicked out of the Quakers and her parent her family disowned her. So she definitely loved the guy went off in followed her heart, and they made sweet upholstery together because he opened his own. Shop actually. Yeah. It's really sad though. I mean, it's great they found each other. But it's anytime someone's like expelled been disowned by their family. It's just sort of sure over religions said thing. Yeah. It is. Yeah. For any reason, really, you know, like bringing shame or dishonor. It's like, it's your family. That's supposed to suppose to be there for you. No matter what. But doesn't always work out that way, which was which Chuck means that family is what you make of it. I thought family what was it? Never trust family. Never trust family. That's specifically blood family. Okay. So the revolutionary war comes along and in Philadelphia people were you know, kind of getting together forming militias in order to defend the city in case in case things went down. Right. And no one knows for sure what was going on with John and Betsy. But we do know that he he died. We just don't know quite how. Oh, yeah. They think maybe it was either in accident or a death from being in the militia or there's there's supposedly family rumor that that he may have suffered from mental illness in may have died as a result of something some complication from that. Yeah. It's really sad though. Because that was obviously her true love enough to to leave her, family and religion. And she was widowed in seventeen seventy six just what three years later after they got married. Yep. So so it was just three years after right? Yeah. Okay. So when she was a widow there that radicalism. I mentioned earlier started to kick in. She went back to Quakers if she ever left. I don't I've never seen that she began attending like Anglican mass or anything, but she went back to the Quakers, but she joined a group a specific group of Quakers called the free Quakers or fighting Quakers. Who were like, yeah, we're Quakers. But we also are not crazy into pacifism. Mm-hmm. Because we we will showed me back showed me and see what happens and that was what they wore on their on their shirts. But man, but the reason that they were anti pacifist because they wanted to support independence. There was going to be a fight struggle for independence. And you couldn't really side with one side in in not and be a pacifist, basically. Yeah. Remember our pacifism episode? That was a good one. The other one's a good one. So she was once again unlucky in love. She got married again too many Joseph Ashburn he died in prison in Britain. And then she finally got married third time to a man named John clay pool, and she was married to him until he died. But this was like twenty years this time, you you on how she in John clay pool. Matt. At her second husband's funeral almost. Okay. He showed up our afterward. John clay pool even even more even sooner than that, John. Clay pool was in prison with Joseph Ashburn over in Great Britain after he got out he made his way over to America. And he's the one who brought Betsy Ross the news that her husband had died. And then he I guess he was like so you doing all right. Can I can I be of any assistance for you? And rather than just being there for her. He took away the four her, and he was just there. I wonder if he was like, by the way, your husband's last words were totally you should go marry my wife, that's the this that they used to do back in the day. So she worked as an upholsterer until she died at the age of eighty four eighteen thirty six she had five little girls, which is kind of great aside from that. That's kind of what we know about Betsy Ross as far as the facts go. Yeah. That's about where they they run out. And you might say listener, well guys, you left out the most important one. The most important fact the story of for sowing the American flag. Well, well, we're going to stick by what we just said and say that we just ran out of facts, which means is pretty good time for message for Tony think Charles. Agreed. We'll be right back. Hey,
