  2. She played a role in the making of the first flag of the United States, supposedly at the request of George Washington. It now appears that there were several places making that flag at about the same time. Her role in the design seems to have been mainly the suggestion of five-pointed rather than six-pointed stars.

    There may be more legend than truth to the whole story. Her role in the making of the flag was first publicized about 100 years later, at the 1876 centennial.
