Betsy Ross Exhumed

On Dec. 17, 1975 in Mount Moriah in Philadelphia, University of Pennsylvania archaeologist-anthropologist Allan Mann began searching the Betsy Ross grave site, to find her remains.

But it was on the next day when the remains of Betsy Ross were found and removed from the cemetery.  These were eventually placed in the garden of her former home in Philadelphia.
