Betsy Ross To Marry Benjamin Franklin

Although Benjamin Franklin had a hand in a lot of great American accomplishments, he never put the moves on Betsy Ross, the lady who stitched the first flag — that is, until now. Philadelphia’s favorite Benjamin Franklin impersonator, Ralph Archbold, is engaged to the best Betsy Ross impersonator, Linda Wilde. Oddly enough, the couple met at a wedding on September 1st, the same date our forefather Franklin married his wife in 1730.
