    In patriotic celebration, this plastic white picket fence is beautifully decorated with hanging Betsy Ross flags. Fences, so commonly seen in Williamsburg today, were actually required by colonial law to be built around each lot. An act of the General Assembly of 1705, intended to protect the gardens from stray horses and cattle, required the owner of every lot on Duke of Gloucester Street to "inclose the said lots, or half acres, with a wall, pales, or post and rails, within six months after the building, which the law requires to be erected thereupon, shall be finished." Post and rail fences and picket fences were typical for private gardens.

    Made in Pennsylvania, each Byers' Choice® accessory is lovingly hand-painted and assembled. A wonderful Colonial Williamsburg memento! (For decorative use only; not meant to be used as a doll or toy.) 20"W x 1½"D x 7"H
    The distinctive feature of the Ross flag is the arrangement of the stars in a circle. Although some flag historians and revisionists do not accept the Betsy Ross design as the first American flag, the Betsy Ross story is accepted by most Americans. According to the traditional account, the original flag was made on July 4, 1776, when a small committee—including George Washington and relative George Ross—visited Betsy and discussed the need for a new American flag. Betsy accepted the job to manufacture the flag, altering the committee's design by replacing the six-pointed stars with five-pointed stars.
