Declaration of Loyalty.

The Pledge of Allegiance serves as a tool to bring Americans together as a pledge of loyalty to our great country. Not only does the pledge symbolize loyalty to the United States, but it also affirms the values and freedoms that our country upholds.

Evolution of the Pledge.

Congress formally recognized the Pledge of Allegiance on December 28, 1945.  Thought to have been written by Francis Bellamy, the Pledge of Allegiance was published anonymously by a magazine for young people, The Youth’s Companion.  The Pledge of Allegiance was first written in 1892 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the discovery of the Americas. Different from the modern version of the pledge, the original states “I pledge allegiance to my Flag” instead of to “the flag of the United States of America.”

The words “under God” were added by Congress on June 14, 1954, in response to the anti-Communist opinion sweeping the country during the Cold War.
