I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands: One nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

1. The pledge was written by a socialist (and a Baptist minister). He did not include the phrases "United States of America" or "under God."

"I pledge allegiance to my flag and the republic for which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all."

2. The pledge was changed in 1923 when it was feared immigrant children would not know which flag they were pledging allegiance to. The new pledge still did not contain the phrase "under God."

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States and to the republic for which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all."

3. In 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower added the words "under God" after listening to a sermon by a Presbyterian minister. The pledge finally read:

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

4. Students saluted the flag with their right hand, palm downward and extended forward until June 22, 1942, when Congress officially recognized the Pledge of Allegiance by including it in the U.S. Flag Code, and changed the salute to the hand over the heart because the it too closely resembled Nazi Germany’s “Heil Hitler” salute.
