Francis Bellamy was a Christian socialist Baptist minister born in 1855 and died in 1931. The original pledge of allegiance was written to celebrate Columbus Day and the 400th anniversary of the landing of Christopher Columbus in the USA. It was written to promote patriotism in school students.

The original pledge of allegiance published in 1892 is:

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

The pledge of allegiance was changed slightly in 1923 where "my flag" was changed to "the flag of the United States."

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.

In 1924 the third change to the pledge added the word America to the sentence.

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.

The Fourth and most recent change to the pledge of allegiance of the United States of America added "one nation under God" to the pledge.

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


The pledge was originally spoken while doing the "Bellamy salute" but has since been changed to simply have your hand over your heart while saying the pledge as the Bellamy salute was the same as the Nazi salute or Hitlet salute.

Also called : The States, America, USA, America.
More United States : American People, African Americans, American Politicians, American Presidents, Democrats, and Republicans.
