Tally Books for #PledgeofAllegianceDay
Most of us memorized the Pledge of Allegiance back in kindergarten, but do any of us really know the true origins of it? Today is Pledge of Allegiance Day- did you know…
The first American pledge of allegiance (different from the one we recite today) was written by Captain George Thatcher Balch during the Civil War. It goes:
“We give our heads and hearts to God and our country; one country, one language, one flag!”
The pledge we all know today was based on one written by Francis Bellamy in 1892. It goes:
“I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all”
Congress formally adopted Bellamy’s pledge in 1942, and added the words “Under God” in 1954.

tally books are a daily reminder of our love for our country:
