What is the pledge of allegiance?

The Pledge of Allegiance is a patriotic oath or pledge that is commonly recited in the United States as a way to express loyalty and allegiance to the country. It is typically recited by students in schools, at various events, and during government proceedings.

The Pledge of Allegiance is as follows:

“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 of Allegiance was written by Francis Bellamy, a Baptist minister, in 1892 and originally did not include the phrase “under God,” which was added in 1954.

It was designed to be a unifying and patriotic statement for American citizens. While the pledge is voluntary and not legally required to be recited, it has been a source of controversy and debate in the United States.

Particularly in cases involving the inclusion of the words “under God” and issues related to freedom of speech and conscience.
