 The first publication of ‘The Pledge of Allegiance” conceived by the editors of the magazine as part of a national school celebration of Columbus Day. According to “Encyclopedia Britannica” authorship of the oath is attributed to Francis Bellamy, an assistant editor. The words ‘the flag of the United States of America’ were substituted for ‘my flag’ in 1924, and the pledge was officially recognized by the U. S. in 1942. In 1954, ‘under God’ was added.
