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 original pledge was written by Francis Bellamy (1855-1931) and was originally published by The Youth’s Companion, a Boston magazine.

The National Flag Conferences of the American Legion expanded the original wording in 1923 and 1924.

In 1942, Congress made the pledge part of its code for the use of the flag.

In 1954, it added the words “under God.”
