A New 'America The Beautiful' Blog....

It is still under construction, but 'from sea to shining sea' it will be as American as 'apple pie'. Click on the sailor saluting the flag in the sidebar and you will be instantly transported, patriotically to the new 'America The Beautiful' blog! Enjoy! Don't forget to teach your children the 'Pledge of Allegiance'! Aha! I diligently look for a true 'pledge' and what do we get? One without 'Under God'. Ok, what a beautiful vintage image and someone removes it. It is in my heart always and forever...

'Under God', thank you very much and don't forget it.... :-) Visit here: http://americathebeautiful1776.blogspot.com/

"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."


Francis Bellamy (1855 - 1931), a Baptist minister, wrote the original Pledge in August 1892. In 1954, Congress after a campaign by the Knights of Columbus, added the words, 'under God,' to the Pledge. The Pledge was now both a patriotic oath and a public prayer.

I stand corrected. :-)


  1. Congratulation to your new blog - you´r so creativ (it looks very beautiful - love that colours and design).....where to you get all your inspiration?!!!

    Wish you a wonderful day, Hugs Jade

  2. Those two wonderful words, "under God", were not officially incorporated into the pledge until 1954, although they had been in popular use since 1948. So, your historic pledge card is accurate for the period. I agree, the pledge is empty without them.

    I love your blog and am looking forward to your new one, too.


Thanks for taking time to comment and visit QBC. :)
