MASSACHUSETTES … Where the Pledge was Conceived

It’s a shame that a high school in MA will not allow its students to recite the Pledge of Allegiance!  http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/06/29/ma-school-officials-wont-let-students-recite-pledge-allegiance/

Boston, MA is the home of The Youth’s Companion.  It was in this publication that the Pledge of Allegiance was first written and published in 1892 as part of the 400th Anniversary of the Discovery of America by Christopher Columbus (their official title, not mine … too long!).   My book, America’s Story: A Pictorial History of the Pledge of Allegiance traces the untold story of how the Pledge came to exist.  It is America’s history … told through the history of the Pledge of Allegiance.  www.theuspledge.com
