Fact of the Day: Pledge of Allegiance

Francis Bellamy was a socialist who wrote the Pledge of Allegiance as a tactic to sell schools American flags. 

We also used to salute the flag similar to the "Nazi Salute", but that was changed by FDR to a hand over the heart salute.

The under god part wasn't even added in 1954 years after the Baptist Minister who wrote it died.
