A short history of the Pledge of Allegiance.  Good, except they credit Eisenhower for adding "under God" to the Pledge.  The Knights of Columbus lobbied for this addition.

The original Pledge of Allegiance was written in August 1892 by the baptist minister Francis Bellamy. Bellamy had hoped the pledge would be used by citizens in any country. It originally contained the phrase "my flag." This caused concern that some would pledge to the flag of their native countries, so in 1923 the words "the Flag of the United States of America" were added. In 1954, President Eisenhower encouraged Congress to add the words "under God," creating the pledge we say today.
