~ LAST POST OF THE SUMMER ~
SEE YOU IN SEPTEMBER!
Pledge of Allegiance
World War II Era ~ 1944
This is the version the school children recite in one of my all - time favorite movies The House Without A Christmas Tree, a quaint and touching all - American story, set in 1946).
Not quite as quaint, but you can also read about the original version -- as recited by school children -- in Devil in the White City a book about Chicago's Columbus Exposition in 1893, the event for which the Pledge was written (pp 179 - 181; but, alas, no Movie Tie - In.)
