The Pledge of Allegiance & The Star Spangled Banner

The National Anthem and Pledge of Allegiance embody our collective beliefs as a nation

It goes without saying that the American Flag is one of the most widely recognized flags, both in our own country, as well as throughout the entire world. Our flag contains a special symbolism, that many Americans are very proud to be able to be a part of. These verses not only stand to represent our allegiance for our own country, but also as a support of the many Veterans and soldiers that have fought, and are fighting, to preserve our country, who should be honored despite political views. Along with these special words, the Flag is usually displayed, to whom the pledge or anthem are directed.

The Pledge of Allegiance was composed by Francis Bellamy in 1892, and officially adopted by Congress in 1942.

The Pledge of Allegiance

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.

 

 

The Star-Spangled Banner (The National Anthem)

                                   ~

O say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,

What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming?

Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight,

O'er the ramparts we watch'd, were so gallantly streaming?

And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,

Gave proof thro' the night that our flag was still there.

                                   ~

O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

                                   ~

On the shore dimly seen thro' the mists of the deep,

Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,

What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,

As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?

Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,

In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream:

'Tis the star-spangled banner: O, long may it wave

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

                                   ~

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore

That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,

A home and a country should leave us no more?

Their blood has wash'd out their foul footsteps' pollution.

No refuge could save the hireling and slave

From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:

And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

                                   ~

O thus be it ever when free-men shall stand

Between their lov'd home and the war's desolation;

Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land

Praise the Pow'r that hath made and preserv'd us a nation!

Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,

And this be our motto: “In God is our trust!”

And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
