History of the Pledge of Allegiance

Beautiful mural of the history of the Pledge of Allegiance by Francis Bellamy, who was born in Mount Morris. The mural was created by Shawn Dunwoody of Rochester. He is painting another cool mural across the street.

[Lisa B, 08/08/2021]

The mural pays tribute to Bellamy's original 1892 pledge, which was generic and included no mention of the USA or God.
