Part One of our series on “Public School Demands Patriotic Global Citizen Allegiance from Kids”
Paul Gordon introduces the series and sets it up by going over the history of the Pledge of Allegiance. Here, he’s using the site modernnotion.com.
Here is an excerpt from that post:
…..back in 1892, a man by the name of Daniel Sharp Ford, owner of the popular magazine The Youth’s Companion, had flags installed in every classroom across the country to spread American patriotism. Then, to push this patriotism further, he decided to have one of his staff members, Francis J. Bellamy, write a pledge that the children could recite every morning before class. Bellamy eventually created the Pledge of Allegiance that we are all familiar with today.
Despite the pledge’s success, Bellamy saw a problem: the children looked super weird standing completely still while reciting it. This led him to create what is now known as the Bellamy Salute, which involved the children covering their heart with their right hands and then stretching their arms out toward the flag, a perfectly good plan for back in the early 1900s.
