It is written in the 1890s, but the height of the McCarthy era, almost no one in American history and a proud chapter, heavy lobbying by religious groups, but it was not until 1954 by adding "under God" wording. Therefore, the original (without God) commitment to the First World War, the Great Depression and during World War II.
