President Eisenhower's Words

On June 14, 1954, 34th President Dwight David Eisenhower signed the Resolution of Congress adding the phrase "Under God" to the Pledge of Allegiance:

"In this way we are affirming the transcendence of religious faith in America's heritage and future; in this way we shall constantly strengthen those spiritual weapons which forever will be our country's most powerful resource in peace and war."
