False, it was originally composed in 1887 and revised in 1892, the Eisenhower administration added under God in 1954.

And in 1956 the Eisenhower administration also made In God We Trust the official motto of the US.

False. It was added during the Eisenhower administration.

Interesting fact that I bet most c0nservative morons don't know: The Pledge was written by an American Socialist, Edward Bellamy.
