“The beautifully-drawn characters and rich history in With This Pledge work seamlessly to demonstrate that Christ’s love and romantic love can triumph even in our darkest moments.” —Lynn Austin, bestselling author of Legacy of Mercy What can a woman—a mere governess—do against the scourge of slavery? Elizabeth “Lizzie” Clouston’s quietly held principles oppose those of the Southern Cause—but when forty thousand soldiers converge on the fields of Franklin, Tennessee, the war demands an answer. The Carnton home, where she is governess, is converted into a Confederate field hospital, and Lizzie is called upon to assist the military doctor with surgeries that determine life or death. Faced with the unimaginable, she must summon fortitude, even as she fears for the life of Towny, her fiancé and lifelong friend. As a young soldier lies dying in Lizzie’s arms, she vows to relay his final words to his mother, but knows little more than the boy’s first name. That same night, decorated Mississippi sharpshooter Captain Roland Ward Jones extracts a different promise from Lizzie: that she intervene should the surgeon decide to amputate his leg. Lizzie is nothing if not a woman of her word, earning the soldiers’ respect as she tends to the wounded within Carnton’s walls. None is more admiring than Captain Jones, who doesn’t realize she is pledged to another. But as Lizzie’s heart softens toward the Confederate captain, she discovers that his moral ground is at odds with her own. Now torn between love, principles, and pledges made, she struggles to be true to her own heart while standing for what she knows is right—no matter the cost. From the pages of history and the personal accounts of those who endured the Battle of Franklin, Tamera Alexander weaves the real-life love letters between Captain Roland Ward Jones and Miss Elizabeth Clouston into a story of unlikely romance first kindled amid the shadows of war.
This book looks at the reasons commonly offered in defense of 'under God' and shows why no fair and just person of any religion would accept it. It does so by looking at a hypothetical country where its citizens have adopted a pledge of allegiance to 'one white nation' - because it was founded by white people. Through this story, we meet Shawn Henry. He is a high school junior who will show us how this modification to the Pledge suggests that failure to support 'one white nation' is made comparable to failure to support a nation 'with liberty and justice for all'. In doing so, it creates a climate of hostility that denigrates and degrades the contributions of good citizens. It then looks at the major arguments in defense of the pledge, and shows how no fair and just person could support it.

In 1892, a magazine writer named Francis Bellamy came up with a simple 23-word statement of loyalty to the United States of America. This statement forms the basis for the Pledge of Allegiance, which today is often recited by Americans at the start of the school day, or before public meetings. Reciting the Pledge is a promise that the person will support and be faithful to the United States of America, and to the core values on which our nation was founded. The Pledge of Allegiance remains an important symbol of American values, including liberty and justice for all.

The cultural and political history of the Pledge of Allegiance, how it came to be, what it means to Americans, and why we have battled over it for generations For more than a century, reciting the Pledge of Allegiance has been a central part of the American Experience. And perhaps because of its ubiquity, this simple flag salute has served not only as a unifying ritual but also as a lightning rod for bitter controversy. Congress's 1954 decision to add "under God" to the Pledge has made it the focus of three U.S. Supreme Court cases and at least one other landmark appellate decision. The debate continues today, but along with it exists a widely held admiration and support for this simple affirmation of our shared patriotism. As Jeffrey Owen Jones and Peter Meyer show in their illuminating history, this brief salute to the flag has had an almost magical power to galvanize people's deepest feelings and beliefs about who we are and ought to be as a nation. In that sense, the story of the Pledge of Allegiance is the story of America and the American people.
