Thank the united daughters of the confederacy. They were the elite, wealthy of the south (from families of slave holders--that's why they were rich; all that free labor).
They were allowed 2 rewrite history. That's especially interesting b/c, usually, the winners write history. They were the losers. Their racist agenda totally fucked up generations of the south. Their hateful legacy continues, full bore, to this day. Here's a 7 minute dose of the truth.

A 4+ min history lesson on the pledge of allegiance. I would guess most ppl don't know this history. Certainly, it's not taught.
Around 1954 was when the evangelical, billy graham (during the Eisenhower administration), inserted himself into politics. It's been downhill ever since.
