In God (Egypt) We Trust by Dr. Dave Madenberg


On July 30, 1953, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed a bill into law which made, 'In God We Trust,' the official motto of the United States of America.

These words had been placed on U.S. coins since the Civil War. But, this new law mandated the phrase be added to America's paper currency as well.

Two years earlier, President Eisenhower also successfully pushed to have the phrase 'under God' added to our Pledge of Allegiance.
