Red and The Pledge

Vincennes, Indiana native Mr. Red Skelton
created this monologue about The Pledge of Allegiance.  During his presentation, the
comedian commented on the meaning of each phrase contained in The Pledge and mentions his principal from Harrison School, Mr. Lasswell. 

The Columbia Broadcast System (CBS) received 200,000 requests for copies of this televised performance after it first aired during The Red Skelton Show seen on January 14, 1969.
