“In God We Trust” is the official motto of the United States of America. It was adopted in 1956.
The original motto was “E pluribus unum” which means, “Out of many, one” and was adopted in 1782.
What you may not know:
A law passed in a Joint Resolution by the 84th Congress (P.L. 84-140) and approved by President Dwight Eisenhower on July 30, 1956, declared “In God We Trust” must appear on American currency.
I bet some of you thought it was there since the founders 😉
