Lincoln's Final Act

NEWS: Rep. Randy Forbes of Virginia has authored the "In God We Trust" Resolution (H.Con.Res. 274), which reaffirms "In God We Trust" as our national motto and urges it be displayed "in all public buildings, public schools, and other government institutions."
This phrase was adopted as the U.S. official national motto in 1956, but has appeared on our coinage since 1865. The last piece of legislation Abraham Lincoln signed authorized the use of "In God We Trust" on all our coins.

WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT: 1) If your representative is co-sponsoring the resolution, you can send a letter of encouragement. e-mail, or make a call.
2) If your representative is NOT a co-sponsor, urge them to become one today.
