what was the original purpose of the pledge of allegiance

What was the original purpose of the Pledge of Allegiance?

“The Pledge was written for the purpose of commemorating the four hundredth anniversary of America’s discovery by Christopher Columbus. It was conceived as a one-event exercize.”—Jeffery Owen Jones and Peter Meyer (Pg 100)

The original "Pledge of Allegiance" was published in the September 8 issue of the popular children's magazine The Youth’s Companion

The celebration was a National School’s event, to promote National unity.
