David Parker's "In Griswold We Trust" was published in Common-Place, the online journal of the American Antiquarian Society. The article looks at George Washington's alleged addition of "so help me God" to the presidential oath of office in 1789 and especially how this story became part of the American creation myth. David's clever title refers to Rufus Griswold, whose 1854 book The Republican Court contains the first known telling of the story. Available at www.common-place.org/vol-15/no-01/parker
