"I pledge allegiance to my flag..."

 Flag Day bonus post! Francis Bellamy, author of the pledge of allegiance, was a resident of Rome, NY, and his grave is well-advertised in Rome Cemetery. (Not particularly notable otherwise, other than being a pink granite for the flashy bit, though.)

"I pledge allegiance to my flag
and to the republic for which it stands
one nation indivisible,
with liberty and justice for all."

F. B.
