image for National Mottos of the United States 1776 - present Unofficial motto, 1773: It Was the Indians, We Swear

While "E Pluribus Unum" and "In God We Trust" might be the most well-known of our national mottos, they are far from the only ones that have been used. Let's take a look at some alternative slogans over the years.

1776 - 1789:
Your Experience May Vary if Black or Female

1789 - 1820: Now Available West of the Mississippi

1820 - 1861: What Impending National Calamity?

1861 - 1890: In Facial Hair We Trust

1890 - 1910:
How's Our Colonizing? 1-888-555-5555

1910 - 1929:
Because 1,000,000 Immigrants a Year Can't Be Wrong

1929 - 1941: Will Work for Food

1941 - 1946: Slap a Jap

1946 - 1963: Number 1 in Everything Not Related to Communism or Homosexuality

1963 - 1974: I Think It's So Groovy Now, That People Are Finally Getting Together

1974 - 1989:
We Like Our Women Like We Like Our Wars: Frigid, and Finishing Without Any Help from Us

1989 - 2001: If You Can Dream It, There's a Financial Bubble for You

2001 - present:
Look, I Have a Lot on My Plate Right Now, and You Aren't Helping When You Stand Over My Shoulder Like That, So Give It a Rest, OK? I'll Deal with It Eventually.
