|The Citizenship merit badge went through a revamp replacing the
retired Civics merit badge. After a short period of time, in 1952, and after
extensive testing and reviewing, the Citizenship pamphlet served as the core of
4 individual merit badges. Merit badges earned were based off of those Scouts
that started or earned the Civics (or prototype Citizenship) merit badge.
After 1952 Scouts could only earn one of the four disciplines found in the
Citizenship merit badge pamphlet.
