As we celebrate the Fourth of July, a new poll reveals that 26 percent of Americans don’t know what country the U.S. declared independence from, a new poll finds. From NBC News:
The 26 percent includes 6 percent that are unsure that the United States fought any war of independence at all. Other respondents gave a range of countries that included France, China, Mexico, Spain and Japan, according to the pollsters at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y.
For the record, it was Great Britain we broke away from.
