A Marist poll found that 26 percent of Americans surveyed could not correctly identify from which country the 13 original colonies declared independence.
Those 18-29 polled even worse, with only 60 percent getting the answer correct. A full 33% were unsure.
Men scored better than women (81% to 67%), while those age 45 and over were correct more often than younger respondents (78% to 67%).
The is one of the first times I've been proud to be an old guy.
Since it's a holiday, I won't rant about the youth of today.
If you're part of the 26%, we declared independence from Great Britain. Now get back to your day off.
