26pc of Americans don't know what country US fought to gain its independence
New York, July 3 (ANI): Don't know anything about history? Well, then don't worry, as you are not alone.
A new poll has found that a whopping one in four Americans have no clue which country the United States declared its independence from.
In a new Marist College poll, a shocking 26 percent failed to identify Great Britain as the country the US colonies fought to gain its independence, according to CNN.
That includes the 20 percent who were "unsure" and another six percent who thought the US fought a revolution, starting in 1776, against another country -- a list that included France, China, Japan, Mexico, and Spain, the poll found, reports the New York Post.
The poll surveyed 1,004 Americans between June 17 and 24. The survey has a margin of error of three percentage points. (ANI)
