Filed under Celebrations, Celebrations Polls, Featured, Living

Just in time for the July 4th weekend, the Marist Poll has asked Americans in which year the United States declared its independence.  And, the result is many Americans need to brush up on their American history.

Only 58% of residents know that the United States declared its independence in 1776.  26% are unsure, and 16% mentioned another date.

There are age differences on this question.  Younger Americans are the least likely to know the correct answer.  Only 31% of adults younger than 30 say that 1776 is the year in which the United States broke away from Great Britain.  59% of residents between 30 and 44 report the same.  Americans 45 to 59 — 75% — are the age group most likely to have the correct answer.  Among those 60 and older, 60% report that 1776 is the year in which the United States declared its independence.

When it comes to gender, men — 65% — are more likely to respond with 1776 than are women — 52%.

And, for the second year, about one in four Americans doesn’t know from which country the United States declared its independence.  While 76% correctly cite Great Britain, 19% are unsure, and 5% mention another country.

A comparable proportion of Americans were similarly informed at this time last year.  At that time, 74% thought the United States declared its independence from Great Britain, 20% were unsure, and 6% mentioned another country.

80% of those 60 and older, 77% of those 45 to 59, and 77% of those between 30 and 44 report the nation’s founding fathers revolted against Great Britain.  This compares with 67% of those under the age of 30 who say the same.

Men — 83% — are more likely than women — 68% — to know that the United States declared its independence from Great Britain.

    And the U.S. didn’t really break free on July 4, 1776. The colonies declared their indendence on that day, but the real date of independence was more accurately Sept. 3, 1783, when the Treaty of Paris was signed, ending the conflict and making independence official.

    This happens because Social Studies has become an educational bastard son of every school system in the country. All the mandated standardized tests do not test or measure Social Studies. It’s simply not taught because it’s not on the test! it is negligence of criminal magnitude. All the math and science can not save an isolated population without critical thinking and historical awareness. Our future leaders know more about pop culture than American culture. Much of this is promoted by a system of “edutainment” that sacrifices knowledge for students having fun in class. We are training a lost generation and it should be recognized they will be pushing our wheelchairs and passing out meds even though they cant read a clock unless it is digital. Why do we accept the fact our children largely will be less informed, less motivated, and less capable than we can make them. Recovering from the recession makes novdiffetencevif no one intelligent enough is left to take over. What happened to this country?

    Pretty Sad. What are they teaching in schools? Obviously not American history. The younger respondents get the answer wrong more than the older respondents. Education isn’t what is used to be.

    I have gotten comments when I ask people about July 4th, Memorial Day or Labor Day… Fireworks and picnics, the start of summer and the end of summer respectively. It is all well and good to celebrate these holidays, but at lest take one second out of your life to know what they are about. We do have Google you know.

  23. Debbie Barnum on July 4th, 2011 3:45 pm

    It is not surprising that the statistics show the younger they are, the less likely they are to know. The schools don’t teach history anymore…they are more interested in what first and second graders know about “alternative lifestyles” than what they know about history! Our country has been ruined by our own schools and teachers..go figure!

    This is sad and scary. If the cost of Freedom is eternal vigilance, we’re behind on our payments. There is another story out only recently that the TSA swarmed various public transportation venues other than airports over 8,000 times last year, “interviewing” travelers and conducting warrantless searches (pat downs). The story in question mentioned the Tampa Greyhound station in particular. I have heard no hue and cry over this, no outrage. Nothing on the mainstream news. Evidently, we’re not too hip to the Fourth Amendment, either.

    It’s truly a sad thing that fewer and fewer people are aware of the history of this country which allows those on the right like Palin, Bachman, et. al. to attempt to rewrite it to suit their political ends. They may seem to be easy targets but their ignorance of American history, both distant and recent is truly alarming.

  49. Clark on July 11th, 2011 5:18 pm

    Guillermo, from my POV, it’s the left trying to revise history. Tea Party types are generally Strict Constitutionalists; and Libertarians and Conservatives often are, as well. I find that It’s usually the left who want to reinterpret the Constitution and our history out of context with the Founder’s intentions and actual events. You can’t take a swipe at an entire philosophy based on the admittedly ignorant and embarrasing remarks of a few who claim that philosophy. Palin was interesting for a while; but in my opinion, any thinking person, no matter what their political bent, has dropped any idea of giving her any kind of national platform, especially after she tried to spin and justify her gaffe instead of admitting it. That shows an intellectual dishonesty we can’t afford in those who hold office, and in fact, too many who are already in office are possessed of it.

    BTW, in your question as posted, it would be, “I wonder how those in the Tea Party FARED in the poll?”

    The homophones’ll getcha if ya don’t watch out!

  50. Howard Brazee on July 11th, 2011 5:57 pm

    Clark – Strict Constitutionalists will be 100% against us participating in undeclared wars.

  51. Clark on July 11th, 2011 11:12 pm

    Agreed. We should never have gottten into the conflicts we’ve been in since WWII without the consent of Congress; the Constitution requires it; and if more U.S. Americans (remember Miss Teen S.C.?) realized that, and were willing to get off their backsides and holler about it, backed by the knowledge of how things are SUPPOSED to work in this country, we wouldn’t have gotten into most, if not all of them in the first place, instead of wasting blood, treasure, time and effort trying to figure out how to win them decisively, or how to get out of them without leaving things more screwed up than they were when we went in.

    This gets right back to what’s between the lines of the article on which we’re supposedly commenting. This goes a lot farther and deeper than just knowing about Independence Day. This is about the lack of knowledge and understanding among the population of civics, history, geography, and more. It’s about the lack of patience or desire (take your pick) of people to pay attention and learn these things, and care about them; it’s about the self-involvement of a people who have gotten so used to the ideas of instant gratification, and that they’re entitled and have rights, that they’ve forgotten about the responsibilities and obligations that go with those rights; and they don’t realize that they’re ENTITLED to absolutely NOTHING; that whatever you have needs to be EARNED, and not handed out to you on a silver platter. THAT’S what makes something yours; earning it. And what scares me is that we’re not EARNING the title of Citizen anymore. We just expect it while we fiddle with our electronic gadgets and watch Jackass, and listen to “music” that is angry and complaining and selfish and sometimes downright mean in it’s lyrics. What the hell happened to “Ask not what your country can do for you…”

    One of my favorite quotes, and from an avowed socialist no less, is from George Bernard Shaw: “Democracy is a device that ensures we shall be governed no better than we deserve.” Truth is truth, wherever you find it, eh?
