Too Many Americans Don’t Know Why We Celebrate Fourth of July

Conservative Mark Dice interviewed Americans on the beach to find out what they had to say about why we celebrate July 4th. Turns out, far too many Americans don’t even know why the day exists.

The first person couldn’t tell Mark what country the U.S. declared its dependence from (hint: it was England).

Or when the Declaration of Independence was signed. Was it 1856, 1756, 1789, not sure on that one, according to the video.

And it only got worse from there.

Another person “assumed” the country was started in the 1800s, but said she wasn’t sure because she “wasn’t a history person.”

Another person even said we won the “Evolutionary War.”

Of course, Mark’s video only posts the most ridiculous responses he could gather. Unfortunately, didn’t seem to have much trouble finding numerous responses he could put together to show many Americans have no idea why we celebrate our Independence.

It’s a good reminder that the day off is not just a day out of the office. Instead, it’s a time to cherish the freedoms we have as a nation. Many people worldwide lack the opportunities of our country, yet we find ourselves taking them for granted far too often.

Take a look at the latest video and remember it might be worth taking another look at our nation’s past to remember why our freedoms remain so important today.
