    Maybe the 26% were mostly illegal immigrants.

    Your Star... you just said 84% and 26%. Add those two numbers up. Not attacking you, and it was obviously an error, but it is kind of funny on a thread like this.

    I learned the American Revolution at 4 different times in school. I don't know if that's the case in non-Pennsylvania schools, but there is no excuse for not knowing this, poor education or not, if you are an American over the age of 10.

    I doubt that it was the illegal immigrants... Are you trying to say the American Public has more of a brain than for example: Sara Palin a Vice President Candidate????
    This 26% are surely the Sara Palin supporters and the majority of the Tea-Baggers !!!

    C'mon CC. Cut her some slack. You know that most people here can't do basic math. Hell, I work in accounting and I pretty gave up here on people being able to do elementry mathematics. I even give Mr. V full passes on bad math. Not going to happen. We're better off trying to get them to use google to fact check before posting. And don't even start on trying to get people to first read what they write before posting to see if it's relevant to what they are responding too. That is clearly too damn hard.

    You say 26% And the younger the person are likely to be, the more the chances he or she would not know the right response.... Now I wondering , how young would that be????
    Well, I'll make a wild guess, about 3 or 4 YEARS OLD OR LESS ???? HONESTLY !!!

    So what's the problem with letting Texan Conservatives further monkey around with US history textbooks? It's already in the toliet. How much worse can it get?

    The South and Young show the worst. So letting a place in the south full of young people get even worse US history education is hardly something to be worried about.

    Still, I think a better question is do those people polled know how to find the information? Any moron can memorize dates. But being able to research and put facts together into meaning is what education is really about.
