The 4th of July | Founding Father Jesse Ventura?

Fourth of July Knowledge.jpg

We're about to celebrate America's Independence Day for 2017, and this year is proving to be just as eventful. As always, there are plenty of controversial political issues, personalities, and scandals that fill the media. But let's step away from all that and get back to the meaning of the holiday - America's sovereignty as a free nation. Do we remember how America was founded? In a series of man-on-the-street interviews, a popular YouTube prankster and media commentator asks passers-by at the beach questions about the history of the Fourth of July. Maybe it's the laid-back atmosphere of the seashore, but way too many American citizens seem hilariously clueless about our country's history.

Here are some answers to basic questions, such as:

What year did America declare independence? Answers included the years 1812, 1864, and 1984.

What country did America declare independence from? For some reason China, Mexico and the South came up quite a bit.

Who were some of the men that signed the Declaration of Independence? You'd be surprised to know that among the Founders are John Wilkes Booth, Jesse Ventura, and the Prophet Jeremiah.

Now, none of us is perfect, and few of us are true geniuses. That said, let's jog our memories back to history class when we were kids and recall that first Fourth of July: America declared independence from Great Britain on July 4th, 1776, and among the Founders of our nation were men like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and Alexander Hamilton. So if you're thankful for living with your family in a free and beautiful country like ours, that knowledge is the foundation of our celebrations. Have a wonderful Fourth of July.
