Flags, parades, barbeques, and fireworks are part of our American culture. Our annual celebration of the signing of the Declaration Of Independence has been part of our national identity helping to intertwine all Americans as part of our foundation in American Civics. Starting with the pledge of allegiance in elementary schools, American history in part of all levels of our educational system. Here is a basic overview of Independence Day.
The Fourth of July—also known as Independence Day or July 4th—has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution. On July 2nd, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. From 1776 to the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with festivities ranging from fireworks, parades, and concerts to more casual family gatherings and barbecues.
With this, as a core event supposedly taught in the schools, this commonly referred Fourth Of July celebration should bring us as Americans together as we celebrate the official launch of the fight for freedom. Why doesn’t it universally? Those responsible for teaching our children have minimized this event, attributed negative connotations to it, or simply omitted it from their lessons. The results are in, a growing number of students can’t answer basic questions about Independence Day.
From Campus Reform
Ahead of the Fourth of July, Campus Reform spoke with young Americans to ask them basic questions about the nation’s founding.
Young Americans and students were asked by Digital Reporter Eduardo Neret what the holiday commemorates, which year the country declared independence, which nation the United States declared independence from, and what which was fought for American independence.
Many could not answer these questions. Some answered that America gained its independence in the 20th century, while others said the corresponding war was the Civil War, World War I, and even World War II.
As I say all the time, education and immigration policies are destroying our American culture. With schools attacking America and suppressing our real history, they are winning is changing their hearts and minds and we are letting them. Take a minute, if you have children, and ask yourself why do you send your children to Marxist portals, called public education, and even worst paying a ton to send them to progressive private schools?
