Oh, 1776... Of Course!

According to THIS ABC News article today, among young Americans aged 18-29 surveyed in a new Marist poll, 68% did not know that the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776. (41% were "unsure," while 27% gave an incorrect year.)

Maybe you had to be alive for the Bicentennial in 1976 for that date to be indelible.
