Do Your Patriotic Duty And Learn Some Things About America.
They teach you a bunch of stuff in school about America and her battle for Independence from the British. As such, we're all very familiar with the story of that long, hard battle for freedom. And, thanks to those patriots from so long ago, we now celebrate victory every Fourth of July by nearly setting ourselves on fire with explosives, by drinking way too much and by trying to eat so many corn dogs we'll barf.
What else could you possibly need to know?
Plenty, turns out. The U.S. Census recently put forth some pretty interesting facts — all of them terribly patriotic, of course — in their yearly facts about the Fourth of July release. And we figured these facts were interesting enough to pass the wisdom along your way. In inforgraphic form, of course.
