Independence Daze: Some say US won independence from Mexico, Russia

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/independence-daze-some-say-us-won-independence-from-mexico-russia/article/2627731

Nearly a quarter of the nation gets the origin of Independence Day wrong, citing countries like Mexico, Russia and Afghanistan as the oppressive ruler the founding fathers moved to break away from in a 1776 "Declaration of Independence."

And according to a new poll, slightly more didn't know the year the colonies declared independence.
