On Monday, our nation will celebrate its 221st birthday.
In this era where countries in Europe are forming conglomerate nations, it is refreshing to say we remain fully independent.
You know July 4, 1776, was the day of infamy when the Declaration of Independence was adopted, but can you answer other questions about your nation's history?
Did you know that for those wishing to become American citizens, they must take a very in-depth test.
So in the spirit of '76, we offer you the following sampling of questions from the American citizenship test.
It should be easy for you, since you're an American citizen.
See how you do, and if you don't do so well, maybe it's time for a refresher on the history of the greatest nation around.
This is your chance to have some fun with today's paper and may we add our own sentiments by saying, God bless America!
