I’m getting pretty tired of posts like these. Granted, I’m not American, and I had to check who was the president, but guess what? I have absolutely no idea, who was my own country’s first. And at what number we’re at now (this is because I suck at remembering numbers).
If you don’t know who’s the president now, that’s bad, but these… Some people just aren’t that great at history. I’m one of them. Geography is another subject I always had some troubles with.
^ Both Lincoln and Washington are on our money. We learn all about Washington and that fake story about the cherry tree in school, and hear it all the time. It’s impossible to not know if you’ve ever spent time in an elementary school in this country.
But still, seeing someone’s statue is completely different from meeting someone in real life.
