'The South Won the Civil War?' Beach Babes Bomb Watters' World Memorial Day Quiz - Fox Nation:
"On Memorial Day, O'Reilly Factor correspondent Jesse Watters visited Jones Beach in Wantagh, N.Y, to find out whether the revelers there knew why they had the opportunity to spend the day at the ocean-- and not at work or school.
"Do you know why you're off today?" Watters asked.
"Why..." a young woman responded, visibly trying to think of the correct answer.
"America?" another guessed.
"Who did America fight in the Revolutionary War?" Jesse asked some other beachgoers: receiving answers including 'France' and 'China'.
One man confused the battle for independence with the war our nation fought just under four score and seven years later.
"The Revolutionary War? [We fought] ourselves," a young man said.
The reasoning for that 19th Century conflict also proved a conundrum to those on the beach.
"What was the Civil War about?" Jesse asked.
"I couldn't be able to tell you," a young black man answered.
One vacationer vaguely stated that the Civil War was fought over "civilization".
