I do. And the Magna Carta in 1215, and all of Henry VIII's wives, Richard the Lion-hearted and Saladin, the defeat of the Spanish Armada, where the Beatles began - all the important stuff.

Funny you'd pick that. My world history teacher, 9th grade, said that was the only important battle to know the figures and date and stuff. Yeah, the rest of non American history... lol...

I wouldn't say it's totally irrelevant, but yes, outside the USA, you don't learn that at school, so you have to be interested in the 18th century's history to know such things. I have heard about Valley Forge in some TV programs (and maybe in Age of Empires III ?) but that's all.

We know you had a civil war. We know who George Washington was. No, we don't know the battles of your civil war (well regularly), we might have heard of Gettysburg, that's it. - I don't expect you to know that we had a civil war too, but I do expect you to know we exist. And that we are independent. And perhaps if you feel very knowledgeable to know about the Winter War. But you will be excused if you don't.

The Battle of Hastings was a bad example. We had that battle and the year it happened drilled into our brains in world history in 10th grade. Should have gone with Battle of Sablat. That's too obscure for most Americans.

I saw a similar argument from the other side earlier today. There were Americans on another quiz saying that they didn't know the names of Henry VIII's wives as they were not taught them which is something that is taught to us from a young age. As an Englishman I have never heard of Valley Forge. We are not taught about the American Revolutionary War in the UK (or at least I wasnt) so I suppose the smaller details of history are pretty irrelevant in other countries.

Valley Forge should be very relevant to England...if Washington's army fell apart there your country would be much, much larger than it is today!

Well not necessarily. The country would stay the same size, but the empire would have expanded. However, in the first half of the 20th century, the British Empire started to decline anyway

The British Empire slowly diminished because nations moved from colonies to independent nations peacefully and most became members of the British Commonwealth of Nations. The only Empire in history to do so.

I'm not sure why non-Americans *should* know about Valley Forge, even us British. Unless one is interested in that conflict, it is a minor detail.

It was Britain's war too. We weren't fighting ourselves, at least not in that particular war. So it's not only U.S. history but U.K. history too.

But 'we' were fighting ourselves until 'they' won - that was rather the point. There were plenty of colonists who fought for the Crown, and plenty of 'British' who supported the colonists (Thomas Paine being one prominent example). If the colonists had failed it might well have been called the second English Civil War - just as If the Confederacy had succeeded 'they' would doubtless have called it the Second Revolutionary War.

There should be NO favoritism in accepted spellings ... what's good for the goose... If you accept Venezia for Venice and Napoli for Naples because that is the way they were originally spelled, , then you must also accept Nieuw Amsterdam for New Amsterdam because that's the way THAT was originally spelled. (I patiently await your deletion)
