Suprising (some would call it shocking) answers came from beachgoers in New York to the questions about why Americans celebrate Memorial Day when O'Reilly Factor correspondent Jesse Watters visited Jones Beach in Wantagh, N.Y.

Watters asked revelers whether they knew why they had the opportunity to spend the day at the ocean-- and not at work or school, according to Fox Nation.

"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.
