What I am about to ask is very easy to answer if one uses a search engine, but I'm not looking for the answer to what the quotation means but rather to whether people know what the quotation means.
I'm also interested to learn whether there is a difference between how many Americans know it and how many non-Americans (non-USA) know it.
So without looking it up or using a search engine, can you simply off the top of your head identify in your mind the historical incident described and the larger body of work from which these words are taken.
If you know these two things, use a target 🎯 emoji to indicate that you do and are from the USA and if you do not know use a thinking 🤔 emoji to indicate that you do not know and that you are from the USA. If you know but are not from the USA and are not a USA resident or immigrant please indicate that you know by using a rocket 🚀. Finally, if you do not know and are not from the USA or a USA resident or a USA immigrant you may indicate this with a fist bump 👊.
Here is the quotation:
"On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes"
