Know-nothing \Know"-noth`ing\, n.
   A member of a secret political organization in the United
   States, the chief objects of which were the proscription of

   Note: The party originated in 1853, and existed for about
         three years. The members of it were called
         Know-nothings, because they replied "I don't know," to
         any questions asked them in reference to the party.
         [1913 Webster]
