13 out of 14 Thank you my Ursuline nuns who really spent time on history and the value of that knowledge to keep us free. Great educators one and all.

Love the history quiz section. 10 out of 14… not too bad.

I enjoyed this quiz. History came alive to this western girl when we spent 13 years with the military in Maryland. I do get both of the heated tariff issues confused . It was a pressure time for the colonies and both of these tariffs were extra burdening in several ways. Thanks for your quizzes. They spark my mind from time to time!

I never was a history buff when I was younger unless it was local to me on the West Coast. I remember studying early American history but it never really sunk in. I was overly surprised I only missed 3. (About 50% I think were guesses). Great quiz and I think I’m still learning which is always good.

I got 11 out of 14. I need to do some study on the colonial history. It’s been a while since I have.

I missed #10 .I knew all the rest.I learn so much taking the on line courses from Hillsdale college .I have loved America History my whole life.

I too missed #10 and knew the rest. I thought there were German mercenaries who fought in the revolution!

Well, I guess I’m answering my own question. The German mercenaries, Hessians, fought on the side of the British; not the Americans!

I was thinking the same thing. Wasn’t Pulaski German? And there was a German who helped Washington at Valley Forge (forget his name) to get the troops trained.

I’m with you Fred. I really enjoy those Hillsdale College courses.

I missed one. (Who knew that a colony missed the Continental Congress meeting in 1774?) There were some that I knew, a few educated guesses, and a few lucky guesses.

that is the one I missed too. I blamed NY – because there were so many Tories there. Was surprised it was Georgia.

I am surprised , and disappointed also. I thought my memory of early American History was better. I missed three. Maybe not too bad for an old WW2 Vet, eh?

These American history tests are great fun. Easy, of course, but who wants to overtax your brain cells?

Well, got 3 wrong, which surprised me cuz I haven’t studied this topic since I learned about it at school. Which leads me to wonder….how well would a current student of American history do on this test? Anyone out there got someone they can spring it on and leave a comment?

Oh, that would be interesting! Any high school teachers out there want to give it a try? Or people with private-school-educated grandchildren? Personally, I remember very little of this from high school; I’m just interested in history, so I read about it more than many people would.

Based on what I have seen from the very expensive private high school my grand daughter attended ( that sent 8 to Ivy League schools this year for more indoctrination) The history teacher could not pass the test because she would be too busy telling the students how much they should hate the founding fathers and the nation.

with today’s education losses… I doubt there are many in our COLLEGES that could pass this test. and for sure, high schoolers today woulndn’t have the foggiest idea of the locations mentioned let alone what happened there, when, or why! :(

9 out of 14. Not bad for a lot of guess work. I wasn’t around in them there days.
