Pop Quiz


In the course of conversation, I became aware that my daughter was woefully weak in historical information, especially when certain events occurred.
So, just for the fun of it, see how you do on these events. Year only.

1. Pearl Harbor (apropos for today)?

2. U.S. Constitution written?

3. Emancipation Proclamation?

4. Sputnik launched?

5. Lewis and Clark Expedition?

6. Korean War?

7. Women could vote?

8. President McKinley assassinated?

9. Hiroshima bombed?

10.Mayflower landed on Plymouth Rock?

Bonus: War of 1812?

Give yourself half credit it you're within one year.

Ans. 1. 1941 2. 1787 3. 1863 4. 1957 5. 1803-6
6. 1950-52 7. 1920 8. 1901 9. 1946 10. 1620 (bonus 1812!)

How'd you do?

Easy to miss.

I was clueless about McKinley, but not too shabby on the remainder!

Pretty easy questions, actually. But I'm always surprised at how little the American public knows about our history.

1. 1941; 2. 1991?; 3. 1863; 4. 1957; 5. 1803; 6. 1950-1953; 7. 1920?; 8. 1899; 9. 1945; 10. 1620; 11. (Bonus) 1812-1814
You have number 9 wrong. Hiroshima and Nagasaki were in the summer of 1945. I missed 2. FAIL.

Oops. I hit the 6 key, not the 5. My bad.
