America's Birthday Quiz


In honor of tomorrow's holiday, I thought I'd link to a 4th of July quiz. This one is from AARP, and it's a history one.


Let me know how you do. I only got 70%. Some historical things I know, others not so much.

  1. I only got half of them right. History isn't my strong point :)

  3. I got 60%. I guess I better take a history refresher course :) Happy 4th!

    1. Some of those were kind of obscure.

  4. Ha! I got 40%. Very interesting factoids there, but not what I'd call your standard history. And I don't follow baseball AT ALL. Have a great 4th!

  5. I don't think I'll know much, so I'll give the quiz a miss. But happy 4th of July!

  7. You did better than me! I only got 30%. Pathetic!

    1. Some of them I knew from random things, others were kind of out there.

  8. I'm afraid to even try. History is NOT my strength!

    1. You should at least try it. You might surprise yourself.

  9. I got 3 out of 10. Sheesh. But that baseball question seems more like BASEBALL trivia, not 4th of July trivia (said the lawyer, arguing his case!)

    1. True. I missed that question. I don't follow baseball at all.

  10. Well, I started out as a history major - and I only got 50%. I wasn't even following baseball by 1983! Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

    1. There are so many easy quizzes out there. I didn't want to do that. I guess I found one that was too hard.

  12. I'm not going to tell you how many I got right (two, cough) - but my excuse is that I'm British! I now know a lot more than I did before.
