Default Fun quiz in honor of Independence Day.

I got 1 wrong. I did not know in which year fireworks were used in celebration of the Fourth of July. Give it a shot, it is only 11 questions.

How Well Do You Know US History?

Enjoy.

LOL. I had a US History teacher in high school who liked to pick on some of the students. One of his favorites was to ask a student, "In what year did Benjamin Franklin become president?" He'd let them search through the text book for several minutes before moving on. He would actually get away with it 2 or 3 times before he would inform them that he was never president. He was a fun teacher.

I only got seven. I would had 8, but I second guessed myself. Ah well, 7 is better than 6.

Should have looked it up before the test!
