Here is a 30 question civil war quiz
This quiz is criminally easy. 30 for 30 for me.
Same here, 30 for 30
We ought to get at least a glass of beer!
I would if I drank alcohol and would have to be old enough if I wanted to, but thanks for the offer
Should I admit to missing two?
I got five wrong - mostly those about what Lincoln said about himself. Also, the submarine question. My bad.
You guys are smarter than me.
I underestimated the site asking the questions and assumed they were looking for "finding shoes" in the Gettysburg question. So I missed that one because I assumed they still held to the commonly held answer/myth.
On the other hand, they have not updated the latest research showing that more than 600,000 deaths occurred.
I feel better now...thanks @Mike Serpa and @Drew ...I scored 24 - worst score so far - but a couple of times I hit the wrong button/didn't read down far enough That's my excuse It's back to the books for me...
You're welcome. Misery loves company!
I call foul on the submarine question. Had never heard of the Alligator until I joined CWT, but doesn't that count?
that's great if you got them all. nice job. I thought a few of them tricky, even for civil war buffs!
I got the Gettysburg address question wrong, I guess only a half glass of beer for me.
It counts only if you got it right. Don't worry if you missed it.
I never said I didn't have to guess on a couple.
I missed two.....not a bad quiz considering that most people taking it will know a lot less about the Civil War than we do.
26 out of 30 but I don't feel bad as the ones I missed weren't that important I don't think (e.g. there were five versions of the Gettysburg address; I said three and what did Lincoln think was his most important move to win the war; I said appoint Grant). Most were pretty basic stuff. Fun to do.
Missed one. I said there were at least two versions of the Gettysburg Address instead of five. Back to the books for me.
I missed five. Not as smart as you all.
Don't confuse smart with how much you've read, @donna. You are a smart cookie.
