    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 :tongue: That's my excuse :wink: It's back to the books for me... :nerd:

    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!

    It counts only if you got it right. Don't worry if you missed it.

    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.

    Don't confuse smart with how much you've read, @donna. You are a smart cookie.
