Three months wasn't long enough to break a logjam at the top, and we wound up with five co-winners for the summer game. Congratulations to @DBF, @FarawayFriend, @lelliott19, @Stony, and @Wallyfish, all of whom missed only one question apiece during June, July, and August. All have been winners in the past.

Here are the scores for all the players who had at least three correct answers, or an average of one per month, during the summer game.

That was a real tough thing all summer long!! Congrats to all my co-winners and a big thank you to all submitters of questions and all who played.
I'm only ranking top because of the generous scoring by @hoosier, who occasionally allowed several alternative replies to some questions. Thank you for that!
And I can tell you, I'm still at a loss how anyone (and there were more than 6!) could find out about the one question I really missed. It was about someone who was not a combattant but did a lot for the Army and became a popular target for enemy snipers. I half-jokingly answered "Lincoln", but actually it was Thaddeus Lowe - and for the life of me I still have no idea how I could have found out about him.
Unfortunately the source given did not open for me, so it will remain a mystery.
Therefore hats off to all who answered that one correctly - you are the real Trivia Kings and Queens here!

Congrats to the winners and all who played. I spent way too much of my summer mornings researching the questions. I am at Chautauqua for much of my summer and the wifi is painfully slow. Thanks Andrea for bringing up the Balloon boy question. That wound was just starting to heal too.

Thanks to Hoosier and Ami as they gave up a piece of their summer too by keeping the game going. Maybe next summer we could have a two or three question Monday with answer divulgement Friday mornings during the summer season. That way we get our trivia fix without losing our precious summer time.
