That’s not an easy quiz. I had no clue on the TV show question, since I never watched it.

I got 13 out of 20.
Funny thing is, most of my correct answers came from viewing HBO’s John Adams...
Who says you can’t learn anything from television! :-)

Not an easy test by any stretch of the imagination. I only got 14 of the 20 correct.

You are absolutely right about the HBO John Adams series. I remembered Adams’ defense of the British soldiers from that series when answering the question about it in the quiz.

I got 15 out of 20, but I realized fairly quickly that there was only one person/answer for each question and each wrong answer left the person in the answer pool.

Except for the West Wing question I found it a challenging quiz.

IMHO, The test is a poor gauge of political knowledge. We don’t know this stuff because we don’t need to know and 200 year old history is “conceptual” in our lives.

While I was able to figure out the TV question only by realizing that this was a single answer to each founder, I think that this excellent quiz should be renamed "Constitutional Founders Quiz" as all the questions revolve around the 1787 Convention.

I personally consider the generic "Founders" to range from the Mayflower Compact through the Election of 1800 when the incumbent was defeated by his VP. AND let us not forget the gallant LADIES amongst them, they must never be ignored!
