29/30.
The one I missed was who said “Give me Liberty or give me death!” I thought it was Thomas Paine. I was incorrect.

28/30.

I missed the one about liquor importation (21st amendment) and about the President born in Texas. I was sure Bush was born in Connecticut, but was equally sure that Eisenhower was born in Pennsylvania. Fail.

25 out of 30. Number 23 threw me off. Amendment on prohibition was negated by a later amendment therefore I figured it was no longer current.

23 of 30. I thought I was a genius, until I hit question 21. At that point, I should have gone with flipping a coin instead of my knowledge.

The famous prohibition amendment was repealed by another amendment. That repealing amendment banned the importation of liquor into states which banned it.

I got that one right. It was 7 others that I embarrassed myself on.

Missed no. 23 about a current ratified and current amendment. I did not have a clue and guessed wrong. Got the rest but I am a good guesser. How many dry states are there?

Your Score is 30
Perfect score! Maybe you should run for President!

I even knew how many states there are, unlike an occupant of our White House.
