I scored a shabby 77% /blush
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.
Eeek! I got 23 out of 30 correct. I would have thought it would be higher.
Go for it!
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 Amendment on prohibition was negated by a later amendment therefore I figured it was no longer current.
25 right boy do I need to re-read my history books
28/30. I still dont get the prohibition one. I missed who was born in TX too.
This thing would go postal if it hit some ping lists.
You are too kind. I shouldn’t be elected dog catcher.
You have to watch those libertarians. They want to take over the government and do nothing to you!
I got ‘em all.
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The famous prohibition amendment was repealed by another amendment.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 thought the same thing.
Missed: 23, 24, 28, 29
I got 26 right so I guess I’m not too ignorant! But have to admit I guessed a lot on the amendment questions...
I wish I would have had time to study! LOL I admit I don’t know much about amendments. Been out of school waaaay too long!
97% I really need to remember how many amendments were passed out of Congress but not ratified.
I got that one right. It was 7 others that I embarrassed myself on.
