So how did you do? Did you score an 80 or better? I hoe you did. I would bet against most people getting that score or higher, but that doesn’t mean you don’t know your American History. It just means you might not be familiar with some of the stranger details of American History that are almost never mentioned in the vast majority of American History books. So the next time you read something about American History, be sure to think for a second that there might be more to the people and the events you are reading about (even the fact some people may not have done some of the things mentioned or some of the events did not occur as portrayed in the passages). Good luck and enjoy your American History.
