20-question American Revolution quiz

CLICK HERE FOR THE STORY OF THE FLAG! Consider this proposition: “One cannot really understand and appreciate American values and the exceptional nature of the United States of America if one does not have a thorough grounding in the history of the American Revolution.”

While you’re considering it, take the 20-question American Revolution quiz and see how much you do know [hat tip Charles Anderson].

And if you can get more than my own score, ahem, I’ll give you a loud cheer--and probably get you along to the next pub quiz.

  5. 19/20. The one wrong was the Hale quote - I thought it was Washington.

    18 out of 20. Things aren't looking to bad for my upcoming Citizen's exam...

    Nathan Hale and Mr Armistead fooled me.

    (But the "Haym Saloman" question was a guess; never heard of him!)
