New Mexico state quiz

If you can pronounce Tesuque and Pojoaque correctly, if you can greet your friends in English, Spanish, and Navajo, if your front yard is gravel instead of grass, you will probably do well on this test.

You don't have to be a genius to score well here, just a nerd and a trivia freak like me. There are a couple of sneaky questions here. Did you know that Lew Wallace was also a general in the Federal Army and fought at Shiloh? Too bad he got there so late, but his division acquitted themselves well.
