I just took a history quiz that covered mostly basic stuff, or included completely random trivia that only a pretty hardcore junkie would know. If you know that basic stuff, you're considered a "True Patriot." To me, a "true patriot" would know a lot more about history than most people"”not just the basics but some of the more substantive details as well. All in all, a goofy quiz.
I've tried to make this quiz truly cover the gamut. I've thrown in a few questions I think any American citizen should be able to answer, a few more for those with an above-average interest in the subject, and then some for those who have Ambrose and McCullough on their bookshelves. Good luck"”and no Googling!
