MA State History Quiz part 2

This is part two of my Massachusetts State History Quiz. It contains a lot of trivia and fun facts about my state. It is not hard to get a high score, you may even learn something.

This is part of a Social Studies assignment for ninth grade. I thought this would be more fun than creating a board game.I hope I can get a good grade, and give my teacher a laugh.
