MA State History Quiz part 3

Here is part three of my MA State History Quiz. It contains Massachusetts trivia. This test should be extemely easy. but you may actually learn something.

This is an assignment for ninth grade Social Studies. I thought this would be less boring than watching me play a dumb old board game. I had a few laughs making it, I hope you have a few laughs taking it.
