What Everyone Should Know About 'Merica

This is the final test I created to teach my brother about America and American history and government. It's the compilation of selected questions from three previous tests I gave him that were "open book."

The quiz is also open for others to take to step up and learn about America but it is primarily for my brother to test his 'Merica knowledge and get him ready for college.
