How Well Do You Know Your American History?
Dust off those thinking caps, and see how much you remember from those school days. I have posted five questions about general American history. How do you stack up against some of the other roses in our garden? Although I can't give away any prizes, I will announce the names of the smartest rose(s) on the yahoo loop. Come now, give it a try.
1. What was the single bloodiest day of the Civil War?
2. How many countries did the British fight during the American War of Independence?
3. On what hill did the Battle of Bunker Hill take place?
4. What was the first state to secede from the Union?
5. Did the U.S. ever attack Canada?
You can post your answers right as a comment to the blog.
Don't forget, it is American Rose month. Consider entering our Love, American Style Contest. And the historical chat this month will be on July 17. We will discuss research for the American Rose novel.
