Illegal aliens were here first, so they say. 8 of 10 , pretty good, considering I also went to a government school .

9 out of 10. Not bad for one of Italian ancestry.
I, too, did not get that the Indians lacked “weapons”.
Never too old to learn.

I have never known why people are so against Columbus. He was an explorer. Not his fault that some heads of state were so ruthless.

Had no idea what year he died, but I did well on this one. Portland, Maine is replacing the honor with “INDIGENOUS PEOPLE DAY” in their liberal attempt to change history.

I correctly answered that CC was Italian. However,there is strong evidence that he as actually born into a family of Spanish noblemen.

I got 7 out of 10. Should have known which ship he was on…. my mind is going. At least I got the important ones right.

7 out of 10. Not too bad, I guess, considering the quality of the teaching of history in public schools even in the 60s and 70s when I was in school.

The ancestors of the native Americans found North America first, then the Vikings found it much later. But because the knowledge didn’t become generally known to a good portion of the world, its hard to claim it was “discovered” by either (discoveries are shared knowledge). A few ancient Greeks understood steam power, but it didn’t become of use to the world until much later and only after what they knew had been lost, so I wouldn’t say the Greeks “discovered” steam power, Watt gets credit for a reason, as does Columbus.

If a guy gets the dunce hat two consecutive quiz’s, is his name engraved on it? I could be in trouble here.
