Needs better clues.

Good, but I would try to find some way to seperate William and Hannah Penn from the clues, it seems as if it's a repeat.

It definetly makes sense to make Lafayette an honorary citizen, but the rest I don't get. Why make the Penns citizens postumously but not the other colonial founders? At least they could be considered American though, based on the definition. Sure Mother Teresa and Wallenberg were great humanitarians, but I'm not sure that that is enough. (I'm not knocking either of their achievements, I just feel that the honor should be for someone who provided significant service to the US but weren't citizens.) Churchill makes the least sense since he was a foreign head of state.

Wasn't Kazimierz Pułaski granted honorary citizenship recently?

I thought Anne Frank had it too, I guess I was wrong.

As a kid I didn't know who the Polish guy was, but we got a day off of school to honor him.

I thought the last one was Kościuszko, and I kept trying every possible spelling I could think of. Turns out I had the spelling right the first time, but it was the wrong guy.

This is one time I feel a bit guilty for typing only last names, otherwise I never wd. have gotten the top right correct. And now I know where the name for the skyway in New Jersey came from. Sporcle = education and a correct guess on "Jeopardy" sometimes.
Comment below threshold:

Entering "Penn" shouldn't give two answers away.
Apr 23rd, 2013 at 20:16 GMT
Please tell me I'm not the only one who tried "Schindler" for question #3.

Great quiz--I've rated it a 5! --Primarily because of it's color scheme and straight-forwardness. I'm surprised the list is not longer. I guess U.S. citizenship isn't handed out like free candy to just anybody... (unless perhaps you break the law by immigrating illegally.)

I really thought Anne Frank was given the honor too. Guess I was wrong.

More people need to know about Raoul Wallenberg and what he did.
