maxkirk1 made a great U.S. History A-Z quiz, which I enjoyed a lot. I am not trying to steal his idea - I just feel that many more fun quizzes could be made like his. Here is the link to his: http://www.sporcle.com/games/maxkirk1/us_hist_a_to_z

Great quiz-- could not remember J or Z, but having a history degree, this brought back a lot of things I had not thought of in awhile

thank you Black Ops for #2
Feb 15th, 2011 at 01:05 GMT
i would accept zimmermann note as well, because it is commonly known by that name as well. otherwiswe good quiz.
Feb 15th, 2011 at 01:29 GMT
Perhaps you could include Yellow Press as an alternative? I learned it as such in History class.
Feb 15th, 2011 at 17:43 GMT
I added Zimmermann Note and Yellow Press. Thanks for the suggestions.

I love the quiz...i just think it could use some color!
Mar 24th, 2011 at 23:20 GMT
Zimmermann... Two Ns! Great quiz.
Mar 25th, 2011 at 01:38 GMT
@ myb555 Your color comment has been noted. I have never changed the color on quizzes so let me know if you like or dislike the colors I chose. Thanks!

Even though this is an 'A-Z' quiz, I think you should put the full names. For example, 'Susan B. Anthony' and not just 'Anthony.' Also, the clue for 'Q' would be better worded if it said something like: 'The 6th presidents middle name.'
Mar 27th, 2011 at 03:26 GMT
@ quizzler2 I agree with you on the full names and have added them. As for the "Q" clue, I think it is too straight forward and easy to word it as "What is the 6th president's middle name". I guess I want it to be a little more challenging. Thanks for the input though.

The KKK werent just an anti-black group, they were against pretty much every foreigner with a different skin color.
Aug 17th, 2011 at 01:41 GMT
I'm all for accuracy, but if you're going to give credit for "Douglas" with 1 s, then you should give credit for "Zimmerman" with 1 n. Especially since I knew Douglass had 2 s's, but didn't know Zimmermann had 2 n's. :)
Aug 17th, 2011 at 17:28 GMT
@ weloveum Your request seems fair enough so I now accept Zimmermann with one "n".
