We had out the American Citizenship Quiz for Thanksgiving. For never being in the right country at the right time to take American History I did pretty good :-)

I'd bomb on a Canadian History test.

So would I - I missed that too.
1-3 Canada
4-6 USA
7-9 Canada
9-12 USA
I missed tons of stuff. Why I'm glad our kids grew up in one school district.
Also education in the 70s was pretty awful.
