On Presidents Day, how well do you know your U.S. history? (440 hits)

In advance of Presidents Day, a U.S. history quiz was written by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation. Some 41,000 Americans took it, with dismal results.

Even in the state with the best performance, Vermont, only 53 percent of the respondents passed the quiz, the foundation said. Louisiana ranked last, with 28 percent passing.

The survey outcome “demonstrates why a greater emphasis on American history learning is essential to the nation,” the Woodrow Wilson Foundation said. Established in 1945, the foundation says it “identifies and develops the nation’s best minds to meet its most critical challenges.”

Take the quiz yourself. And if you miss question 12, well, shame on you.
