    It's been too long, so I thought I'd try another one.

    It's embarassing since it is one of my WEAKEST areas of history! But I guess I agree with those who've taken it -- we're probably ALL wrong together!

    All my answers were pure guesswork, and I didn't match the most popular answers. Either I'm smarter than all of you, or you are all smarter than me. :D
