Only 5 -- the one about "where was the battle of Bunker Hill fought" threw me off b/c I was looking for "Bunker Hill" in the answers.

Also, they didn't ask the most important question: WHO WON?

I got 8/10. I don't mind one of the two I missed; the other was near :thatsright: territory, though my incorrect answer wasn't totally dumb.

One of the stops on the cruise Mrs. SVPete and I took last year was in Boston, and I got a book on the American Revolution when we visited Lexington.

Should've gotten the Ticonderoga question correct, but I let my thinking get away from me.  :thatsright:

I was surprised at the total size of the Continental Army.

I missed the same two Qs. I was also surprised by the size of the Continental Army, and didn't take the time to remember when Ticonderoga was taken, :thatsright: , which would have pointed me in the right direction.
