Carl's Quiz

Posted: Wednesday, Feb 20th, 2013




What is the Driftless Area? 1.) An island off the coast of Florida, 2.) A Midwestern region that escaped glaciation during the last glacial period, 3.) A part of the Atlantic Ocean, 4.) The windiest spot on Earth



The answer to last week’s quiz is: OK, this was a trick question. Of the people listed, Franklin has the most places named after him, however, he never served as president. Of the four presidents listed, Lincoln has the most places named in his honor, but he is actually second to George Washington, who tops the list of all presidents.
