It's been a while since one's been posted so here's one about the close of WWII and Hitler's bunker:  http://dsc.discovery.com/guides/history/unsolvedhistory/hitler/quiz/quiz.html  90 of 100 but I fudged just a little ... not much.  Be careful where you drag your mouse or you'll get constant Nissan ads so move mouse left between questions.

80 for me.  Tougher than I imagined. 
Don't worry about avoiding temptation. As you grow older, it will avoid you.

Maybe I should deduct one correct answer and say 9/15 instead of 10.  I clicked on one answer without even looking just to be able to go to the next page.  I didn't care what the answer was...just can not stand  Louise Veronica Ciccone

Forgot...I got it right. (Maybe I should just pick without looking more often.)

26. Really fuzzy on amendments, think I missed just about every amendment related question.

Thanks for the fix! Hehe, I need an amendment cheat sheet, other than the first four I almost always get them wrong.

26 here.  I was a little reluctant to take it.  I didn't really want to know how lacking I was.  And on one I could kick myself, I marked a knee jerk answer which was wrong but really knew it (Uh huh ...).

Hehe, yah, I blew one question that I knew the answer to, guess I'll chalk it up to pure brain fade.

And I was reluctant as well. Some no brainers but some good ones, too, a nice mix.

It was a nice mix. Got 24 here. I just blew up on the last 9. Only got 3 right of the bunch.

Found this interesting from that site: "While John F Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln easily come to mind, there are two other Presidents who were assassinated in office. James Garfield was shot only 4 months after taking office and died 80 days later. William McKinley was shot at the Pan-American Exposition while greeting the public and died soon after. Four other Presidents have died in office of natural causes. Four other presidents (Reagan, Truman, Ford, and Jackson) all survived attempted assassinations. "

It's nice when they give you more info after the quiz is over.
