  18. Stanley Peek says:

    Love the daily quiz. Whenever I go to Borders bookstore, I always check out the issues of your various magazines, and usually buy one. Sometimes that is the only reason to go to the bookstore.

  19. Popsi says:

    What's with the peek-a-boo answer? It ain't no quiz it's a third grade history lesson – Aristotelian style.

    How's about the right answer gets left until after one has had a poke at it? The references for further reading/study are the 'smart' bit.

    Let's get back to the QUIZ!

  20. Dave Baruch says:

    I most definitely agree with Popsi. If at all possible, let's get back to the quiz.

  21. Russell Harley says:

  45. Marilyn Cawthon says:

    I'm glad that it is back.

  46. Charles Dishno says:

    I love the daily quiz but liked the old style better. I made me look up the answer. This one is too much like the old "open book" tests. How can we teach our kids anything if all they have to do is click on the answer button. By the way, I am 75 years old and learned everything, which I admit isn't much, the old fashioned way.
    Chuck Dishno

  70. Dilbert says:

    did we not have the same question not too long ago?
    the question looks very familiar.

  71. E.T. says:

    There really seems to be no quiz! A list of answers to a question are
    shown,BUT,there is no method for responding to the question.

  72. JOE says:

    WHEN DO I RECIEVE THE QUIZ , I ONCE RECIEVED AND ENJOYED???? I AM CURRENTLY A SUBSCRIBER OF "WW 11",
    & "HISTORY"

  73. Cheryl Maresilles says:

  74. Dilbert says:

    APRIL 4, 1865, THE UNION ARMY FINALLY CAPTURES RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, CAPITAL OF THE SECCESIONIST STATES OF AMERICA!

  75. Dilbert says:

    CORRECTION TO LATEST COMENT; DATE SHOULD READ:

    APRIL 3, 1865

    sorry!

  76. Dilbert says:

    the battle of Shiloh begins on this date in 1862. Federal troops of General U S Grant face off against Confederates under A S Johnston.

  77. Dilbert says:

    can we PLEASE! have an update to the Winner's List?
    hasn't been updated in three (3) months!

  78. jimmyd says:

    if i have to look at barrack obama one more time in one of your magazines i think ill puke!!! i realize he is the prez but really,in a civil war mag? because of cupcake art? i am a student of history and read your publications for that reason.if i wish to be inundated by images of our prez ill watch any news channel. other than that i enjoy your mags

  79. Dilbert says:

    The Battle of Chancellorsville begins; Stonewall Jackson will be fired upon by his own men.

  80. Dilbert says:

    Abraham Lincoln, 16th president of these United States, is buried on this date in Springfield, Illinois.

  81. Dilbert says:

    The Battle of the Wilderness begins on this date in 1864.
    nothing will be gained by either side.

  82. Mark Zotz says:

    I was so disappointed when I read the list of possible answers to today's trivia question. The nation of Colombia was spelled with a 'u' instead of an '0'. I did NOT expect to see that from your top level organization. Otherwise, I think the site, quiz, and everything you offer is top notch. I guess that's why the misspelling looked so bad. I know anyone can make an error, though. But so many make this error, and it's unfortunate this added to it.

  83. Dilbert says:

    May 20, 1861: Richmond, Virginia is named the new capital of the Confederate States of America

  84. Dilbert says:

    Senator Charles Sumner of Massachussetts is caned by Preston Brooks of South Carolina on this date in 1856.

  85. Dilbert says:

    Preston Brooks WAS NOT a senator; he was a congressman.
    surprising faux pas!

  86. Dilbert says:

    to illustrate the wealth of the pre-war South, the 1860 census reveals that in that year the per capita income in the Southern states was $3,978; while in the North, it was $2,040.

  87. Gerry Seaquist says:

    Sir;

    Lets stay in U.S. Lets be aware of our history. We need to have info on our country.

  88. Dilbert says:

    The Army of Northern Virginia crosses the Potomac River and enters Maryland on their way to Pennsylvania. 24JUN1863

  89. Gerry Seaquist says:

    Sir:

    It would be a good idea to include much more in the quizzes about the U.S.
    Our people have been dumbed down on our own country lets make the quiz help develop knowledge of our Nation.

  90. Rick Moore says:

    I am at the head of the list for this year and have not heard anything of the subscription to Aviation Histoy. I have recently moved, but my mail still goes to that address

  91. Dilbert says:

    once again remembering Gettysburg today, tomorrow and day after tomorrow and all those brave men who died there for the cause they believed in.

  92. Dilbert says:

    2 July 1863: On the second day of the Battle of Gettysburg, Confederate Vice President Alexander Hamilton Stephens goes to Washington City to discuss the prisoner of war issue with President Abraham Lincoln. President Lincoln refuses to meet with Stephens.

  93. Cosmo says:

    after the fall of Vicksburg to U.S. Grant on this date in 1863, it would be over 80 years before this city would celebrate Independence Day again.

  94. Apollo says:

    if Zachary Taylor was born in 1784 and died in 1850, that would make him 65 or 66 years old at the time of his death. in "today in history for 7/9/09, it states that he died at age 55. is this a typo?

  95. Apollo says:

    on 11JULY1864, Gral. Jubal Early and his Confederate forces reach the outskirts of Washington City; however, advances by the Southerners over the previous days are delayed allowing for more than 20,000 Union soldiers from various commands to arrive and defend the Federal capital. Gral. Early and his troops withdraw the following day.

  96. Cosmo says:

    on 17JUL1861, the United States begins issuing demand notes, commonly called "greenbacks".

  97. Dilbert says:

    24JUL1944: two US Marine divisions land on Tinian and capture it after 9 nine days of fierce fighting. SEMPER FI!

  98. Dilbert says:

    25JUL1944: U.S. First Army Division launches Operation Cobra around St. Lo, France

  99. Tommy West says:

    Dear Sir,

    Thanks for the terrific job that you do in the daily quiz. I would likE to point out an error, however, in today's quiz. The date mentioned is 1000 years off. The correct answer was 1974 instead of "2974" as you noted in your answer.

    Best regards,
    Tommy West

  100. Dilbert says:

    I WOULD REALLY LOVE TO READ HOW, SO FAR, THE MAJORITY OF READERS ANSWERING THE LATEST POLL JUSTIFY THIS COUNTRY GOING TO WAR WITH MEXICO. DO YOU ALL STILL BELIEVE IN "MANIFEST DESTINY"? TERM WHICH IS JUST A EUPHEMISM FOR THE ILLEGITIMATE GRABBING OF LANDS MUCH AS WAS DONE TO ALL OF THE NATIVE AMERICAN TRIBES THAT WERE HERE LONG BEFORE EUROPEANS ARRIVED AND CAUSED A HOLOCAUST WORSE THAN THE ONE ATTRIBUTED TO ADOLF H.
    THE U.S. WANTED TEXAS, CALIFORNIA AND ALL OF THAT TERRITORY, SO WHAT BETTER WAY TO GET IT BUT TO GO "TO WAR" WITH A MUCH MILITARILY INFERIOR COUNTRY.
    NO SIR! JUST AS THERE'S NO JUSTIFICATION FOR MOST WARS, THERE WAS NONE FOR THE ONE IN QUESTION HERE.

  101. Dilbert says:

    IT'S SO EASY FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE TO ANSWER THE QUESTION TO A PARTICULAR POLL BUT THEN NOT OFFER ANY TANGIBLE EXPLANATION FOR THEIR RESPONSE.
    SOME OF YOU, WHO CONTINUE TO "JUSTIFY" THE "MEXICAN WAR" SHOULD SUBMIT YOUR COMMENTS AS TO WHY YOU FEEL THE WAY YOU DO. IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO JUST SAY YES OR NO.
    I THINK THIS IS WHY HISTORY NET PROVIDED US WITH THIS POST A COMMENT FORUM, SO THAT READERS COULD COMMENT.
    SO LET'S HEAR FROM SOME OF YOU!

  102. Dave Baruch says:

    Dilbert is right. It was wrong to go to war against Mexico.

    I'm not a U.S. citizen, so this is an objective opinion.

    Dave Baruch.

  103. Dilbert says:

    Thank you, Dave Baruch.
    Whether your opinion is objective or subjective AT LEAST you have voiced your opinion.
    As the days go by and no additional comments are submitted I doubt if any CITIZEN of this country is going to be intelligent enough to submit an opinion.

  104. Cosmo says:

    21AUG1862: Jefferson Davis issues orders to the Confederate Army that Union Major General David Hunter is to be considered a "felon to be executed if captured" FOR SUGGESTING that Southern blacks be armed to fight for the Union.

  105. BenitoCamelo says:

    Ulysses S Grant is given command of federal forces in southern Illinois & southeastern Missouri on this date in 1861.

  106. Dilbert says:

    I must say today's Quiz is one of the dumbest ever. On such an important date (70th anniversary of WWII) the Quiz could have been much more enlightening.

  107. JAS says:

    Aren't you ever satisfied, Dilbert?

  108. John Jones says:

    JAS: you must be a teacher or professor or some such thing. The 3 times you've bothered to post something on this blog, it's been to call attention to another's blogger's comment. Why don't you comment on what one is really supposed to comment on? This is a site dedicated to History. Reserve your comments to this subject and stop calling attention to other blogger's comments.

  109. BenitoCamelo says:

    on this date, 7SEP1864, Gnl. William Tecumseh Sherman orders the evacuation of Atlanta.

  110. Dave Baruch says:

    The quiz refers to many different periods of history, which

    makes it so very interesting. I remember past lessons and

    books that i have read. Thanks a lot.

    Dave Baruch.

  111. John Jones says:

    the "Duke" of Normandy goes to war (and is killed as a result) because the "King" of France said he was fat. How ludicrous! Serves him right. I wonder which of these two countries is the bigger war mongerer, France or England? A day does not go by that one reads about either one of these countries being at war with each other or with some other one. What a shame!

  112. John Rodriguez says:

    TODAY IN HISTORY: 1623 – the plundering of North America by the English begins. The Spaniards and Portuguese had already been doing it for a century.

  113. John Rodriguez says:

    is it just my computer that has not an update to the winner's list since the week of 5/25 – 5/31? if not, may we have an overdue update?

  114. John Jones says:

    September 29, 1862:
    Genl. William "Bull" Nelson gets into an altercation with fellow Union Genl. Jefferson C. Davis at the Galt House in Louisville, KY.
    Davis returns later with a gun and shoots and kills Nelson.

  115. Robert T. says:

    Is Dilbert a question answering bot on this blog??

  116. Jack Rogers says:

    Gnl. Jubal A Early born this day in 1816

  117. Juan M Rodriguez says:

    HAPPY VETERANS DAY to all my fellow veterans.

  118. Pat F. says:

    For quite a few years I played the Daily Quiz: I would read the question and choose an answer. Then, I would hit the reveal button and see the answer.

    Now, I have no way to choose an answer. There is no button next to the choices!!!! All I can do is reveal the answer.
    What happened? How can I win if I can't take choose an answer?

    Is this the way it is with everyone????????

  119. James A. says:

    I have the same problem with the quiz. It will not let me select an answer…just reveal it.
    What is the point?

  120. John says:

    Does anyone know of a good movie about the battle of New Orleans, besides the Buccaneer?

  121. John says:

    On this date in 1836 the siege of the Alamo began.

  122. Darryl MacDonald says:

    I have not visited here in about 3 months. I am disappointed to not see anyone post their comments since Feb.23, 2010. I enjoyed reading them.

  123. Cameron says:

    don't stay away 3 months, Darryl.

  124. Brenda Cushman says:

    I would love to win a subscription.

  125. Bonnie N. says:

    I do so enjoy these daily quizzes…..and occasionally I even manage to get a correct answer. (Choose answer in your head before hitting the reveal button. You're really the only one who cares whether you get it right or not, you know.)

  126. Cosmo Kramer says:

    one clause in the surrender terms at Appomattox in 1865 baffled some people: every Confederate cavalryman was entitled to take his horse home with him. This provision, insisted on by General Lee, was accepted by General Grant when he was told that once they returned to civilian life, former soldiers wouldn't be able to plant spring crops without their war horses.

  127. U.S.Grant says:

    There were 6 million cases of disease in the Federal armies, which meant that, on an averarge, every man was sick at least twice.
    HAPPY FLAG DAY!

  128. Jean Emmanuel says:

    HAPPY ST. JEAN BAPTISTE DAY TO ALL IN QUEBEC!

  129. Darryl MacDonald, Canada says:

    Happy Birthday, Canada.
    Canada will be 143 years old as a country on July 1, 2010

  130. Bastian S. says:

    hearty congratulations to Deutschland for winning 3rd place in the FIFA World Cup! they were more gracious at winning 3rd place that the nasty Dutch were at winning 2nd place. Figures!
    As for Spain, they did not deserve 1st place – Deutschland outscored them 16 to 8 in the games that they played. Translation= Germany should have been the World Champion!!!

  131. snellville snail says:

    RECOMMENDATION to WebMaster this blog:
    Please….Post current comments at top.
    Therefore, most recent comments appear first, followed by previous comments chronologically top to bottom.
    More participation might result if users do not have to page down to absolute bottom to see most recent comment. This would seem to be a minor program language revision. Thank You.

  132. John R. says:

    Who issued the warning: "get down you fool or you'll be killed!" and to whom was it issued?

  133. snellville snail says:

    Warning was issued, yelled at, President Lincoln at the battle for Fort Stevens attacked by Confederate General Jubal Early's command outside Washinton, D.C. in July 1864. Union officer warning Lincoln was possibly Horatio Wright.

  134. Paul Hilliard says:

    the person issuing the warning was future Supreme Cour Justice Capt. Oliver Wendell

  135. Paul Hilliard says:

    HOLMES!

  136. Jim Longstreet says:

    There's a man in the White House with blood on his mouth!
    If there's knaves in the North, there are braves in the South!
    We are three thousand horses, and not one afraid;
    We are three thousand sabres, and not one a dull blade.

    lyrics from "Riding a Raid"

  137. Juan M Rodriguez says:

    HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY, MEXICO!!!

    200 YEARS!!!

    VIVA MEXICO!!!

    the celebration continues in November.

  138. Bobby Lee says:

    The chance of surviving a wound in Civil War days was 7 to 1.

  139. Uncle Billy says:

    Who told his quartermaster, "if you don't have my army supplied, and keep it supplied, we'll eat your mules up, sir."?

  140. Uncle Billy says:

    I DID!!!
    Wm. T. Sherman

  141. Y. Yevtushenko says:

    September 29 & 30: 69th aniversary of BABI YAR.
    Nazis, with the assistance of Ukrainian collaborators murdered 33,771 Jews.
    In the months that followed more that 100,000 people, mostly civilians,
    Jews, Roma and Soviets were seized and taken to Babi Yar where they were shot.

    Over Babi Yar there are no monuments.
    The steep precipice is like a crude gravestone.
    I am terrified.
    I am as old today
    As all Jewish people.

  142. Juan M Rodriguez says:

    More shells were discharged in the single Battle of Gettysburg than were employed in all the battles that Napoleon ever fought.

  143. Cosmo Kramer says:

    Who said, " I am now considered such a monster, that I hesitate to darken with my shadow, the doors of those I love, lest I should bring upon them misfortune."?

  144. snellville snail says:

    ….Abraham Lincoln…..

  145. Cosmo Kramer says:

    sorry to disappoint you, snellville – the answer to my question is ROBERT E LEE. He expressed this appraisal of his image to a friend months after the surrender at Appomattox.
    Better luck next time.

  146. Cosmo Kramer says:

    Identify the author of the following quotation:
    You cannot qualify war in harsher terms than I will. War is cruelty and you cannot refine it; and those who brought war into our country deserve all the curses and maledictions a people can pour out.

  147. snellville snail says:

    ….William T. Sherman…..(not a surprise)……

  148. Cosmo Kramer says:

    congratulations, snellville. it seems that it's just you and me contributing to this blog.

  149. Cosmo Kramer says:

    Before Abraham Lincoln's inauguration as president on 4 March 1861,
    these 7 states seceded from the Union: S. Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Texas. After the Battle of Ft.
    Sumter in April 1861, 4 more states seceded. Name them.

  150. John says:

    Virginia Arkansas N Carolina Tennesee

  151. Cosmo Kramer says:

    Congratulations and thanks to John for correctly indentifying the last 4 states to secede. Now, here's the next question: Who said, "The whole army is burning with an insatiable desire to wreak violence upon South Carolina. I almost tremble for her fate."?

  152. Dick Tracy says:

    Cosmo: the answer is Gnl. W. T. Sherman. He made this observation as he prepared to lead his victorious army into the Palmetto State following his famous March to the Sea.

  153. snellville snail says:

    …what has happened to this page?
    …too difficult to find recent postings.
    …was 'Sherman' answer correct?
    Happy Holiday to all!

  154. Juan M Rodriguez says:

    love the new format on Comments part of Daily Quiz

  155. Juan M Rodriguez says:

    however, I think the clock has not been moved back. I submitted my comment at 1:50 pm and on this page it appears as 3:50 pm. I would think that it would appear as 2:50 pm.

  156. Petrina Ponniah says:

    Kudos to HistoryNet for their Daily Quiz. It opens our minds to the endless possibilities of learning History lifelong. Keep up the good work!

  157. gregory morrow says:

    The daily quiz for 12/16/2010 I rember a artical that ran in science section Time Magazine back in late 1960's or early 1970's, the a person used members from the Greek army using poshed shields to recreated Anthemius event in 217 BC. And this experment did work back then.

  158. Juan M Rodriguez says:

    INTERESTING FACT!

    On Easter morning, 16 APR 1865, Col. Oscar LaGrange led Union troops on an attack of the earthen fort at West Point, GA. Named after the Confederate general commanding the fort, Fort Tyler sustained a day-long assault before succumbing to the Union forces. Nineteen Confederates and seven Union soldiers lost their lives that day, never aware that Gnl. Robt. E. Lee had surrendered to Gnl. U. S. Grant seven days before and two days after Pres. Lincoln's assassination.

  159. snellville snail says:

    Fort Tyler is a truly great venue to visit. Northeast Georgia Civil War Round Table recommends Columbus, GA & West Point , GA tour.

  160. Darryl MacDonald, Canada says:

    In 21 days, CSS Arkansas was in five battles with Union ships. She badly damaged many of her opponents and established a fearsome reputation during her short career.

    Dear HistoryNet,

    Wonderful web site. However, this feature lacks many user friendly attirbutes. If structure could be revised to allow for easier and quicker submission and response, this forum might be used more often. Thanx.

  162. Juan M Rodriguez says:

    Only a couple of days into the current poll question and it is quite evident that the majority of respondents so far are red-necked tea partiers who don't believe in compromise.
    The current question was posted BEFORE a compromise was reached in order to avoid a govenment shut-down, thank goodness those idiotic and moronic "politicians" in Washington decided to display a little bit of common sense in reaching a very short term accord.
    If any of those people truly have the interests of their constituents at heart, they would not engage in some much acrimonius partisanship.
    I voted for compromise, even on the most critical issues because I believe in fairness – something republicans and those vile tea partiers DO NOT BELIEVE IN!!!

  163. Juan M Rodriguez says:

    a/o 15APR2011, the trend continues with the current poll question. God help us if the reds and tp's take over the US government. btw, by reds I don't mean the commies. doesn't take much to figure it out.

  164. CMILLER says:

    Testing this post.

  165. Snellville Snail says:

    question to CMILLER…was test successful?

  166. Rudy says:

    The daily quiz tells me how much I do not know of history events.

  167. Dave says:

    Thanks for the quick response to my e-mail. Thanks for an awesome Quiz. And lastly thanks for the back issues!!

  168. Sheila Brubaker says:

    I have tried twice in the past 6 mo nths and to no avail. I contacted you about the magazine subcription I won back in January of this year and you are not responding. Did you ever mail out the magazine tha I requested. I have still not received anything. Thanks

  169. Roscoe Bedaw says:

    Hey, I'm impressed by your site and was wondering if you're ever looking for guest authors or bloggers. I've written a few articles on the subject before and would be keen to contribute (free of course). Please let me know, thanks.

  170. Rudy G says:

    Daily Quiz is a great history teacher. There are so many questions of events, sociology, riff-raff, bourgeoisie, proletariat, wars and incidents. How can one began to know all occurrences?

  171. The quiz is fun. I love history and this site gives sharpens my knowledge on history.

  172. Juan M Rodriguez says:

    what's with the question marks in the names of those two French "noblemen" that were killed in the battle mentioned in today's
    quiz?
    also, I would like to know why comments from 3 1/2 years ago still appear on this blog. are they ever going to be deleted?

  173. Juan M Rodriguez says:

    here it is, 7:22 PM, CST, 12/23/11 and already the quiz, picture and today in history are posted for the 24th. Is this not going to be corrected?

  174. John says:

    Am I right in assuming that you no longer give away subscriptions when we answer the quiz?

  175. John says:

    I see the reader's poll was left on long enough for battle of britain to tie Roark's Drift. As soon as BOB takes the lead, a new poll will be started.

  176. A. L. LaBar says:

    I found this site a nice surprise, even as I did so accidently. I look forward to more times of learning and enjoyment in the future.
