Why I know Tallahassee don't ask, I've learned some of the harder ones in states with big cities such as Albany from looking at a map and wondering why it wasn't New York City :P

A lot of people get the capital of South Carolina confused. They think of Charleston, which is the capital of West Virginia.

You are horrible at grammar. P.S. It's: "You are horrible at spelling. P.S. It's capitals with and 'a'." Remember full stops and capital letters or pedants like me will get annoyed.

I don't really understand why the states' largest cities aren't usually the capital of the states. e.g. when you say Florida, I immediately typed Miami (wrong) and then New York, I was going for NYC until I suddenly remembered that it is Albany And this pattern continued for most other states that I have attempted Although I did not attempted more than 15 states PS from Hong Kong

The states in question have been around longer than their biggest cities were big. Obviously both Miami and Orlando are far younger than the state and colony of Florida. Tallahassee however probably goes back to the 18th Century.

In that case, the capital of Florida should be St. Augustine.

Many tried to pick a central location rather than the largest city to make it easier for those legislators who had to ride horseback in the old days.

The reason tallahassee is the capital is because St. Augustine wanted to be the capital and Pensacola wanted to be the capital and they could not decide so they chose Tallahassee because it was in the middle of both cities. Tallahassee is under rated but it is a great city and people should check it out.

This quiz has taken me from knowing 4 capitals in my first attempt to now knowing all 50. I now want to take it to the next level and have a randomised map where you have to name the state and its capital in two text boxes. Is that even possible?

Whilst some of these make sense (Boston for Massachusetts, Denver for Colorado) some make so little sense - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania has barely a third of one per cent of Pennsylvania's population. Austin or Sacramento may not be the largest cities in their respective states, but they are of respectable size. Some of these places are seemingly just random, minor towns.

Do capitals have to make sense?

Many of them are in central locations (Harrisburg and Austin, for instance). And the capitals are not necessarily permanent. In Texas, it used to be Houston (Googled it). And learned in elementary school that Detroit was Michigan's capital before 1847, when it moved to (more) centrally located Lansing.

Why is 'Salt Lake' accepted for Utah, but the 'City' must always be added for Missouri, Nevada, Oklahoma, and others? Personally, I'd prefer having to type it in, just because the others are already like it, and most shortcuts that I've tried don't work for any of the other capitals.
