The Battle of Hastings took place nearest to a town called Battle. Hastings is around 7 miles away.

So? It's about the most important military event of the year... It was the "Battle of Hastings", or the "Battle of ... Battle"?

Why do you think they called it Battle? Battle didn't exist in 1066.

this was a great quiz. Thanks. There were 4 I had no clue, and then there was the embarrassing incident of trying to put both Franklin and Roosevelt for FDR, before realising my mistake..oops

OK so since there was just a short line, I should've tried just hastings. But I kept trying Battle of Hastings and it wouldn't take it. A little leeway, please?

But it didn't say "BATTLE of Waterloo", so that should have been your key to how the answer had to be phrased. In analogies more than any other type of quiz, precision and pickiness is vital.

Midway and Stalingrad? How?

Both were major turning point battles of the war. After the Japanese navy lost at Midway, it was basically over for them in the Pacific. Ditto for the Germans on the eastern front after they failed to take Stalingrad.

I think that somehow how I got turned around. Kept typing "Cognito Ergo Sum", assuming that was the phrase that you were looking for; I could have sworn that "Veni, Vidi, Vici" was given.

Perhaps, but he's MUCH more commonly known as "Attila the Hun." Doing a Google search for "Attila, the Scourge of God" gets me about 45,300 hits, while "Attila the Hun" gets me about 1,060,000.

Yeah, Delaware was first and Hawaii was last, so we in the US tend to remember their place in line. Many people would probably be able to peg Alaska at 49 as well, since it and Hawaii both came in at about the same time, within living memory, but I doubt most US citizens could offhand tell you what state was, say, 34th.

(It was Kansas, for the record.)

Other than the ones you said I wouldn't know any of the others without looking them up, except I know my own state of Missouri was #24 and Maine was #23 due to the Missouri Compromise which we studied in state history classes. I could do better giving the years they were admitted.
