I tried this the other day, I guess a dollar just doesn't go as far as it used to.

I believe that's part of the "legend." It's possible, though reasonably unlikely, that he could throw a coin across the Rappahannock. But the Potomac is so much of a more "legendary" river in American history.

Up in Fauquier county it would be relatively easy to throw a coin across the Rappahannock.

2 things: 1) Johnny Appleseed was indeed a real person named John Chapman, so Chapman should work http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnny_Appleseed and 2) Please make George correct without the affixation of "St" I knew George slew the dragon, but when that didn't work, I just gave up on it.

You would be correct. George was not canonized at the time of the dragon slaying.

I thought for sure we'd see "invented the internet" on this quiz. You'll probably have to update the quiz in a few years to add "Built the Great American-Mexican Wall."

Somehow, I'm surprised that it wasn't Theodore Roosevelt who wrestled a bear. Or did all the other stuff, to be honest.
