I reckon 39% isn't bad for a Brit who's never travelled west of the Hudson.

The Sabine River separates Texas from Louisiana and before the Republic of Texas was established it separated Mexican territory from US area. It runs through a very large reservoir, Toldeo Bend, that is a hot spot for bass fishing. The Sabine empties into the Glf of Mexico. Consider adding it.

Fantastic quiz, but I wish the names would be tied to the rivers after the conclusion so that one could click a river and find out its name. Also: I think this quiz is very tied to where you're from. I got the Wabash and the Chattahoochee because I'm from Indiana and spent childhood summers in Columbus, GA.

Why is there a picture of Portland Head Light for rivers? It's a mile or 2 below the mouth of the Presumpscott "River" which is a ditch that widens out into the harbor.
