The very last answer took me forever to get. Shoshone, Snohomish, Seneca, Spokane, Shawnee, and Southern Paiute all came to mind before the right one.

I'm surprised that Seminole were ahead of Shawnee.

How come Clinton was impeached? He served his full terms.

Impeachment means he was charged with a crime. It is not synonymous with being removed from office. No POTUS has ever been removed from office due to impeachment (Nixon resigned before he probably would've been).

Yup. There doesn't even have to be any actual evidence or result for an impeachment. It just means that other politicians make an accusation and have enough votes to officially bring the accusation. Depending on if it's the US President or a state official, you might only need a simple majority to bring the charges. Politicians don't usually do it, because they themselves are also politicians, and most have probably done something or made someone else mad enough in their own past, or will do so in the future, and they don't want the experience themselves.

JFK was accused for having an affair with Monroe. Nothing was actually proven but JFK did cheat on his wife at sometime.

Should Mark Twain be one Mark Twain's most famous characters as well? Just a random thought.

Fun fact, they are restoring the Monitor at the Mariner's Museum near my house, you can even walk around in a replica of the ship. Check it out if you are in Hampton Roads its a cool museum.

It feels wrong to put Thurgood Marshall on the same list as Clarence Thomas.

If you take Bell for AT&T (as I agree you should), shouldn't you also take Esso for Standard Oil? Also, cut us some slack on spelling for Sacagawea. Please.

+1 on Esso working. That's all I could think of. Doh!

I thought Esso was the Canadian, not American version. And, don't they both fall under the umbrella of Shell Nederland?

"Sioux" is not a tribe. It is an anglicised referent to a group of similarly cultured tribes, the Lakota, the Dakota and the Nakota. So either the clue should reference ethnic or cultural groups, or use the next biggest actual tribe, which is probably the Shoshone based on the fact that they are the majority population of Wind River reservation, the 5th most populous reservation in the US. I worked on this reservation for the summer in 2000. Simultaneously the most beautiful and terrible place I've ever been. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sioux | https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_largest_Indian_reservations_in_the_United_States | https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wind_River_Indian_Reservation

Could you add some more spellings for Sacagawea? Pretty please? It's a hard one to get right.

You've obviously seen the correct spelling by now. Is it still too hard to get it even after you've seen the correct spelling?
