That is a Cherry Blossom tree, not a cherry tree.

There is no such thing as a cherry blossom tree. The blossoms are the flowers of the cherry tree. In this case, the Japanese Cherry tree.

Right. It is a cherry tree. It's just that the only time anybody ever hears about them is when they are blossoming... then people come in to the see the "cherry blossoms"

Probably not, since those are ornamental cherries. :)

LOL......I'm pretty sure all cherry trees have blossoms. This is actually a "flowering cherry tree".

That part of Virginia used to be part of Washington D.C. The District of Columbia was originally a 10 by 10 mile square, consisting of land donated by Maryland and Virginia. Virginia voted to take back the land they donated in 1846. Without retrocession, the Pentagon would be in Washington D.C.

Most of Old Town Alexandria was also in that square.

Sure, and West Virginia used to be part of Virginia, but we wouldn't have Charleston on a quiz of "Cities in Virginia."

It says "things associated with the city of Washington D.C."
City limits usually don't coincide with official borders, especially in US

The Tomb doesn't have an official name, but its guards and those associated with it almost exclusively refer to it as the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier (not pluralised).

I was stationed at Ft. Myer, which is next to Arlington Cemetery and where the 3rd Infantry (Old Guard) lives. They are the guys who guard the tomb, as well as do other duties like presidential funeral processions. However, I was in F Troop next door, not the Old Guard.

I actually think the level is quite fitting. Some easy ones, some I never heard of (the entire third row), and some I didn't know had anything to do with Washington - like cherry trees. As a European I actually learned something new

Over 3000 cherry trees were gifted from Japan to the United States in 1912. Washington and Tokyo have a similar climate and they've flourished ever since on the spot chosen for them along the Potomac.

It would be better if it forced you to enter the answer for a selected picture to keep from guessing. It feel it is too easy as well.

it asked for the name of the speech, so march on Washington or civil rights wouldn't fit this.

I kept putting Nameless Soldier and wondered why it wasn't working. Now I know.
