Very original! I really like it and would like more again if there was a Frenchh version. No, more seriously, it's an excellent work! I hope it will become featured (and I nominate, of course).

Very cool idea and quiz, but can you add more type-ins?

(secession for revolutionary war, market crash or Wall Street as the 1929 event, ...)

Hey! Thank you for this comment!

Sure I can add type-ins if they're accurate enough.

Concerning the 1929 event, I've allowed "Wall Street crash" and "Stock Market Crash".
