Nice quiz, just a slight correction: Canada should be on here also. Your source doesn’t include it because it wasn’t a colony, but the Louisiana Purchase gave land to the US that was given to Britain in the Treaty of 1818. From the treaty’s Wikipedia page: “the United States' only permanent significant cession of North American territory to a foreign power” The years would be from 1803-1818.

Thanks for reminding me--I completely forgot about that! The corrected version is out for review now.
