by Artimis Charvet

WHERE IN THE USA IS CARMEN SANDIEGO? Today she's joining you on a trip around the entire country! While it's easy to know that there are 50 states in the United States, do you know all of them? Take this quiz, and we'll guess your education level from how many you know!

The United States has a long, long history, and it begins in 1776. This started when the original 13 colonies decided to declare independence from Great Britain, to become their own country. At the culmination of the American Revolutionary War in 1783, the United States was born. With it came the Constitution and the first few states that ratified it. What began as Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey in 1787 would grow to 50 states, including the addition of Alaska and Hawaii in 1959. What about all the states in between? Do you know them? How well?

While you might know that Utah's capital is Salt Lake City, do you know what religion is associated with the state? As one of the original 13 colonies, you might know that Connecticut is one of the first states, but do you know which year they ratified the Constitution? Could you name the capitals of Montana or Alaska? Let's hope so!

There's a lot of history and knowledge that comes with the 50 states! Test your knowledge and we'll take a guess at your education level! Have you had some college experience or should we call you Dr.?

Get ready for the pomp and circumstance!
