For a country that's only been around for less than 250 years, the United States sure has left an impact on the world thus far, as it's gone from 13 colonies to a world power. Do you know everything about the history of this unique and powerful country? Could you pass a quiz with easy, medium and hard U.S. history questions? Here's your chance to find out!

If you know all of the ins and outs of U.S. history, take this quiz and put your knowledge to the test. That's if you're up for the challenge. After all, not everyone can answer these U.S. history questions.
