About This Quiz

"...From sea to shining sea!" The United States spans from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic and reaches from Mexico to Canada. The third biggest country, the United States is made up of 50 states. Each state has its own character, from its landmarks to its sports teams. Given just three images, can you identify the state?

The history of the United States began centuries ago. What was once Native American soil became the newly colonized British land. It wasn't until around the late 1700s that the settlers felt they needed to break free from England. "No taxation without representation," they would yell, and this cry would soon turn to one of independence. They declared this independence on July 4, 1776, and with the victory of the American Revolutionary War, the United States began forming. This began with the "First State," Delaware, and would continue with the rest of the 13 original colonies. Soon, westward expansion would create more states. The country continued to grow until the 48 continental states were set. It wasn't until 1959 that the United States finished its growth, with the final additions of Hawaii and Alaska. 

All 50 states have their own character. While New York is symbolized by the Statue of Liberty, the Space Needle is the beacon of Seattle. There are tons of landmarks and characteristics that set the states apart from their counterparts. Can you identify the states from three images representing them? Let's find out!
