There were fifty five members of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, so who was the person who signed and was not at the convention?

I only got 10 out of fourteen, but most of that is due to lack of memory. I highly recommend reading ” Decision in Philadelphia: The Constitutional Convention of 1787″ By The Colliers but credited to Christopher Collier. Excellent book with reference material sited. It is more popular in SC than other places because of the credits given to Charles Pinkney and his role in the final outcome.

13 of the 14. Was not sure if Washington signed when asked about the number of future presidents who had signed. Knew Thomas Jefferson and John Adam had signed. Was 50/50 on Washington and was wrong.

Washington was not in Philly to sign, because he was leading the army against the British. Think he was in New England / New York area in 1776

14/14 – former H S Amer Govt instructor – Germantown H S – Southwind H S – Memphis TN/Shelby County – we studied the Dec of Independence hard & firm – how many of my students would remember their lessons is a ???? for the ages. We also went after the Constitution with a vengeance!! Amer Gov’t is a semester course N TN so we hit the highlights & concepts!! No one passed the course if they did now know, verbatim, the 5 Concepts of Democracy & the 6 Principles of the Constitution!!! We approached both writings from a strict Judeo-Christian heritage viewpoint, the way it should take place.

13 out of 14 mistake on # of future presidents to sign. We need to have these quizzes back in school. Many if not most young people wouldn’t know the answers. I’m thankful for homeschooling today and teaching Constitutional Law.

10 of14, once again. Should have been 12 of 14, but changed my mind twice and paid the penalty. Would have guessed all 3 July dates before considering August, though.

12 out of 14. I shudder to think how the current crop of High School grads might do. I hope I’m largely wrong. .

Through the tireless research of an older brother, it was recently discovered my siblings and I are direct descendant of John Adams. This has brought the reality of the efforts and sacrifice of our founding fathers (and patriots) into a much more personal and meaningful realm for me. As a result, I have done alot of research and would have never gotten half of these questions right beforehand. I am so grateful. PS: there are millions of descendants of our founding fathers in this nation. I’m certain many (like me) have no idea of their amazing lineage.

Noticed several folks saying they didn’t do too bad considering they graduating high school xx number of years ago. Folks, IF you gave this quiz to a present day high school graduate, they probably would not get 3 correct. We no longer teach history, we no longer teach government, we no longer teach civics. The only thing today’s kids learn about Jefferson is that he owned slaves. They learn that Franklin MAY have been a pervert. Hell, they cannot even tell you from whom we claimed “independence”.

Missed three – had to guess on 5, but guessed wrong on 2, so it could have been worse. I love these things. I learn something every time I take one.

Some of the questions are so obscure only a History Major, like myself, would have a chance at getting them. Others……..(Henry VIII? Really?)

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
