Terri from my4kids has tagged me for a birthday meme....Actually I find this quite interesting as alot of it is American history and I love history. Even though I'm Canadian, I took American geography and history for several years in school. I loved American Social Studies (which we did because it was a Christian School with curriculum from Texas)then when they wrote the Canadian version I hated it... it was so boring compared to your history! We memorized all the dates for all these American battles and also who the General was.... I loved it! Anyway... I'll get on with the meme..
