Thomas Jefferson took 17 days to write the Declaration of Independence, and the Second Continental Congress spent two days making some changes to the document.

your quiz has 2 days

Thank you for writing. There is some controversy over this issue. There was a committee of five, originally, given the task of writing a document proposing independence. They were given a deadline, and that gave them 17 days to come up with the document. John Adams was the head of the committee, but he gave the task of writing to Jefferson, who did not want it because he was a member of Congress and too busy. There is no real history of what happened, but most historians believe he wrote the draft rather quickly before Congress convened. They then spent two days editing the draft. And that’s where the two days came from.

7/10. Who knew. The hot dog questions got me.

I had the same problem, no quiz showing up on my page. I turned off an “ad blocker” in my web browser, refreshed the page and the quiz now shows up.

Howdy;

Y’all are missing a link for the 4th quiz. Big empty space below where it says to “click below …” becomes a circular path to frustration.

Hi Henry,
The quiz is working on my tablet. Sorry you can’t access it. I’ll see if I can find out what the problem is.
