Result
Well...at least you got a couple of the easy ones to remember right. Not everyone can remember the original thirteen colonies, and that's okay. Don't beat yourself up too much - but it is a small number, so it might be worth memorizing the ones you don't know!

Well, you missed a few of the tougher ones, but ultimately you showed that you know your stuff when it comes to the original thirteen United States colonies. Lots of people could name a couple, but naming them all is difficult. You're over halfway there though!

You must be a historian, or at least have some type of degree in history, because while a lot of people might be able to remember a few of the colonies, very few could name THIS many! Great work!
