This Post-Independence Day Federal Holiday

BY DR. DAVID E. MARCINKO MBA

INVITATION: https://medicalexecutivepost.com/dr-david-marcinkos-

Good Monday Morning and Happy July 5th.

I recently learned from Bloomberg editor David Shipley that the American citizenship test wasn’t standardized until the 1950s, and before that aspiring citizens were quizzed on their understanding of American history by a judge. It was … pretty hard.

Here are several questions you might’ve been asked to become an American citizen in 1944. How would you do? Answers at the bottom of this post.

  • Which of the following states seceded during the Civil War? Florida, Maryland, Delaware, Kentucky*
  • Which of these cities has not been a capital of the US? NYC, Boston, Princeton, Philadelphia
  • Where must all bills intended to raise revenue originate? Popular referendum, the House, the Senate, the president
  • Which was not one of the original 13 colonies? South Carolina, Massachusetts, Georgia, Maine.

HAVE A GREAT MONDAY OFF

And, thank you if working today.

Citizenship test: 1) Florida seceded 2) Boston wasn’t a capital 3) Bills to raise revenue must originate in the House 4) Maine wasn’t an original colony

CELEBRATE

    Good morning. So it’s technically July 5th but it’s also technically July 4th, in the sense that the markets are closed for the federal holiday and many of you are enjoying the third day of what we hope has been an epic weekend so far.
