When Missouri was admitted to the Union as a slave state, what state was admitted as a free state? President James Buchanan and one member of his cabinet were considered “doughfaces.” What does this term mean? The Battle of Honey Springs was unusual in that it did not take place in either a state or an organized territory. Where did it happen? Pit your knowledge of the War Between the States against your friends’ and family’s claims to expertise with A Civil War Round Table Quiz Book. The book features 117 different quizzes, the subjects ranging from the infamous Dred Scott case to the final surrender at Appomattox Court House. Each quiz has a theme, and the themes have been selected to cover myriad subjects and to lead readers into the lesser-known aspects of the war that they might not otherwise explore. The Hartford (Connecticut) Civil War Round Table even used these quizzes as a key component of their meetings. Civil War experts and general history fans alike will enjoy challenging their friends and rivals with the fun and interesting trivia found in A Civil War Round Table Quiz Book. The extensive knowledge that readers will learn from this book will amaze and befuddle even the most stalwart Civil War aficionado.
