Here is a sneak peek at the 10-point bonus question for this month’s Pop Quiz trivia.
Abraham Lincoln, with his wife Mary by his side, would be remembered for being elected the sixteenth president of the United States and for leading the country through the Civil War. The Lincolns were born in the same state. But Abraham was born to a poor family and Mary into relative wealth, so their paths did not cross until they left their home state.
Where were both Abraham Lincoln and Mary Todd Lincoln born?
B. Washington, DC
