It was like thirteen separate countries, each with there own government and laws, called colonies that after a bunch of political battles elected to band together to fight the British. In my opinion, a bad start for this country, after they banded together, each still maintained their own governments and laws, but became what they called states. Today we have fifty of them, again each with their own government and a different set of laws. Most are in competition with each other for major industries and a lot of tax dollars are collected to make each state the most attractive one. States get involved with such stuff like football and baseball stadiums at tax payers expense. Suppose to be good for the state. Punishment for a crime varies considerably from state to state, either can get a TV set for being naughty or electrocuted. Family life like marriage, divorce, etc., varies considerably from state to state. Still not one country, but 50 different states.

While we are all paying the same amount of money for federal fuel tax, the guy with the most power in the senate manages to bring a hunk of that money back to his state, like Kennedy building an underground freeway in Boston. We are lucky to get 50 cents of that money back to fill a pot hole. Not exactly equal. Regan sure sent a ton of money to California for Star Wars, when Bush came in, hundreds of thousands of engineers were laid off. Goes on and on.

Memorizing the 13 colonies was challenging for my wife, really doubt in a verbal test, an IO, not really experienced as a teacher would even ask that question as you can rattle off all 13 colonies verbally and difficult to remember if you said the same colony twice. But we spent more time on that answer than the other 99 combined. The majority of her six questions were based on our state, names of our governor, senators, and representatives. So memorizing the 13 colonies was essentially a waste of our time.

Here is a trick - you don't need to memorize all 13 colonies for the test - the question is to name 3 of the original 13 colonies - much easier to remember.

“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”

The old test asked you to name all 13. It's easier if you break them into three groups.

Five ladies: Georgia, Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, and South Carolina

Five long names: Connecticut, Massachusetts, Pensylvania, Rhode Island, Delaware

Three "new" ones: New York, New Jersey, and New Hampshire

The new test only asks you to name three, so you can pick whatever three you want to name.

Most US Citizens can't name all 13 (or maybe will accidentally add Vermont, Maine, or West Virginia in there). But everybody should know that they're basically along the east coast, where the British colonization began. OK, Pennsylvania doesn't quite touch the ocean, but the others do. If you can simply name three east coast states, you'll probably be able to answer this one well enough to pass the test. You improve your odds if you remember that Maine and Florida were not among the original 13.
