Alternate Reality: What If The UK Won The American Revolution?

United KingdomCan you imagine what life would be like if Britain had actually won the American Revolution?  They came close to it, as it was, but what would have been the outcome of the world if Britain actually defeated the Colonists and regained control over them?  This type of scenario is only speculative, obviously, but things might have been quite a bit different for Americans today had this outcome been different.  Here are five possible outcomes if history had changed.

How Well Do You Know The United States?

The Statehood Quiz: Georgia

The State of GeorgiaIt’s been awhile since I did a statehood quiz.  You can find all of them, so far, on myFiveBest.com.  This one is for the southern state of Georgia.  It’s made up of five questions about the state.  Georgia, as you may know, is the home of the Atlanta Braves, the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons, and NBA’s Atlanta Hawks.  It was the fourth state to announce it’s part in the United States, which it did on January 2, 1788.  Georgia was considered a sovereign state of the Articles of Confederation (not to be confused with the Confederate States that it would belong to during the 1860s).  It has a rich history and plenty of trivia behind it.
