    Get off the computer and do your homework.

    Quit playing around at school and you'd know the answers.

    But, just to let you know this stuff can be interesting, in question 16, it mentions John Sutter. Did you know that he owned the mill where the gold was found that started the California gold rush in 1849? The people working some construction at his mill were Mormons. They had just completed the longest march in US Army history (the record stands even today) to defend the US from Mexico. The Mormon Battalion (as they were known) were working at Sutters mill to get money to return to Salt Lake or the camps at Winter Quarters (near Omaha, NE). Sutter only got his mill finished because the Mormons had integrity enough to stay and finish the job they were hired to do while all the other workers left to find gold. Interesting, isn't it?
