An AP US History test from 1964

Deep in my attic, in an old file folder, I discovered an AP US History test that I took back in October of 1964:

I wonder how many of those questions I could answer correctly today, especially within a 50-minute time limit. You may wonder why it says “United States History” at the top, instead of “Advanced Placement United States History” or the like.

The answer to the first question is…well…maybe 10? or at most 12? (Is it OK to answer a question with a question?)

The answer to the second is that we were all required to take AP US History, so they didn’t have to call the course anything but “United States History.”
