Thanksgiving is almost here, and in celebration of the national holiday I thought I would put together a little twenty questions quiz for those of you who are trivia buffs. I'll use questions from American History and if I can find some actual thanksgiving questions I'll include them but you never know what kind of strange trivia I may come up with.

I think I will dedicate this thanksgiving American history trivia quiz to the pilgrims who originally came over to the colonies to escape religious persecution and began building this great country of ours.

You can print this out, or copy it into your word processor and delete the answers to use it for a quiz. Cut and paste away!
