A History Quiz

Here is a little quiz regarding an American president by the legendary Clyde N. Wilson, professor emeritus at the University of South Carolina, perhaps one of the last conservative historians to hold a professorship at a major state university.

I had the privilege to meet Dr. Wilson while I served as a vicar just a few feet from the USC campus in the beautiful city of Columbia. I wish I could have found some way to audit one of his history classes.

I at first thought it was someone very recent, but then quickly realized that it's the man from Springfield, IL.

I knew the answer after the first few questions, but I grew up in Mississippi and am an historian.
