The 4th of July is the time when we celebrate our nation -- a time to reflect on the freedoms which we believe are not granted by our government, but are self-evident rights for all humankind.

Before they become citizens they are required to take a citizenship test and score 80%. Could you pass this test if you took it today?
Our quiz is made up of 30 questions, of which 20 were once used on the actual citizenship test. We've added a few curveballs (10 additional questions), but a score of 24 out of 30 is considered a passing grade.

Whoever the unknown people the Draytons are working for have threatened to kill Hank if Ben divulges any information ... Written by Huggo
