Colonial Women Quiz Winner

This was a close contest between the two contestants--although neither topped the 14 correct mark. I have that Chelsea wins by 1 (with 12 points). However, feel free to check your answers against the correct ones and calculate your score. Note that "correct" is defined as what was stated in the following 3 books.

I was busy and didn't take the test until today...and I promise I did not peak. Chelsea still wins, but it was a fun quiz.
