We’re going to start periodically running quizzes, and as an experiment put together a little quiz on Cobb County history, starting with the early years.
The questions and answers were taken from two sources:
The First Hundred Years: A Short History of Cobb County in Georgia by Sarah Blackwell Gober Temple (first published in 1935)
and the New Georgia Encyclopedia’s entry on Cobb County.
If you discover any errors of fact in the quiz, or have any technical problems taking the quiz, please let us know in the comment section below the quiz. We plan on making quizzes a regular feature, and want to get it right.
Since remembering dates is one of the most horrifying things about taking history quizzes, we’ve made it a point to make the years far enough apart that it would be possible to get the answer correct if you know the general time frame within ten years or so when we do ask about dates.
Take the quiz!
This is the first in a series of quizzes we’ll be publishing. It covers the first ten years of the county’s existence. Please leave comments on the bottom of this page with any suggestions, complaints, praise, or corrections.
