    Great post (and an awful lot of work). If this page (plus dedication on my part, of course) doesn’t stop my getting tripped up on this subject, nothing will. :)

    I know it isn’t about state capitals but, incidentally, the FJ on that 1/30/87 game mentioned above also just tripped me up. Argh!

      Thanks Cece. When I saw that FJ on that game, I was so tired, I was like well, there’s 3 in A and there has to be another one so 4. LOL!

      btw, another thing they do with this category is the old state capitals. I’ll have to check into that sometime.

        Some might argue that Jackson was not, as it was named for him before he was POTUS.

        • Cece says:

          Good point. IIRC, the honor was due to Jackson being a big shot in the Battle of New Orleans, right?

          Btw, ain’t nobody gonna replace him on the $20 bill. I haven’t heard anything on the subject since VJ’s article about a year ago.

          Thanks to you both for bringing that up, esp the $20 bill debate. It led me to this interesting article on Woodrow Wilson and Andrew Jackson and mixed legacies

          An interesting article indeed. It doesn’t offer any easy conclusion (not to me, anyway). Complicated men in complicated times.
