Suffrage And Imperialism Practice Quiz

I've changed the quiz rules! You do not need to take this quiz for credit. Instead, this is a practice quiz, allowing you to study for in-class closed note quizzes. Take this quiz as many or as few times as you'd like. If you get a 100% on this quiz without using your notes, you will probably do pretty well on the quiz in class. Our imperialism/suffrage quiz will take place on Monday, January 28th. You will not be allowed to use your notes.
