Reconstruction Quizzes & Trivia

As usual, this quiz is Pass/Fail. To pass, you must receive a score of 80%. If you do not pass on your first attempt, please review the correct answers and the description of why they are the correct answers, and then try the quiz as many times as it takes you to pass. You can use the internet or your binder. You were supposed to receive the "Reconstruction Overview" packets back from the sub on Friday. You may want to wait to take the quiz until you have that packet back from me on Monday.
