No United States president has ever been attacked by piranha or expressed a wish to be left in the Amazon to die. Theodore Roosevelt visited Brazil in 1913 and apparently returned with tales of these ferocious fishes and yet another presidential myth was born. http://www.50megs.com/piranha/mythpira.html

This quiz concerns the period in Brazil's history from September 7th 1822 (date of the independence) to November 15th 1889 (birth of the "Old Republic"). I am aware this is not a topic widely studied outside Brazil, so I've kept it simple.
