Constitution of the USA Trivia Questions

1. Where was the first convention on women's rights in the United States held?

From Quiz
A Century of Suffrage

Answer: Seneca Falls, New York

The Seneca Falls convention took place in July 1848. The women's rights movement grew out of the abolition movement. The first convention was organized largely by female Quaker abolitionists. The key organizers at the Seneca Falls convention included Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Amelia Bloomer and Mary Ann McClintock. Abolition leader Frederick Douglass was an important early supporter of women's suffrage. The Women's Rights National Historic Park preserves the site of the first convention. It was established in 1980. The NHP is one of the key sites along the Votes for Women History Trail, which includes sites in Rochester and Waterloo, New York. There was a followup to the Seneca Falls convention in Worcester in 1850. The Ohio Women's Rights convention took place in Akron in May 1851; it is most notable for Sojourner Truth's "Ain't I A Woman" speech. The 1853 Women's Rights convention was held in Cleveland. The movement held annual conventions between 1850 and 1860.

2. The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution states "A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be ___". What is the missing word?

From Quiz The Right to Bear Arms

Answer: Infringed

This is the actual wording (and punctuation) of the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution. The precise interpretation of these words has become the subject of a polarizing debate in the United States.

3. Why are the branches listed in the order 'legislative, executive, judicial' in the U.S. Constitution?

From Quiz US Constitution and Basic Law

Answer: Certain founders wanted them in that order of power.

As stated in some of the the Federalist Papers, James Madison said the legislative branch was intended to be the most powerful branch. This was because they didn't want a strong leadership figure, like a king, and wanted a stronger legislative branch.

4. The Twelfth Amendment provides for the election of the vice president. Prior to its passage, how was the vice president elected?

From Quiz The Presidential Procedural Amendments

Answer: It went to the candidate who finished second in the vote for president

The Constitution originally called for the electors to each vote for two candidates and the one who finished second would become vice president. This worked fine for the first three elections but then as party politics started to take hold, all the electors who voted for Jefferson also voted for his running mate, resulting in a tie which had to be resolved by the House of Representatives. The Twelfth Amendment called for the electors to vote for the president and vice president separately.

5. The "Bill of Rights" were the first ten amendments to what document?

From Quiz The Bill of Rights

Answer: United States Constitution

There were concerns among the framers of the Constitution that there should explicit limits on the power of the federal government and the rights the rights of States and individuals. This seemed to be a proper course following the American Revolution where many of these guarantees had been abused in the colonies. The Amendments also had a basis in previous documents mentioned above and philosophical concepts. Fifteen of the fifty-five delegates refused to endorse the final document.

6. "Where, under our Declaration of Independence, does the Saxon man get his power to deprive all women and Negroes of their inalienable rights?"

From Quiz Who Said That? - American Suffragettes

Answer: Susan B. Anthony

Susan B. Anthony(1820-1906) asked this on May 12, 1859 at the Ninth National Women's Rights Convention in Mozart Hall, New York City. At the opening of the convention Caroline Wells Healey Dall(1822-1912) stated their resolutions including one to "secure to women all those rights and privileges and immunities which in equity belong to every citizen of a republic."

7. Which future president introduced legislation that became the Bill of Rights?

From Quiz History of the Bill of Rights

Answer: James Madison

James Madison, who served as 4th President of the United States from 1809 - 1817, introduced the legislation that became the Bill of Rights in 1789. The idea for a Bill of Rights had been discussed years earlier, and Madison drafted the legislation to address certain flaws or omissions (as many saw it) in the Constitution.

8. Getting into an argument about gun control is very easy to do. A Constitutional amendment was proposed to protect US people from the government infringing on their ability to bear arms. Which amendment was it?

From Quiz Amazing Amendments!

Answer: 2nd amendment

The amendment was proposed on September 25, 1789 and adopted on December 15, 1791. It is part of the Bill of Rights, which are the first 10 amendments to the Constitution. The full amendment is: "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed".

9. Who was the principal author of the US Bill of Rights?

From Quiz The Bill of Rights

Answer: James Madison

During the Constitutional Convention of 1787, several different drafts of possible constitutions of government were introduced. James Madison's, known as the "Virginia Plan" was the best received, and years later amended his plan with ten enumerated rights for all citizens. Thomas Jefferson, though a friend of Madison, was against the idea of doing away with the Articles of Confederation (the old Constitution), and against the Convention in general. He probably helped Madison amend the Virginia Plan to include the Bill of Rights, but would have done it by mail. He was in France at the time.

10. Adopted in June 1788, the United States Constitution consists of seven articles. The three branches of the federal government are outlined by the first three articles. Which of the remaining four articles governs how the Constitution may be amended?

From Quiz Amendments of the U.S. Constitution

Answer: Article V

Out of the four remaining articles of the Constitution, the procedures for constitutional amendment is outlined by Article V, providing that: "The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress." In the 1798 case Hollingsworth v. Virginia, the Supreme Court decided that the president is not involved in the amendment process, since Article V doesn't mention the president in any way. Therefore constitutional amendments are the only exception to the president's veto power.

11. The original US Constitution lays out the line of succession in only the most basic way. Should the president die, the vice president automatically becomes president. How was the more complete list of presidential successors established?

From Quiz In the line of succession--American style

Answer: The Presidential Succession Act of 1947

Before the Presidential Succession Act of 1947 was signed by President Truman, the line of succession was played around with by Congress, starting in 1792. In its various forms, the line of succession after the Vice President first had the Speaker of the House, then replaced that with the President Pro Tempore of the Senate, then replaced that with Cabinet members. The 25th Amendment deals with filling the Office of the Vice President, should the vice president die in office. "Marbury vs. Madison" has nothing to do with the succession. It established the right for the courts to declare legislative actions unconstitutional.

12. During which year was the Constitutional Convention convened?

From Quiz Your Daily Constitutional

Answer: 1787

The convention was convened in Philadelphia for the expressed purpose of revising the Articles of Confederation - the original governmental document of the newly independent United States.

13. What does NWSA stand for?

From Quiz Suffrage 1870 - 19th Amendment

Answer: National Woman Suffrage Association

NWSA stands for the National Woman Suffrage Association - not "women's" as many people think. This was a revolutionary movement that branched off from the American Equal Rights Association because of the Civil War Amendment 14. They openly attacked the institution of marriage and targeted the church and the Bible.

14. Which amendment established the federal income tax?

From Quiz The Amendments after the Bill of Rights!

Answer: 16th Amendment

There was a income tax before this, but it was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court in the case Pollock v. Farmer's Loan and Trust.

15. What does 'impeachment' mean?

From Quiz Impeachment

Answer: The first of two stages for a legislative body to remove a government official from office

'Impeachment' is often confused as meaning to involuntarily remove a government official from office, but it is the first stage and is just the legal charges (similar to indictment in criminal law). The second stage is called conviction, and if an official is impeached they will then face a second legislative vote for conviction.

16. The Eleventh Amendment pertains to state immunity from suit. On the face of the Eleventh Amendment, who is forbidden from suing the state?

From Quiz But This Constitution Goes Up to 11!

Answer: Citizens of another state and citizens or subjects of a foreign nation

Enacted as a reaction to the Supreme Court's enforcement of debt actions against states following the revolutionary war, the Eleventh Amendment appears to create a narrow class of "disfavored plaintiffs"; non-state residents may not sue the state.

17. This amendment limits the president to two elected terms, and anyone who was currently serving more then two terms, at the time, could only be elected for one more term.

From Quiz Do You Know The U.S. Amendments?

Answer: 22nd

The 22nd Amendment was passed in 1951, largely as a reaction to President Franklin Roosevelt's being elected to four terms as president.

18. After the Revolutionary War, a farmer-led militia rebellion began in Massachusetts. Farmers were storming and burning courthouses to prevent their debt-ridden farms from being seized. What was the name of this rebellion?

From Quiz The American Constitution

Answer: Shays' Rebellion

Daniel Shays reasoned that if the judges were unable to rule on their cases, they would be unable to take away their farms. Shays' mob grew to about 2,000 strong. Under the Articles of Confederation, states had much authority over themselves, but weak federal backing. This left Massachusetts dealing with the rebellion on their own. The incident showed that the federal government was unable to act in crisis. This is when the "Constitutional Convention" was called.

19. How many people signed the Mayflower compact?

From Quiz Early American Documents

Answer: 41

The men who signed the compact were forced to sign; otherwise, they would not have been let off the boat.

20. Who was the first person in US history to be impeached by the House of Representatives?

From Quiz Groundbreaking Impeachments in US History

Answer: Senator William Blount

Blount was accused by President John Adams of conspiring to seize Spanish Florida and Louisiana. On July 7, 1797 the House informed the Senate that it intended to pursue impeachment. On February 5, 1798 when the Articles of Impeachment were presented, the Senate started to develop the rules for trying impeachments. Over the next year, various rules adopted, many of which are still in effect. On January 11, 1799 the Senate dismissed the case. The reason was that Blount had been expelled from the Senate on July 8, 1797, the day after he found out he was going to be impeached. He refused to attend the trial. After repeated refusals by Blount, the Senate changed the position of doorkeeper into Sergeant-of-Arms on February 5, 1798 and ordered him to arrest Blount. Blount refused to be arrested and stayed in Tennessee, but he did send lawyers to defend himself. The Senate could not decide whether or not they could try an ex-Senator and so eventually they dismissed the charges for lack of jurisdiction.

21. Which amendments are known as the "The Bill of Rights"?

From Quiz Do You Know Your Amendments?

Answer: 1st-10th

The Bill of Rights describes the powers and rights of American citizens.

22. In what Amendment is the freedom of religious worship granted?

From Quiz The Amendments

Answer: 1 & 1st & first & one

The freedom of worship is given two ways, by prohibiting the establishment of an "official" religion and by protecting the free exercise of religious practice.

23. This amendment restructured the Electoral College system.

From Quiz Do you know the "Critical Period" Amendments?

Answer: 12th Amendment

Ratified after the Jefferson/Burr debacle of 1800, it required Electors to cast separate votes for President and Vice President.

24. Which Article created the legislative branch of government?

From Quiz The U.S. Constitution

Answer: Article I

Article I is the longest of the VII and establishes a bicameral (two-house) legislature.

25. The first 10 amendments were proposed at the same time: September 25th, 1789. What name is given to these amendments?

From Quiz American Constitutional Amendments

Answer: Bill of Rights & The Bill of Rights

They were ratified on December 15th, 1791.

26. Which amendment guarantees the right to bear arms?

From Quiz Bill of Rights

Answer: Second

27. Which branch does Article I deal with?

From Quiz United States Constitution

Answer: Legislative

Legislative is Congress.

28. The Bill of Rights consists of how many amendments?

From Quiz Bill of Rights and Amendments

Answer: 10

Although only 8 of them are actually rights!

29. Which two women organized and convened the first public meeting for women's suffrage in 1848?

From Quiz History of Suffragettes

Answer: Lucreta Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton

American women had begun their pursuit of the right to vote in the early 1800's. However, it wasn't until 1848 that Lucreta Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton convened the first Women's Right Convention in Seneca Falls, NY.

30. When did Senator Aaron Sargent of California first introduce the language for the 19th Amendment in Congress?

From Quiz A Century of Suffrage

Answer: 1878
