So… I just got home from hanging out with my buddies and also watching Xmen 3. The movie was pretty cool… but I feel like I wanted more. But anyway… I was talking to my buddies and our conversation drifted to the questions they ask in a naturalization interview. So we asks each other to name 10 of the original 13 states. I was thinking about it and I said Georgia was one. All my friends say… no Georgia was not… So after coming home … I was still sure that Georgia was a 13 colonies, I looked it up … and I was correct. So all of my friends are natural born US citizens… so who is more American now? ha ha ha… just kidding guys….

Virginia 1607 London Company 1624
Massachusetts 1620 Puritans 1691
