American History Not on the test

Name the 3 original States

If you want the first three of the original 13 states, they are:

Delaware (December 7, 1787)

Pennsylvania December 12, 1787

New Jersey December 18, 1787

These are the first colonies to become states. So all of this started with Delaware. I’ll just say that again to let it sink in – Delaware – aka the Blue Hen State, the Diamond State, the First State.

In the US immigration test, you are only asked for three of the original thirteen states, so any three will do. The list above is simply the first three, which became states in 1787.

Rights and Responsibilities

When must all men stand up and be counted?

All men must register for the Selective Service at age 18. Not women though. So much for gender equality. You must register:

between ages 18 and 26

You can register for Selective Service online, even if you’re an undocumented immigrant, which seems a little odd to me, as you don’t then necessarily have any rights to live in the US.
