History Quiz!

In order to try and liven the place up a bit I propose a quiz!

Rules are simple, I ask a question- Whoever gets it right asks a question, who gets that right asks a question and so on and so forth!

As for Rules:
  • No Muppetry (Tbh I dont expect any but it has to go down)
  • Please dont spam.
  • Lets not go for impossible questions. Sure you may know how Eisenhower brushed his hair on a Wednesday morning when he had a craving for eggs, but does anyone else? Dont go overboard
  • Each correct answer is awarded one point.
  • Only the first person with the correct answer gets the point. (me snips loophole)
  • Have fun!
  • NO GOOGLING!

/edit for last rule
/another edit for the One Guess Rule- Tisnt feasible

Ill start easy:

Austria vs Prussia, 1866. Who won?

Mauser.

Here's a thought? Surely the original questioner should mark the answers as correct or not. This could get messy
