Good quiz! I kept reading "River on Tennessee's western border" as eastern. Couldn't figure out why Cumberland wasn't correct.

You should change Oak Ridge and add something more known like the Sunsphere in Knoxville I'm just giving a suggestion, since I was born there. =)

The Rural Electrification Administration (REA), which was part of the Department of Agriculture, wster actually the only "federal" agency whose employees worked to provide electric power across US rural areas. REA, now RUS, provided public electric cooperatives with low-interest loans to these coops so most everyone could have electricity.

This was all part of FDR'S New Deal, which provided jobs and helped bring the US out of the Great Depression.

Have you only heard 40 songs in total? Just kidding... they were clearly very talented, and if I could tell a joke half as well as they could play you'd probably be laughing right now.

I hope the days will come when I revisit the states quizzes and my scores go up from my measly 1/5. If the question was asking for Monkey Trial I would have got it.

Someone already pointed this out, but TVA is not a federal agency. It doesn't even have a dot gov address. It is a public corporation with a dot com internet address. The agency you are referring to is the Rural Electrification Administration (REA). You should fix the quiz.
