Just realized something. Using simply the Netherlands as a country is wrong as the Netherlands is not a sovereign state. It is a constituent country of the Kingdom of Netherlands. If Netherlands is a country so is Aruba, Curaçao, and Sint Maarten.

But what is the common name of the Kingdom of the Netherlands? It's similar to saying the 'United States of Mexico'.

Surprised Battle of Blair Mountain doesn't appear. Largest armed uprising since the Civil War of a bunch of coal miners in West Virginia in the 1920s.

I figure it's already semi-included with the Coal Wars. Perhaps I will update the quiz to include individual battles.
