The U.S. Supreme Court has played a large role in U.S. history, at times reflecting the mass sentiment of the era and at other times disregarding popular views to extend rights to our citizens.
The court, which begins its next term Monday, Oct. 1, has been much in the news lately.
Many citizens have a limited understanding of American history and our unique form of constitutional government.
Without this knowledge, how can we expect them to exercise the rights and responsibilities of citizenship?
The quiz below, from the Ashbrook Center at Ashland University in Ohio, provides an opportunity for you to test your knowledge of the court and several of its landmark decisions.
 
[wp_quiz id=”30672″]  
Answers:  1-B, 2-A, 3-B, 4-A, 5-D, 6-C, 7-C, 8-B, 9-D, 10-A
