Isn't "revision" the English English for what we call "studying" on this side of the Pond?

After a little revision, I scored 100% Now I have an Masters in American History, courtesy of the internet!

Also 95%; Congress must've snuck a few amendments in when I wasn't looking...

I did feel incorrect, though, picking Thomas Jefferson as the author of the Declaration. He shared that honor with John Adams.

95%. There are (many) more Weasels in the House of Representatives than I ever imagined.
