Friday’s Trivia Question!

OK, Thursday’s question may have been a little easy. But that’s the thing about trivia questions: You just never know what you’re going to get.

That’s why you need to bone up on your Maryland and political history in advance of this month’s must-attend eventMaryland Matters’ Maryland history and politics trivia contest on Tuesday evening, March 27, in the upstairs bar at Stan & Joe’s Saloon, 37 West St., Annapolis. It’ll cost just $10 to participate. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the contest begins at 7 p.m.

Save the date…and click here to RSVP.

Please make your contribution ‘In Honor of Trivia Night’ to reserve your space.

We’ll provide more details about the contest in the days ahead.

We’ll be asking a trivia question each day to get you in practice. Here’s the question we posted Thursday:


Who is the former slave and abolitionist known for returning to the South to help free over 300 slaves and lead them along the Underground Railroad?

The answer: Harriet Tubman

Now, the next question:

Who is the Jesuit who was the first priest to celebrate a Catholic Mass in the English colonies? Extra point if you can name where the Mass took place.

Check this space Monday for the answer — and the next question! And please make plans to join us on the 27th.
