You don't know anything about US history

That survey returns to bite you

American Conquest developer CDV has established that we all know less than a pass mark's worth of American history, despite the historically accurate RTS title putting on a good show critically and hopefully worming its way in to some of your collections.

The results of a recent survey, which some of you completed as we recall, produced an average score of 39 per cent. 57 per cent didn't know who America was named after, and 65 per cent didn't know which treaty ended the War of Independence.

"We're confident that these students would score much higher after playing American Conquest," CDV's Leo Zullo commented.
