Can you name the capitals of all 50 states?

Raise your hand if you remember learning, then reciting, all 50 state capitals in elementary school. Take this quiz to find out how many of them you remember.

State capitals can be confusing. Why? Because many of us associate a state's capital with its largest city or best-known city. So, when you think of Florida, you might think that Miami or Fort Lauderdale is the capital when the actual capital of Florida is Tallahassee. 

To make things more confusing, sometimes state capitals move. And, although you might think that this doesn't happen often, half of all 50 states have moved their state capital from their originally selected city at least once. 

Huh? State capitals move? They sure do. This happens usually for political reasons, but sometimes the move just makes good sense. And, although the state capitals have remained constant since 1910, some states continue to discuss moving their capitals. For instance, some of the great citizens of Nevada have proposed moving the state capital from Carson City to Las Vegas. And, although the majority of Nevada voters are opposed to the move, there isn't anything in writing that prohibits a state from changing its capital.

Assuming these capitals haven't moved since we published this quiz, test your knowledge to find out just how many of them you know.
