    So did a lot of folks, looking at the answers. Many of us posted the same thing. I suspect the "wall between church and state" was my miss. I've never heard that specific quote.

    It was definitely Jefferson.

    Jefferson wrote a letter to the Danbury Baptist Association in 1802 to answer a letter from them written in October 1801. A copy of the Danbury letter is available here http://candst.tripod.com/tnppage/baptist.htm. The Danbury Baptists were a religious minority in Connecticut, and they complained that in their state, the religious liberties they enjoyed were not seen as immutable rights, but as privileges granted by the legislature as "favors granted." Jefferson's reply did not address their concerns about problems with state establishment of religion only of establishment on the national level. The letter contains the phrase "wall of separation between church and state," which led to the short-hand for the Establishment Clause that we use today: "Separation of church and state."

    The letter was the subject of intense scrutiny by Jefferson, and he consulted a couple of New England politicians to assure that his words would not offend while still conveying his message: it was not the place of the Congress or the Executive to do anything that might be misconstrued as the establishment of religion.

    I knew it didn't occur in the original documents, but wasn't sure. Figured it was either Washington or Jefferson. Washington was a little less controversial as he bowed out of the presidency, so I picked Jeff.

    Not sure which one missed now.

    If y'all liked this (and I did) these 10 are part of a 33 question test at

    I encourage you to take it and challenge yourselves a bit further.
    Not asking you to report back, just maybe learn something new or refresh your memory. Have fun! You've got a good chance at getting at least 10 right!

    I had a few guesses in there, but I am pretty happy to say that I got a 84.85% (28/33) correct. Some of those were tough!
