The venerable Buffalo News offers a quiz on our 13th president, Millard Fillmore, native son of Buffalo.

Happy birthday, Millard Fillmore, born January 7, 1800.

Nice of the Berkshire-Hathaway owned Buffalo News to make such a great tool for teachers, eh?

    It’s Buffalonians. And, I don’t know about all the questions, but they’d certainly get the one about the hospital.

    I wonder if most Buffaloans (Buffalo-ites? Buffalonis? Buffali? Bulls and Cows? What do you guys call yourselves?) could get the quiz, just by living in Millard Fillmore’s space? I wonder how badly others do by not being there?
