    I was curious to see why this information, which should be rote for all Americans, needed a posting.

    That stated, you have other mistakes published here. There are several misspellings…corrections: North Dakota, and South Dakota,-Columbus, Ohio…you should also check the spelling of Florida’s capital…and the capital of Delaware is not Hartford, it’s Dover.
