It is weird, I can't get in the link as I used to. It keeps showing that the link's certificate is not trusted. I tried both Chrome and IE, it just can't. :blink:

The site's security certificate is not trusted!
You attempted to reach twitter.com, but the server presented a certificate issued by an entity that is not trusted by your computer's operating system. This may mean that the server has generated its own security credentials, which Google Chrome cannot rely on for identity information, or an attacker may be trying to intercept your communications. You should not proceed, especially if you have never seen this warning before for this site.

Odd, seems to be working fine for me, and I use Chrome. Not to worry, I didn't include any bad links in the news ;)

A4: September 9th, 1963 lol no

His later appointments included: captain of Cavalry, CSA (May 24, 186 1); colonel, 1st Virginia Cavalry (July 16, 1861); brigadier general, CSA (September 24, 1861)

Linky for above.

As with most twitter quiz's, there will always be questions like that :) So much information out there on the net that is wrong or slightly "off".

Stuart was not alive to command anything in 1963, they did it again.

Q6: What Unit did Stuart temporarily command from May 3-6, 1963?
How are we expected to answer questions when they are not correct?
J.E.B Stuart died May 12, 1864, so unless this quiz is about someone else, what are you asking?

May 12, 1864 is over a year after May 3-6 1863. But yah, the quiz seems pretty messed up so far.

Why did you downvote me? The question specifically said 1863... And as for the quiz being messed up, most of it is so obscure that people are coming up with a million different answers.

Hah. found the 9 you all were talking about.

I just noticed that I've been misspelling Stuart (Stewart) on the subject line of all my emails. Hope that doesn't disqualify them :P

Yep, but the question asks about 1963 - just like he was promoted 100 years after he died in question 4.
