TENNESSEE

Answer: The state quarter of Tennessee features three musical instruments - the fiddle, the trumpet, and the guitar - for the state's three most popular kinds of music. A fiddle stands for the bluegrass music of the mountains of east Tennessee. A guitar stands for the country music of central Tennessee, where Nashville is. A trumpet stands for the blues of west Tennessee and the city of Memphis. People throughout Tennessee entered a contest to design the coin. After Mint artists developed designs from ideas that came from people who live in the state, Governor Don Sundquist chose “Musical Heritage” as the final design for the state’s quarter.

Answer: On this day in 1969, Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon when he stepped out of the lunar module. So what does one eat to celebrate something as momentous as landing on the moon? The first meal eaten on the moon, consisted of bacon squares, peaches, sugar cookie cubes, pineapple grapefruit drink and coffee. They ate history’s first meal on the moon slightly ahead of schedule after landing at the Sea of Tranquility. Bacon has a long history in the American space program, showing up in meals as far back as the early Gemini missions.

Answer: Earth's moon is the brightest object in our night sky and the closest celestial body. The moon's orbit around Earth is elliptical. On average, the distance from Earth to the moon is about 238,855 miles. That wasn't always the case. Scientists believe the moon formed when a massive Mars-sized object collided with the young planet. Gravity pulled the debris from the crash together to form the moon. Earth and its newly formed companion were 10 to 20 times closer together at their birth than they are now. Today, the moon is moving away from Earth at a rate of about 1.5 inches per year.

Why Were Ice Cream Sundaes Invented?

Although there are several stories about how the ice cream sundae was invented, the most popular one had to do with ice cream sodas. Ice cream sodas were popular every day of the week, but shop owners were not allowed to sell them on Sundays because they were sugary treats. Edward Berners, who owned an ice cream parlor, got around the law by selling a customer an ice cream soda minus the soda, so it only had the syrup on it. It became so popular that Berner called it a sundae, changing the spelling so it would not be associated with the word Sunday.

Which Popular Ice Cream Flavor Came First - Vanilla or Chocolate? 

While most people might think that vanilla was the first ice cream flavor, it was chocolate. The reason for this is that early ice cream was flavored with drinks such as tea, coffee or chocolate. The first known recipe for chocolate ice cream was in a 1692 book titled The Modern Steward, which was published in the Northern Italian city of Naples.

When Did the First Ice Cream Parlor Open in the United States?

In 1774, an advertisement appeared in a New York newspaper announcing that Philip Lenzi, a British confectioner, would be serving it nearly every day. By the middle of the 19th century, ice cream parlors were everywhere. However, until about 1800, ice cream remained an exotic type of dessert generally only enjoyed by the wealthy.

What American President Spent the Equivalent of $5,000 One Summer on Ice Cream?

George Washington was a real aficionado of ice cream and spent $200 over one summer for the luscious frozen dessert, which would equal about $5,000 today. Records kept while Washington was president show that he purchased ice plates, ice pots, which are cups for ice cream, and several complete iceries. He was known to serve ice cream to guests when they visited.

When Did Ice Cream Cones Gain Popularity?

Ice cream cones were supposedly first served in St. Louis, Missouri, at the World’s Fair in 1904. The legend goes that a vendor of ice cream ran out of the cardboard dishes he served the sweet treat on and had to have something in which to serve. There was a waffle vendor next door who couldn’t sell his product because in the summer heat people were passing him by, so he turned his waffles into cones by rolling them. Combining the two was apparently a big hit among visitors at the fair.

 DETROIT

Answer: The first mile of concrete pavement was placed in Detroit, Michigan on Woodward Avenue. The pavement stretched from Six Mile Road to Seven Mile Road and was built in 1909. The cost at the time was $14,000. Roads up to that point – if they were paved at all – had been built with brick, cobblestone, or a material called macadam, which was not much more than stones sprayed with a tar to form some kind of wear resistant surface. Woodward Avenue would later be one of the first street’s to have a painted centerline and electronic traffic signal.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN

Answer: The Lincoln Tunnel is an approximately 1.5-mile-long tunnel under the Hudson River, connecting Weehawken, New Jersey on the west bank with Midtown Manhattan in New York City on the east bank. It was designed by Ole Singstad and named after Abraham Lincoln. The tunnel consists of three vehicular tubes of varying lengths, with two traffic lanes in each tube. The tubes of the Lincoln Tunnel were constructed in stages between 1934 and 1957. Construction of the central tube, which originally lacked sufficient funding due to the Great Depression, started in 1934 and it opened in 1937.

Andrew Jackson

Answer: The seventh U.S. President, Andrew Jackson is featured on the front side of the $20 bill since 1928; the White House is featured on the reverse. The placement of Jackson on the $20 bill may be a historical irony; as president, he vehemently opposed both the National Bank and paper money and made the goal of his administration the destruction of the National Bank. In his farewell address to the nation, he cautioned the public about paper money. The average circulation life of a $20 bill is 7.9 years before it is replaced due to wear.
