Day two of our Oklahoma Almanac celebration! We especially love the Almanac because it’s just chock full of fun facts for every trivia buff on topics ranging from the state’s emblems, Rhodes scholars, and the fourteen flags that flew over Oklahoma to the territorial and state governors, U.S. marshals, and Oklahoma Hall of Fame inductees.
Try your hand at this Oklahoma trivia. I’ll have the answers for you tomorrow:
1. What is the English translation of the Choctaw word “Oklahoma”?
2. What are the two major river basins in the state?
