State capitals can be confusing. Why? Because many of us associate a state's capital with its largest city or best-known city. So, when you think of Florida, you might think that Miami or Orlando is the capital, when the actual capital of Florida is Tallahassee.
To make things more confusing, sometimes state capitals move. Although you might think that this doesn't happen often, half of all 50 states have moved their state capital from their originally selected city at least once.
This usually happens for political reasons, but sometimes the move just makes sense; the location is more central to commerce hubs or population centers. Despite the fact that the state capitals have remained constant since 1910, some states continue to discuss moving their capitals. For instance, some of the great citizens of Nevada have proposed moving the state capital from Carson City to Las Vegas. And, although the majority of Nevada voters are opposed to the move, there isn't anything in writing that prohibits a state from changing its capital.
Assuming these capitals haven't moved since we published this quiz, test your knowledge to find out just how many of them you know!
