Final Jeopardy! category: STATE CAPITAL GEOGRAPHY

Final Jeopardy! clue: Of the 5 U.S. state capitals that begin with the letter “A”, the one that is farthest north

Click/Tap Here for Correct Response

What is Augusta, Maine?



Erin 7000 + 1000 = 8000
Michelle 15800 + 1799 = 17599
Todd 16400 + 15201 = 31601

After Kent’s interview yesterday about state capitals, I bet he was thinking “oh no, one day late!” (Though, he did also say “I probably knew it better then (when he was 3 years old)” at the end of that interview.)

In case anyone was interested in the exact co-ordinates for the 5 state capitals that start with “A”, they’re sorted below:
ME: 44°18′38″N
NY: 42°39′9.34″N
MD: 38°58′22.6″N
GA: 33°45′18″N
TX: 30°16′N
