More information about Final Jeopardy:

According to the Library of Congress, the Articles of Confderation and Perpetual Union were adopted in November 1777 and sent to the states for ratification. Once ratification occurred by the states, the Articles were ordered to be engrossed on June 26, 1778. Unfortunately, the first engrossed copy was found to be incorrect the next day. A second engrossed copy was produced and was signed and ratified by eight states on July 9, 1778.

The Articles of Confederation were the original constitution of the United States, but there were immediately issues with it, as the central government’s power as quite limited, especially in terms of enforcement powers. The United States’ current constitution was drafted in 1787, ratified by 1788, and the government began operations under its new form on March 4, 1789.

  1. Hmm. I’m not sure what to make of the FJ wagers today. It seems like all three wagered too much money – or were they just that confident in their knowledge of the category? 🙂

    • Don’t know about the other two, but Kate’s wager is the head scratcher for me.

      • To be quite honest, if you know your opponents are going to bet rationally, “all but $1” isn’t a terrible play under these scores, as it just about maximizes your winnings if you’re correct.

      • I’m guessing Kate simply liked the category. In a very limited sample size so far, she appears to have a broad knowledge base.
