Was this a M*A*S*H character or Vice President of the United States?

Were they acquaintances of Benjamin Franklin Pierce… or work with Franklin Pierce?

M*A*S*H felt real because it was based on reality. The rich characters helped, too. 

With names like Henry Braymore Blake, Sherman Tecumseh Potter, John Francis Xavier McIntyre and Benjamin Franklin Pierce, the members of the 4077th sounded like figures straight out of American history. They could easily be mistaken for real generals or senators… or Vice Presidents.

See if you can tell the difference between characters in Jeeps and real American Veeps!

You got 14 out of 15 - Go ahead and toot your horn! You passed this trivia test! Missed #11, had a brain cramp and was thinking of "Smilin' Jack" the chopper pilot.

# 2 , Charles Gates Dawes, wrote the pop song It's all in the game, he wrote the tune sometime in the 1920s and around the mid 1950s it became a hit record for Tommy Edwards.

I got 13 out of 15. Happy with that. Vice Presidents are much harder to identify since you seldom hear about them. They make excellent trivia questions, though.

I must say, I never knew John Nance Garner was either a "III", or Nicknamed "Cactus Jack" (perhaps the inspiration for the name of Kirk Douglas's character in "The Villain"?) But I do know the names of the all the U.S. veeps. So yeah, I aced that one.

Couldn't miss on William Rufus Devane King. He was VP at the time Washington was made a state, and King county (where Seattle is located) was named for him. Later, they changed the county so it could be named after Martin Luther King Jr instead, and didn't have to pay to have any signs changed.
