Nice puzzle. I did better than I expected. When I saw the title I said "Oh crap!", or something like that. Pleasantly surprised.

Enjoyed your Wordpuzzle, Al! Thanks! Seems like the last couple of days for whatever reason, when I choose a certain vowel, I won't say which one, I must double click or something, because I end up with a wrong letter which hardly ever shows up in a puzzle. Think I need to pay more attention!

OK, something seriously wrong here.
If a Brit without using google can be second in this puzzle (OK it wont last) then remedial history lessons are required all round.

Thanks to everyone for their kind thoughts and kudos. My inspiration for this puzzle came after I traveled to Washington, DC a few weeks ago-- visiting several of the historic landmarks. I requested a launch near July 4, envisioning it as an appropriate reminder of our nation's heritage. I wanted the facts to allow for a fair and meaningful puzzle for all Sploofusers to take across the world. A history lesson is appropriate every now and then. The best way to protect Democracy is to remember its roots.
Most everyone scored well- so congratulations for your efforts.
A special thank you to Sploofernatural, for excellent suggestions for editing a few phrases down to the new character limitations.
[And take Garybl's suggestion to good heart- congrats to him for his love of history- see his post earlier]

Here are all ten phrases.

in eighteen hundred washington was established as the capital of the usa ("Seat of U.S. government")
erected in his memory the obelisk stands five hundred fifty five feet tall ("Washington Monument")
his statue is surrounded by inscription panels of his most famous writings ("The Jefferson Memorial")
the declaration of independence the constitution and the bill of rights ("In the National Archives")
the executive mansion is located at sixteen hundred pennsylvania avenue ("The White House")
worlds largest document repository serves as the research arm of congress ("Library of Congress")
surprisingly was not provided its own building until nineteen thirty five ("The Supreme Court")
the presidents state of the union address is delivered to congress yearly ("At the U.S. Capitol")
site of martin luther kings i have a dream speech in nineteen sixty three ("The Lincoln Memorial")
tomb of the unknown soldier and the eternal flame at john f kennedys grave ("At Arlington Cemetery")

Happy 4th of July!

Al

Talking about a History lessons....
JANK just posted (on another thread) the history of Public Schools
- started so all American children could get a basic education and
READ THE BIBLE. Now Religion and the 10 commandments have been
taken out of the schools....with dire effects on levels of violence etc.
Interesting from both a Historical and a Moral point of view.
