Last week’s question
Which U.S. state’s motto is Sic semper tyrannis (Thus always to tyrants)?

a. Massachusetts
b. Vermont
c. Virginia
d. West Virginia

The correct answer is C. Sic semper tyrannis appears on the state seal of Virginia as the state’s motto. After fatally shooting President Abraham Lincoln, actor John Wilkes Booth jumped to the stage of Ford’s Theater and shouted “Sic semper tyrannis” before fleeing the scene. The phrase is also the motto of the United States Navy attack submarine USS Virginia and Allentown, the third largest city in Pennsylvania. It is referenced in the official state song of Maryland.

As a side note, Virginia, along with Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and Kentucky, is actually called a Commonwealth, but in the United States a commonwealth and a state are the same.
