I was going to say none, because I couldn't think of any, but then I cheated and looked it up, so I know the answer. I won't ruin anyone else's fun by saying, though. ;)

I thought j's comment could be published since she didn't give anything away! I will put the answers here in a couple of days, but since it took us that long to get it right I thought I'd give you a little more time. and, no, Cleveland is not the capital of Ohio...

Shannon...you need to find something we can't google!!!OL!!

You're not supposed to cheat! I thought it was a good exercise to go through the capitals to see what we remembered!

Was Baton Rouge a President? Oklahoma City? Being a Useless man, I knew I'd be bad at this but Wow, I'm bad at this.

o.k. here they are in no particular order. First, I must say that it took us three days and four people (me, hubby, mil, and fil) to figure it out. Hubby and I had what we thought were all four, but Cleveland was one of our guesses. My mil came up with the last one...
Lincoln, Nebraska. Knew this one because I have been through it a few dozen times... Madison, WI. My family is from just South of there, and one of our businesses is headquartered there. Jackson, MI. I thought hubby made this one up. I stand corrected! The last one is Jefferson, MO. Phew! A plus to those who figured it out without peeking at google, an atlas, or other map!
