Emoji Riddles™: American History by Sidework AI

The history of the United States isn’t very long compared to other countries, but it is well documented. Natives may have inhabited the Americas as far back as 30,000 years ago, but the true beginnings of the American experiment start with the voyages of Christopher Columbus. After the European discovery of the “New World”, pilgrims started arriving in waves for a variety of reasons. Some early pilgrims relied on the natives’ generosity to get settled for their first Thanksgiving meal while other colonies struggled to get started. Eventually, the British colonial population grew to over 2 million people. Shared struggles in the French and Indian War and conflicts with the British government led to the American Revolution, and the rest as they say is history. The American History riddle pack covers important people, governmental decisions, and notable events that shaped the United States.

Emojillian Drift

Winston Churchill once famously observed that Americans will always do the right thing, only after they have tried everything else.

No one really knows if Churchill actually said that but it is said often enough that the Emoji AI believes it to be true. Apparently it’s been coined “Churchillian Drift”. The Emoji AI hopes to be famous enough one day that the Emojist quotes said by lesser known AIs are attributed to her.
