The Trivia Thread

Well, this is almost exactly like the "Ask a stupid question..." thread, and as such the same rules apply.

(The thread starter asks a question. Whoever posts afterward answers the question, but asks another one. Then whoever posts after Answerer #1 answers their question, and asks another. On and on and on.)


However, instead of posting stupid and/or silly questions, they must be serious trivia questions, and the answers must also be serious (and preferrably correct...)

Anyway, I suppose I'll start us off: what color was Alexander Hamilton's hair?
