Lots of toughies in this one, so I googled after I submitted. I got the Captain Cook/Waterloo one wrong because I had the Aussie Federation date in my head instead of the first penal colony. One would think I would have remembered when Captain Cook was around, but no.
Kennedy is younger than I thought. I figured she wasn't born when JFK was killed, but I thought maybe she was a very young Boomer, so it was relatively close. Turns out she was born in '72.
Conversely, I was thinking the Kentucky Derby started sometime in the early 1900s, but it's been around since 1875.
