Background: James Meredith takes the first of the final examinations for the first semester at the University of Mississippi. These are the examinations that may very well determine whether or not James Meredith continues to attend the University of Mississippi at this time. This particular test was on American Colonial history. Other students reported it was quite difficult. Meredith when asked about how he did said only, with a laugh, "We'll all know pretty soon."
