Just in case you are interested these memory techniques are from Jim Kwik, a memory coach. You can find him on you tube…check him out. And remember you can make up anything you like to help you remember the capitals…this is just what I use.
Now for the capital of North Dakota. In the mid 1800’s a large number of Germans moved to North Dakota in hopes of getting land. Before the Euro became the currency for all of Europe the German Mark was the currency in Germany. So when I think of North Dakota I think of Germany and the Mark and that reminds me that the capital of North Dakota is Bismarck.
