"Main city" is a bit ambiguous. "Largest city" would be better imo. When I think of the main city of SIlesia I think of Wroclaw/Breslau - the historical capital of Silesia and a major city itself. THough admittedly neither Breslau or Wroclaw is 8 letters.

Agreed, when I think of the region, Wroclaw or Ostrava come to mind first, though admittedly the latter is mostly in CR.

True. But seriously: Nebraska (8-letters) is a land and it contains Lincoln (its capital, actually)

And "Michigan" has 8 letters, and it's the home of Lincoln Motor Company. ;-)

Illinois' state nickname is The "Land of Lincoln." Note the quotes and capital letters in the quiz.

Or it could be Carlsbad, home of LEGOLAND and Legos are kind of like Lincoln Logs.

Liberia (seven letters) also resisted European colonization thus your clue might reflect only eight letter African country to resist...

I can't say that I know a lot about Liberian history, but wasn't that a country established by former slaves taken from Africa to the USA? On top of that, I am not sure that Liberia was actually threatened by colonisation. The question isn't asking about African countries that were not colonised, but about African countries that actively resisted colonisation, as was the case with Ethiopia and Italy.

Liberia was founded by American colonists. Before that, the area was most certainly colonized by European traders.

I would say that Ethiopia was successfully colonized by Italy, but then we'd get to the complicated part of international politics known as recognition. So I'll just stick with saying "Good quiz!"

Although it wasn't literally colonised, Ethiopia was occupied by Fascist Italy for five years, until 1941.

More occupied than colonised. Just as we wouldn't say France was 'colonised' by Germany 6 years later.

Ethiopia was briefly colonized by Italy. All African countries were once colonies, but Liberia by Western powers, not European.

haha I typed in "bethelem" instead of "nazareth". I guess I really need to study my Christian history, but in my defense "bethelem" has eight letters as well.
