Ottoman Empire, Austrian Empire, Russian Empire, Kingdom of Sardinia ( = Piedmont-Sardinia), Kingdom of Two Sicilies, Papal States, Switzerland, Kingdom of Prussia, Kingdom of Sweden (and Norway), Denmark, Netherlands, France, United Kingdom (Great Britain), Portugal, and Spain.

You may need a combination of maps to find all of the cities listed. Start with the map in Hunt, p. 702; but consult also the maps on pp. 605 and elswhere. Click for a useful supplementary map. A blank map for studying is available here.
Geography Quiz #2: The colonized world in around 1914.

The information you will need to know may be found on pages 803 and 805 of your textbook by Hunt (the map on p. 971 could also be useful). Your job in the quiz will consist of TWO tasks: 1) you will place the territories below on blank maps provided; 2) in the case of each of the territories, you will indicate which colonial power claimed sovereignty over it. In some cases (e.g., China, Mongolia, Persia, etc.), the territories in question remained formally independent and should be labelled that way on the quiz. For the purposes of this exercise, you may treat ALL of the territory of India as being under British rule. The territories you will need to know are:

Mongolia (=Outer Mongolia), Siam, China, Malayan States, Australia, Philippines, India, Indochina (=Laos, Cambodia & Cochinchina), Korea, Burma, Persia, Netherlands (Dutch) East Indies

IN AFRICA: Madagascar, Algeria, Libya, Eritrea, Union of South Africa, Morocco, Italian Somaliland, Nigeria, Egypt. French West Africa, French Equatorial Africa, German East Africa, Angola, Mozambique, British East Africa, Rhodesia, German Southwest Africa, Ethiopia, Belgian Congo.

Geography Quiz #3: Contemporary Europe

On a blank  map of Europe, you will be asked to place all modern countries--from Iceland in the northwest to Turkey in the southeast--on a blank map, as well as the capital cities of France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Poland, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, and Ukraine (1 point each). Use the maps in Hunt on p. 1045 and on the inside cover at the front of the book. You may also earn up to 10 extra points by naming the capitals of other countries not listed above. You will only need to place the countries on the map, but you will have to know the capitals in question actively.  A blank map, showing Europe in ca. 2000, is available HERE.
