Cleopatra was born in Egypt (Alexandria) therefore she was Egyptian from a Greek family. Also slavery existed long before the Americas were even thought of, not a very well thought out question either.

After the Revelutionary War the Northern States of the newly formed United State set out to abolished Slavery of any kind in 1789 by 1805 there were absolutely no slaves in the north. Including our nations capital. It was in fact only the Southern States that insisted on keeping their slaves. That lead to the Civil War and the final abolition of slavery in 1865.

Number two asks a question regarding the United States but then uses a statement about history before there was a United States to defend the answer. Strange.

The Beer Flood was a "trick question". It really happened and people died. The trick is the number of people who died.
