Liberia, A Special Connection to America

Liberia is a country in West Africa which was founded, established, colonized, and controlled by citizens of the United States and ex-Caribbean slaves as a colony for former African American Slaves and their free black descendants. It is one of only two sovereign countries in the world that were started by citizens and ex-Caribbean slaves of a political power as a colony for former slaves of the same political power, the other being Sierra Leone, established by Great Britain.  A settlement of former slaves was organised by the American Colonization Society (ACS).  The evidence  remains today in the glaringly evident similarities of flag, money, American names attached to cities such as the capital city Monrovia which was named after US President Monroe.
