Of all of the politicians who supported the American Colonization Society, James Monroe did the most to support the colony financially. Through his efforts, the federal government assisted in the resettlement of African Americans in Liberia. Preston considers Monroe’s motives for supporting the society and explores his ideas about race and slavery in the process.
