Discover the history of Liberia on Providence Island, a small landmass best known as the place where liberated American slaves arrived after returning to Africa. The first group landed on the tiny island in 1822, and went on to form the ethnic group Americo-Liberians. Take a walk around the island, and don't miss its landmark--a tree made from weapons that symbolizes the end of Liberia's civil wars.
