Free History BONUS Inside!
From plantation owner to diplomat to U.S. President, James Monroe was known for his tenacity in pursuing what he thought was right, while also being honored for his fair policies, such as the Monroe Doctrine and policies to develop the country’s infrastructure. These traits were recognized in 1816, when the West African country of Liberia, changed its name to Monrovia, in honor of James Monroe. It serves as the only international capital named after a U.S. President, and only one of two capitals in the world named after a U.S. President—the other being Washington, D.C.
