In 1817, an organization was established to champion for the abolition of slavery in most parts of America, this meant that those people that had been freed from slavery during this process had to be repatriated back to their countries of origin. The American Colonization Society (ACS) that was under Robert Finley of New Jersey was tasked with this huge role. This society was the only primary vehicle that was in existence at that time to drum support for the return of free African Americans to their homeland, Africa. This society started as a small organization that was never thought to have any impact. however, the society was responsible for the founding of the colony of Liberia between 1821-1822. To this effect, Liberia became instrumental as a place where freedmen would be settled. This was a great step towards finding an alternative for the process of colonization in most parts of Africa, this meant that Liberia did not have to be colonized. Instead, it served as the place where those people reed from slavery would be resettled. This process received support from many people, who thought that this was a good thing. some of these people included John Randolph, Henry Clay, Brand Lee among others.
