The capital of Liberia is named after which U.S. President?

Along with Washington, D.C., it is one of two national capitals to be named after a U.S. President. As the fifth president of the United States, James Monroe is known for his “Monroe Doctrine,” disallowing further European colonization in the Americas. Monroe, who died in 1831, was the last “Founding Father” to serve as President of the United States.
The correct answer is James Monroe.
