Americo-Liberian society, 19th C.

[B]y the late nineteenth century, Americo-Liberian society had become a grotesque mirror of the one the  settlers and left behind in the American South, This was particularly apparent in Monrovia, where plantation  dress and lifestyles had become the norm among the nation's elite.
Johnny Dwyer, American Warlord: A True Story (New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2015), ch. 2.
