On Monday, Liberian President Charles Taylor resigned his position and left the country. He is believed to be on his way to Nigeria, where he was offered immunity. U.S. officials hope his departure will put an end to 14 years of violence in Liberia, which was founded by freed American slaves in the 19th century.
