Anthony William Gardiner
PRESIDENT

Anthony William Gardiner

(1820-1885)

Anthony William Gardiner was the president of Liberia from 1878 until 1883. He was the second member of the True Whig Party to hold that office, and the first of a series of True Whig presidents who held power uninterruptedly until 1980. Gardiner was upset that Liberia could not protect its claim to the Gallinas, a northern coastal area between the Mano and Sewa Rivers, from European colonial encroachment. Economically and militarily weak, Liberia was forced to allow the British to annex the area next to Sierra Leone. Gardiner was so upset in the way the British took part of Liberia's territory, he resigned from office and vice-president Alfred F. Russell became president. Gardiner was born in the state of Virginia in the United States. In 1831, when he was still a child, his family relocated to Liberia under the sponsorship of the American Colonization Society. Gardiner received his law decree in Liberia and, in 1847, he served as a delegate to the National Convention, which drafted Liberia's declaration of independence and constitution. He became Liberia's first attorney general and later served in the National Legislature from 1855 to 1871.
GBANGA Gbarnga is a town in Bong County, Liberia, lying north east of Monrovia. During the Liberian Civil War, it was the base for Charles Taylor's National Patriotic Front of Liberia. Cuttington College lies near the town and its campus was once home to the Africana Museum, now destroyed. The town is twinned with Baltimore, Maryland, in the United States.
GBARPOLU COUNTY Created in 2001, Gbarpolu is the youngest of Liberia's 15 counties. It is situated in the northwest of Liberia, occupies an area of approximately 1,263 square miles, and was estimated to have a population of 131,227 inhabitants before the war. Gbarpolu county is bordered by Lofa County to the north, Bomi County to the south, Bong County to the west, and Grand Cape Mount County and Sierra Leone to the east. There are 5 districts within Gbarpolu County: Bopolu - Bokomu - Belleh - Gbarma - Komgba. The majority of Gbarpolu consists of forest. Mining was the primary economic activity prior to the Liberian Civil War, in addition to subsistence farming. However, the war devastated all sectors of the county.
Garretson Wilmot Gibson
PRESIDENT

Garretson Wilmot Gibson

(May 20/1832 - April 26/1910)

Garretson Wilmot Gibson was President of Liberia from December 11, 1900, to January 4, 1904. Born in Maryland, in the United States, his family emigrated to Liberia in 1835. After receiving an education in mission schools, he returned to Maryland to study theology. Ordained a priest, he served as rector of the Episcopalian Trinity Church in Monrovia. He also served as president of Liberia College (1892-1896). With the election of William D. Coleman as president in 1896, Gibson was appointed Secretary of the Interior. He was Secretary of State when Coleman resigned in 1900, and since there was no vice-president, Gibson was chosen to succeed him. He won the election that same year, and served until 1904, when he was succeeded by his Secretary of the Treasury, Arthur Barclay.

Study/background on the UN Sanctions (Resolutions 1343 United Nations Security Council).

Little revenue derived from the Liberian logging industry and from the Liberian shipping register benefit the Liberian people.Were sanctions to be placed on the shipping register very few Liberian jobs would be affected, while jobs held within the logging industry, an estimated 8,000, are seasonal, insecure, and in large percentage held by non-Liberians. In 5-10 years, at current logging practices, Liberia is likely to be completely commercially logged out.At this time there will be no jobs and no possibility of timber revenue for the Liberian people.The years leading up to this would be years where regional insecurity would have a steady source of revenue, where the people would continue to suffer intimidation by logging company militias, and where the illicit arms trade would be permitted to continue.

Gola People The Gola or Gula are a tribal people living in western Liberia and parts of eastern Sierra Leone. The Gola language is part of the Southern branch of the West Atlantic language family; as of 1991, it is spoken by approximately 107,000 persons. Charles Taylor, who ruled Liberia between 1997 and 2003, was of mixed Gola and Americo-Liberian ancestry.

The Grand Gedeh Association

The Grand Gedeh Association
The Grand Gedeh Association in the Americas, Inc. is a nonprofit organization, founded in 1975, in Brooklyn, New York. During the more than twenty-five years of existence, the association has grown from just a New York-based organization to a national association, with nine chapters in more than fifteen states. The objectives of the association are, fostering peace among Grand Gedeans living in the United States and Canada, and mobilizing resources for the reconstruction of Grand Gedeh County, Liberia.
GRAND KRU

Kru
Grand Kru county was created in 1984/1985 by the merger of Sasstown Territory and Kru Coast Territory which had previously been part of Maryland County. Grand Kru County is located along the coast of south eastern Liberia bordered by Sinoe County to the northwest, River Gee County in the north east and Maryland County to the southeast. Barclayville is the county capital. The county is divided into four districts: Sasstown, Buah, Upper Kru Coast and Lower Kru Coast. The primary language is Grebo which is spoken in several significantly different dialects around the county with some areas identifying their language as Kru. Liberian English is the language of school instruction. A UN Mission in Liberia report issued in April 2005 estimates that 71,000 resident remain in the county. The area has few roads which partially explains the relatively low population density. In June 2005 the UN Integrated Regional Information Network reported that the roads in Grand Kru had decayed and become overgrown by dense bush, rendering them impassable, except on foot, and that the bridge across the Nu River at Barclaville had been destroyed. The primary industry is subsistence, largely slash and burn, farming. The most important crops are upland rice, cassava, palm nuts, and along the coast, fishing. Feed corn is grown at higher elevations farther inland. Sugar cane and several varieties of bananas grow in the wetland areas. Cash crops include coffee, cocoa and kola. Locally grown bamboo and piassava are widely used for construction, mats and baskets. Many tropical fruits, domestic and wild, grow in the region including oranges, limes, mangos, soursop, breadfruit and coconut. Poultry, cattle, sheep and goats are found in and around most villages. Most animals are of pygmy variety as larger varieties die quickly due to the heat and humidity. Prior to the civil war the region's extensive rain forests contained a wide variety of wildlife including wild pigs, bongo, dik-dik, pangolin, civet, pygmy hippo, African buffalo and colobus monkey all of which are hunted for food and hides. Also found are python, cassava snake, and very small populations of forest elephants and leopards.
