Seeing how late the French established foothold on its coast and how it was just next door to what is now Liberia OTL, it could've fallen to anyone nearby. British being the most likely, but what if Assinie(sp?) was instead overtaken by American Colonization Society (ACS) rather then by French ? Perhaps it needs a divergence before the said ACS was born, but for the sake of argument, let's say it happens. What will we get of it ? Do we see a Liberia with double size, or instead, we'll actually see two freed-slaves states formed next to each other ? Also, with weaker *Liberia instead of France colonizing the country, will we see the interior polities like Baoule and Kong/Wassoulou Kingdoms survive as at least semi-independent protectorates of the other powers ?
