Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone was and has been inhabited for over 2,500 years. Starting in 1495, Sierra Leone was a capital slave trading point. Although it was doing good, people soon started dying away with disease and hostility of the indigenous people. In 1924 Sir Milton Margai attempted to isolate Sierra Leone into a solo nation. His brother Sir Albert Margai soon inherited the honor.

Sierra Leone affects the United States in many ways. A lot of people in the US adopt children from there, the United states also helps their army or armed forces, what they do have. Sierra Leone has a lot of rebellion of the citizens. Sierra Leone's population in 2009 was 6.4 million. English is the official language spoken and taught in schools but Krio is the most widely spoken language spoken throughout the nation. The predicted average age of people in Sierra Leone is 41 years old.
