Best Answer

The Nova Scotians were the only mass group of African Americans

to immigrate to Sierra Leone under the auspices of the British;

it was decided that because of the attitude of the Nova Scotians

no other American blacks would be allowed to immigrate in large groups

to Sierra Leone.

Many Nova Scotian families were forced to sell their land because

of debt;

Many settlers immigrated back to the United States after

disagreements with the colonial government. Many of the

Jamaican Maroon settlers immigrated back to the Jamaica because they

wished to return to their homeland.
