He led a heroic fight for the colonization of Liberia, and on his arrival assumed leadership over a settlement full of disease, corruption and mismanagement. He helped his small bank of ailing settlers repulse an attack of 800 native savages. In 1824, the Rev. R. R. Gurley, secretary of the society, was sent to Liberia. He found Ashmun to be a superb leader and agent. Ashmun remained in that position until 1828. He sought, in vain, relief from his sickness in the West Indies. He died August 25, 1828. This is the prime source for Ashmun and his dream of Liberia.
