-- Message from the President of the United States, transmitting a report of Secretary of State relating to the negotiations for the suppression of the Slave Trade: January 15, 1821, referred to the committee on so much of the President's message as relates to the Slave Trade. by United States. Department of State. President James Monroe (John Quincy Adams, Secretary of State). The contentious struggle bettween Federalists and Republicans was over and the slavery issue was defused with the Missouri Compromise (1820). James Monroe had been the U.S. Ambassador to Britain at the time of Chesapeake-Leopard affair. He had as a result become familiar with naval affairs. After Congress passed the Slave Trade Act (1819), Monroe ordered the small U,S. Navy "to seize all vessels navigated under our flag engaged in that trade." [Hagan, 93-94.] The Navy dispatched five ships to African waters (January 1820-August 1821). , beginning with the frigate Cyane. She was followed by the brig Hornet, frigate John Adams, and schooners Alligator and Shark, both fast 200-ton Baltimore clipper types, 86 feet long, mounting 12 guns, with crews of 70, which were well suited for running down slave ships. The numbers of Africans freed, however, were limited, primarily because of diplomatic reasons. Those freed from the slavers were transported to the American Colonization Society in what was to become Liberia. The American squadron was recalled in 1824 and did not return to West Africa until 1843.
