The Beach and the Pole – The Execution of C. Cecil Dennis, Jr.

Wonderland1981 - The Wonderland Murders

Author’s Note

There is quite a bit of false information out on web sites, other blogs and discussion boards regarding the coup and the executions. Over the years, these inaccuracies have bothered me to the point of writing my own article or essay about the events of April, 1980 in Liberia. The information below is true and pieced together from trustworthy sources and interviews. My sources are firm, taken from former ministers and other eyewitness testimony which includes newspaper interviews, firsthand accounts of journalists and diplomats and also from depositions taken from witnesses at a few Truth and Reconciliation Council hearings.

I am not from Liberia, but I have always been fascinated with the country and hope to visit someday soon.

Thank you for reading.
God bless Liberia.
