July 11: A Talk with Marquis de Lafayette
Doors open for seating at 1:45 p.m.
The program will last 30 minutes followed by a Q&A with the Marquis.
Born into nobility and baptized Marie Joseph Paul Yves Roch Gilbert du Motier, the young Marquis de Lafayette sympathized with the colonies in British America. Defying the explicit orders of King Louis XVI, who did not wish to provoke Great Britain, the Marquis purchased a ship La Victoire and funded his own way to America, vowing to fight for Liberty.
