2024-25 marks the Bicentennial of Lafayette’s Farewell Tour. On that tour, this French General traveled 6,000 miles to visit 24 states over 13 months — but who was he? Why is he so beloved? Join Susan Joy, Ambassador from American Friends of Lafayette, as she shares the amazing account of Lafayette, who President Monroe invited to be the “Guest of the Nation”. This talk will be followed by a special “Francophile” Tour of the Bellamy-Ferriday House & Garden. Join us on Bastille Day as we celebrate all things French!
This program is part of the Talk & Tour Lecture Series, a monthly opportunity to see the Bellamy-Ferriday House & Garden from a new perspective with an expert lecture and specialty tour of the house. Register for other programs in the series here.
