Marquis de Lafayette: A Life

ID : 1258   
« back to classes page
Most Americans know Lafayette from his five years in America during the American Revolution. However, he lived most of his 76 years in France and had a very different and controversial career from his career in America. This course will follow Lafayette across his early years, his American Revolution years, his French Revolution years (before, during, and after), and finally his retirement years. He lived a full and amazing life, and we will explore all of it.
