Biographical or historical data
Marie Joseph Paul Yves Roche Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de Lafayette was born in 1757. When Lafayette learned of the struggle of the Americans in their endeavor to secure their independence he resolved to come to the colonies to aid them in their efforts as a volunteer. He also persuaded several French officers to come with him and help the Americans fight for independence. When Lafayette returned home he was honored for his unusual service in America. He had done much to strengthen the ties of friendship between France and the United States. In 1824, he accepted an invitation to visit the United States and thus began a tour of the country rivaling the frenzy of audiences at music concerts today. He returned to France after his popular tour of the States, working in the political arena. He spent some $200,000 or more of his fortune in support of the colonies in the Revolution. He died in 1834. Source: Independence Hall Association. "Who Served Here: The Marquis de Lafayette". Philadelphia, PA, ushistory.org, c1999-2016.
