An Evening With... Marquis de Lafayette

Marquis de Lafayette"An Evening With... Marquis de Lafayette" will be held Thursday, July 15, and will feature General Lafayette, portrayed by Historical Interpreter Charles Wissinger. Born into nobility, the young Marquis de Lafayette sympathized with the colonies in British America. Lafayette was unlike many nobles in that he wanted to protect the rights of the common person. Finding the colonies wrongly oppressed, Lafayette longed to stand up for the  patriotic cause. Congress awarded the Marquis de Lafayette the rank of Major General to serve at General Washington’s side. Over time Washington gave more responsibility and trust to Lafayette along with the command of troops in the field, enabling Lafayette to save the army in many battles. Washington sent Lafayette  south to capture the traitor Benedict Arnold. Instead, he cornered and  helped capture General Cornwallis at Yorktown.
