About the Event

Lafayette, a hero of the American Revolution was truly an American Idol in the 19th Century. The proof is 80 cities, towns and counties named for him as well as numerous streets, roads, parks and squares, colleges and Masonic Lodges, a mountain, a lake, and a river. Hoffman will explore the origins of Lafayette’s extraordinary reputation in America, emphasizing the Farewell Tour of America in 1824 – 1825, during which he visited 24 states and Washington City, as the last major general of the Continental Army. The visit to Boston in 1824 will exemplify the incredible reception that he received. Sponsored by a generous grant from the John and Mary Murphy Educational Foundation.
