In the early 1800s, Marquis de Lafayette, the French hero of the American Revolution and last surviving general of the Continental Army, traveled from France to embark on a triumphant farewell tour of the United States -- a nation he helped create. One of those tour stops was right here in Frankfort, Kentucky! On May 14, 1825, Kentucky welcomed Lafayette with festivities held at the Old State Capitol lawn at Liberty Hall, home of Kentucky Senator John Brown. Celebrating this event is Julien lcher, founder and president of The Lafayette Trail Inc. lcher presents the latest in his Follow The Frenchmen video series, documenting Lafayette's time in Frankfort and how the Bluegrass state cultivated their French connections and what it meant to early Kentuckians.

The video and related signage at Liberty Hall are sponsored by the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in the Commonwealth of Kentucky (NSCDA-KY), along with partners Liberty Hall Historic Site and the Kentucky Historical Society.

Join us after the presentation!

NSCDA-KY invites all attendees to the Orlando Brown House at 202 Wilkinson Street, Frankfort, for light refreshments. Registration for this event is at capacity. Please contact us at khseducation@ky.gov to be added to our waitlist.
