Fredericksburg Lafayette Bicentennial Events

As a part of the Commemoration, a series of lectures about Lafayette, his world, and his important military and diplomatic roles during the Revolution are offered. The lecturers are presented by noted authorities on their topics, many with publications in their areas of expertise.

All lectures are free and open to everyone.
