Lafayette and the French Alliance
Here's another bit from the interview I did with Kevin Avard on "Gate City Chronicles." Here the topic is Lafayette's crucial role in keeping the French Alliance going! (If you can't see the video on your mobile device, go here.) What I didn't get around to saying was that he also went back to France during the Revolution to help get more support. When he sailed back to America in L'Hermione in 1780, he brought the news that French troops and ships were on the way!
