“The happiness of America is intimately connected with the happiness of all mankind”

― Marquis De Lafayette

 

Marquis de Lafayette was a French military general who fought in the American Revolutionary War and was a key figure in the French Revolution. His military memoirs and correspondence have been recorded, published, and read profusely since the early 19th-century. This collection of French writings includes: letters, speeches, military tactics, events from his American tour, and more.

 

Several of Lafayette’s speeches recall his commitment to aid in the abolishment of slave trade, to give rights to non-white Americans, and seek alternatives to the death penalty. According to Sabin,

“The correspondence includes unpublished letters of all the distinguished Americans for more than half a century”
