Traveling Exhibit: “The Life and Legacy of the Marquis de Lafayette”

Suffolk Tourism is pleased to host the “The Life and Legacy of the Marquis De Lafayette,” an informational exhibit developed by The American Friends of Lafayette. On display at the Suffolk Visitor Center through March 15, 2024, the exhibit features six curated panels that convey integral stories of Lafayette’s life and legacy including his American Revolution participation, his critical role in cementing the Franco-American Alliance, and his lifelong passion for human rights. Lafayette’s return as “Guest of the Nation” in 1824-1825, and the efforts of the American Friends of Lafayette to commemorate this bicentennial in 2024-2025, is also highlighted.

This exhibit strives to make Lafayette’s story more accessible and relevant to today’s citizens while bringing focus to the ongoing Virginia American Revolution 250 Commemoration.

Find additional Lafayette and Virginia 250 American Revolution Commemoration information at www.lafayette200.org and www.va250.org , respectively.
