While most South Carolinians know who Lafayette was, the details of his life and his contributions to the cause of American liberty, both military and political, and his 1824-1825 tour of our country, including South Carolina, are not well known.
This presentation will not only touch on the above information but will also focus on Lafayette’s life and his connections to South Carolina as well as his lifelong dedication to protecting the rights of all individuals.
