Second Saturday Lecture Series: The Marquis de Lafayette
Please note, this event has expired.
Saturdays just got more interesting! The York County Heritage Trust’s Lecture Series offers a new topic every second Saturday of the month
Gene Pisasale, historic author and lecturer for the Delaware Humanities Forum, will highlight the Marquis de Lafayette’s role in the American Revolution. Pisasale will focus on Lafayette’s participation at the Battle of the Brandywine on September 11, 1777, and his ongoing support, both monetary and political during the conflict that Pisasale argues, earns Lafayette recognition as a “Founding Son” of the Revolutionary War. Lafayette is best remembered locally for his involvement in ending the alleged Conway Cabal at the General Horatio Gates House (now part of the Trust’s Colonial Complex) and his return visit to York in 1825.
