Virtual Lecture – Brave Soldier of Fame: Lafayette in Annapolis

Date: Tuesday, February 28, 2023

Location: Zoom Virtual Lecture

Time: 7:00 pm (EST)

We are pleased to welcome back historian Glenn Campbell for a special virtual lecture!

Lafayette’s time in Annapolis totaled less than a fortnight spread out over five decades, but that was enough for the French nobleman and the city to develop a mutual admiration for one another. The first two times he came to Maryland’s capital in 1777 and 1781, he arrived on a mission; the last two visits in 1784 and 1824 were for pleasure. Former HA Senior Historian Glenn E. Campbell talks about the long and warm relationship between Annapolis and America’s favorite fighting Frenchman.    

Registration required.

Cost: $15 per household for General Admission; $10 per household for HA Members, Military, and HA Docents
