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.
