Money, materials, manpower and enthusiasm
was all he brought.

Washington was attempting to discourage aristocratic ‘adventurers’ from meddling in the guerilla war then underway in North America. Lafayette's arrival was not welcomed at first. In time, Lafayette’s relationship with Washington developed into a lifetime bonding of a father and son.

Lafayette proved himself a courageous soldier and a hero to the men fighting under him. He want ed the opportunity to engage the British in combat and never minded the fame and limelight that came with his victories.

He also returned to France several times to generate further support for the American cause. After the war was over, he returned to the United States to national acclaim and to see his beloved friend at Mount Vernon.
