    About the AFL

    The American Friends of Lafayette is an organization aware of the ideals of this great French visionary leader, the inspirational quality of his remarkable career, his contributions to our own struggle for liberty, and his ceaseless efforts to forge an eternal bond of friendship between the United States and France.

    The goal of The American Friends of Lafayette is to foster and promote this traditional friendship by way of continual research into the history that began with the American War for Independence and includes any documents and discoveries past and present that shed more light on the life of the Marquis.

    Members assist in reaching our goals by attending annual meetings, hosting lectures, donating books, erecting statues, attending the annual Yorktown Victory Celebration and related events and much more.

    The Gazette is published twice per year.  It is a scholarly publication, with lighthearted articles sprinkled in as well.   Amazingly enough, the Gazette routinely surpasses 100 pages in size.
