Join our friends of Lafayette Alliance as they host fellow AFL member Paul Spalding, Professor Emeritus of Religion at Illinois College in Jacksonville, IL, while he discusses his book Lafayette: Prisoner of State.
His monograph is the first book-length study of the five-year captivity of Marie-Joseph Paul Yves Roch Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de Lafayette, by a coalition of Austrian and Prussian forces during the French Revolution, including international efforts to win his release. Paul S. Spalding constructs this original history of Lafayette’s imprisonment by drawing in part on extensive manuscript collections in America and Europe, some of which have only recently been made available to researchers.
Virtual webinar held on May 14, 2021 at 6:00 pm ET.
