His full name was Marie-Joseph Paul Yves Roch Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de La Fayette, but he is known to history simply as Lafayette – a French aristocrat who was a military leader in the fight for liberty on two continents, and who was known not for embracing the elite but for supporting abolition and equality.

Aurelia Aubert, Ph.D. visiting assistant professor of history at Siena’s McCormick Center for the Study of the American Revolution, studies Lafayette from a historical perspective; her graduate school friend Lorna Bracewell, Ph.D. from a political one.
