Welcome to the Lafayette Society's web page

The Lafayette Society promotes awareness of the many contributions to America’s freedom by the Marquis de Lafayette, the French hero of the American Revolutionary War. We honor his spirit of patriotism and generosity by encouraging these traits in the civic character of Fayetteville, North Carolina, the first city in the United States named for him.

Membership is open to all. We invite you to join us!
