From the Publisher

From the Back Cover

In this 1895 biography of one of the key figures of the American Revolution, writer and diplomat Tower traces the career of the Marquis de La Fayette from his arrival in America in 1777 until his return to France after the surrender of Cornwallis in 1781. Using private letters as well as official documents from both private and governmental collections, Tower presents in detail the military operations of the Virginia campaign and delves into La Fayette's time at the Court of Versailles in 1779, when, on leave in France, he was a vocal proponent of the American fight for independence from England.

These two vital volumes are an insightful look at a period of American history during which the fledgling nation looked abroad for sustenance and succor.
