About Brother Lafayette

Chris' latest work catalogs the Marquis de Lafayette’s Masonic activities during his famous 1824-1825 American tour. Everywhere Lafayette visited, a tapestry of parades, banquets, concerts, and public honors unfolded, befitting the last surviving major general of the American Revolution. The country's Freemasons played a pivotal role and embraced Lafayette as a soldier, statesman, and fellow Mason. Ruli’s work examines the Marquis’ often misunderstood connection to the ancient fraternity and provides the most detailed account, through Masonic records, newspapers, letters, and diaries, of how American Freemasons extended a heartfelt welcome to a fellow brother of the Mystic Tie.
