Hero of Two Worlds is the thrilling story of the Marquis de Lafayette’s fifty year career as a revolutionary. A key figure at the heart of the Age of Revolution, he fought for freedom on both sides of the Atlantic. The Marquis de Lafayette’s political and military experience helped American revolutionaries secure the union from British oppression. Ever defiant in the face of kings and emperors, he helped to overthrow King Louis XVIII and sparred with Napoleon. From his American tour–with a notable stop in New Orleans–to his lasting presence at home in France, the Marquis de Lafayette continued to fight for the rights he held dear.
Duncan’s book spans the life of Lafayette, from enthusiastic youth to world-weary old age, and from the pinnacle of glory to the depths of despair. Mike Duncan’s remarkable book is the story of democracy in the new world and an inspiration to defend the ideals we hold dear.
Copies of Hero of Two Worlds will be available for purchase at the event.
