Lafayette’s World: Revolutionary Ideals and the Limits of Freedom Exhibit Opening

The Fredericksburg Area Museum is excited to announce the opening of the new special exhibition, Lafayette’s World: Revolutionary Ideal and the Limits of Freedom, opening March 1st, 2024. Curated by Dr. Gaila Sims, Curator of African American History and Special Projects.

In 1824, the Marquis de Lafayette visited the city of Fredericksburg as part of his multiyear Grand Tour of the United States. Lafayette was an extraordinary individual who made essential contributions to American history as a wealthy nobleman, revolutionary hero, military officer, enlightenment thinker, democratic supporter, and committed abolitionist. Lafayette’s World: Revolutionary Ideals and the Limits of Freedom celebrates the Marquis as an individual and the belief in freedom and democracy shared by those he fought alongside in the American Revolution.

The exhibit will open March 1st with a reception from 5:30-7PM, celebrating the
opening of the special exhibition, Lafayette’s World: Revolutionary Ideals and the
Limits of Freedom. Light refreshments will be provided, free and open to the public.
Lafayette’s World: Revolutionary Ideals and the Limits of Freedom is sponsored in part by
Virginia Humanities, in partnership with the Virginia American Revolution 250 Commission.
