Friends of Hermione-Lafayette in America


hermioneLafayette College is proud to join as a strategic partner with the Friends of Hermione – Lafayette in America, a non-profit group created to support the journey to America in 2015 of a handcrafted replica of the Hermione, the 18th century frigate that brought the young Marquis de Lafayette and French troops back to General Washington in 1780.

Stopping at ports from Yorktown, Mount Vernon and Philadelphia to New York and Boston, Hermione’s itinerary reaffirms the historic relationship between the United States and France.

The Friends of Hermione- Lafayette in America will partner with many organizations in 2014 and 2015 to bring educational programs, musical performances, culinary delights and special events at each port.
