"AMERICA'S FAVORITE FIGHTING FRENCHMAN" - MARQUIS DE LAFAYETTE IN FAYETTEVILLE

FAYETTEVILLE, NC – Fayetteville was the first U.S. city named for “America’s Favorite Fighting Frenchman,” (as Lafayette is recognized in the musical Hamilton)  and the only namesake city he visited. When Lafayette came back to America in 1824/25 he was welcomed in cities like New York, Philadelphia and Boston. Touched by a friend’s story of the first town in America named for him, Lafayette included Fayetteville on his tour.  Upon his March 4, 1825 arrival, Fayetteville rolled out the proverbial red carpet to welcome the famed nobleman and gentleman. In his speech of welcome, Judge Toomer proclaimed, “Never, never can we forget the youthful stranger who, in the darkest hour of adversity, so generously flew to our succor, and so gallantly fought the battle of freedom.”
