Thomas Jefferson and the Marquis de Lafayette enjoyed an extraordinary friendship. They met in 1781, when Lafayette was sent to Virginia to assist Jefferson in fighting off the British. Three years later, Jefferson moved to Paris as a diplomat and counseled Lafayette as he drafted The Declaration of the Rights of Man. In 1792, when Lafayette was shuffled among Austrian and Prussian prisons, Jefferson was key to securing his release. Years later, in 1824, the two had an emotional reunion at Monticello. A meticulously researched, fascinating account.
