Sculptor Greg Marra wants to create a Revolutionary War Trail of statues throughout Bucks County, starting with the Marquis de Lafayette.
Ask just about any Revolutionary War buff, and they will probably agree that one of the major turning points in America's battle for independence came when the Marquis de Lafayette joined the fight against the British. General Lafayette's participation at the Battle of Brandywine, where he was wounded, and the Battle of Rhode Island strengthened the relationship between France and the colonies, leading to the 1778 Treaty of Alliance.

"He's definitely a hero," said Marra. "Anybody George Washington loved, we have to love, too…

French luncheon to honor General Lafayette's contributions to US independence.

Only 19 years old, Lafayette heard of the Americans' struggle for independence and from his homeland in France, began his journey with several French officers to accompany Washington to the Battle of Brandywine and to Valley Forge.
