Homage to Hamilton the Musical!

Young Lafayette had dinner with the Brit King’s Bro                                   Who told him the Americans were “good to go”.

When Lafayette learned of our fight for liberty                                                     A flame was set alight inside the young marquis.

Forbidden by the King as well as family                                                                   To risk his life and fortune quite so recklessly.

They sent him off to England just to change his mind                                      He met King George and Clinton and was wined and dined.

But Our Marquis, undaunted, and his mind unchanged                                     Came back to France and bought a boat as pre-arranged.

He met with Silas Deane, and was delighted when                                           He was offered a commission as a Major Gen.

Then when the King proclaimed him subject to arrest                                       He sneaked aboard his boat and headed to the west.
