Theme Song: My Country Tis Of The

Hello, my name is Marie Joseph Paul Yves Roche Gilbert du Motier, but you can call me Marquis de Lafayette. I know you do not know me but here is a little bit about myself. I was born on September 6, 1757 in France. Before my second birthday, my father died in a battle, and at age twelve my mother and grandfather died. At age fourteen, I went to the Royal ArmMy Country Tis of y, and when I was sixteen something spectacular happened, I got married to the most beautiful girl in the world.
Now I am nineteen and I am in the Revolutionary War with the Americans. I am trying to get them their independence from that country Britain. I hope we win so that they can feel how it is to be independent and free.
