In the spring of 1781, Lafayette made an impromptu visit to Fredericksburg to meet Mary Washington and Betty Washington Lewis. This visit created a bond between the two that endured until Mary's death in 1789. Join Mary Washington House site manager, Michelle L. Hamilton on a special guided tour detailing the events surrounding Lafayette's visit in 1781.
