My Dear General
"My Dear General: The Extraordinary Relationship between George Washington and the Marquis de Lafayette". By Jeffrey E. Finegan Sr. with illustrations by Preston Keith Hindmarch. ISBN: 978-0-9852819-6-0. Copyright 2016. Hardcover with 68 pages including bibliography.
Book Three of the "I Knew George Washington Series" is told from Lafayette's viewpoint and illustration with images of colonial landmarks and historic American manuscripts. "My Dear General" divulges to us the meteoric father and son relationship forged between Washington and the young and vibrant French aristocrat who traveled from France to fight in the American Revolution at the side of George Washington. The orphaned Lafayette finds fatherly qualities in the stately Virginian and the reverse is true for a childless George Washington. The camps of the Continental army and battlefields of the Revolutionary War are witness to the development of one of the most incredible relationships in history.
