Today we commemorate Lafayette's Farewell Tour specifically his stop at the Rider Tavern in Charlton. I'll be live blogging as time permits.
11:50 Earlier this morning was at Sturbridge Host with American Friends of Lafayette who are now at the Worcester Art Museum checking out its Lafayette collection. Evie and I hosted Julien Icher who is documenting the trail last night.
Arrived at Rider Tavern around 10:00 AM final arrangements with Frank Morrill. Chairs and podium in the militia field and weather looks promising.
Film crew started coming in a half an hour ago and are setting up.
Frank is back on the scene.
Evie reports AFL done at museum and heading to lunch
12:23 Flags are set. And Charlton Historical here in force
