Lafayette in the Somewhat United States by Sarah Vowell, 274 pages

Sarah Vowell makes history interesting.  I listened to this book, read by the author, with a few other people assisting along the way.

Ever wonder why there are so many places and institutions, including a St. Joseph high school, named Lafayette?  The Marquis de Lafayette, a young french man, was instrumental in the American Revolution.  This is the story of Lafayette and the American Revolution and the role France played in helping ensure America's independence from England.

Thumbs up, especially for the audio version!
