Lafayette: The Lost Hero tells the exciting story of this neglected and controversial figure and his quest to bring democracy to America and France. He left home at the age of 19 to fight courageously for the independence of the United States, and went back in 1781 to fight in vain for democratic reform in France. But when he revisited the US for the fiftieth anniversary of our revolution, he was welcomed as an American hero. An Oren Jacoby film.

Lost Hero is No Exaggeration

By Jon the Exiguous

from North Little Rock, AR

Comments about PBS Lafayette: The Lost Hero DVD:

Lafayette played a critical role in the American Revolution. He became a vital trusted aide of George Washington, as well as a crucial go-between to represent the American cause to the court of Louis XVI. His principled beliefs played less well amid the violent passions of the French Revolution.

This video is entertaining, fast-moving and interesting enough for historical dilettantes, yet with enough subtlety and detail to interest viewers with a deeper level of knowledge.

Lafayette:

By Carol Kay

Comments about PBS Lafayette: The Lost Hero DVD:

This program aired again around the holidays in 2013 and I enjoyed it immensely. Wish there were more like this for TV viewing. PBS always does a great job with their historical content, unlike some "networks" that use way too much computer generated scenes that don't really tell the true story or end up confusing the issues. Well done.

THE PAST MIRRORS OUR FUTURE

By Sandy 501

from Texas

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS Lafayette: The Lost Hero DVD:

Lafayette was a man way before his time and had a deep appreciation and love of what America could become, even before we knew it ourselves. This should be taught and shared in American History Classes.

Excellent & Great Story of Am. Rev Hero

By Ms. A.

from Tiffin, OH

Verified Buyer

Comments about PBS Lafayette: The Lost Hero DVD:

The information of Lafayette's life is wonderfully presented. I showed it to teenagers and they said they liked it a lot. The narration kept their interest and later they remembered that he & his wife married very young and other facts. I highly recommend this DVD.

Great research, wonderful scene shots, and fascinating history. The U.S. should honor this man much more than it does. We owe him a lot.
