Marquis de Lafayette visited all 24 states of the Union starting in 1824, a half-century after the Revolutionary War. Being able to see Lafayette allowed Americans to connect with the generation of Founding Fathers that was quickly passing into history.
After the storming of the Bastille, the next significant event of the French Revolution occurred on August 4, 1789. On that day, the National Constituent Assembly adopted 18 decrees or articles – The August Decrees – concerning the abolition of feudalism, other privileges of the nobility, and seigneurial rights.
