The NSDAR in France – Monuments & Landmarks (download)

Lafayette's tombBecause of the close, historical ties between the United States and France, going back to the American War of Independence (1775-1783), there are many landmarks in France celebrating French American friendship – and many excellent guides covering them.

Some of these monuments have a special meaning for the members of NSDAR, who have been present in France for over a century.

Other landmarks have been “adopted” by the Rochambeau Chapter, NSDAR, since its creation in 1934, as places where its members gather to pay tribute to the long-lasting French American friendship which unites them in their common heritage and unique bi-cultural tradition.

This guide to NSDAR monuments and landmarks in France is presented by the Rochambeau Chapter, NSDAR, as part of its “Open Hospitality” initiative to promote bi-cultural exchanges between its members, associate members, and other NSDAR members, direct descendants of French or American Patriot ancestors who fought for the cause of American independence.
