Experience the "animated gratitude" and "unaffected homage of republicanism" surrounding General Lafayette's visit to Savannah in 1825. Visitors will be led through the candlelit historic house meeting characters living an event that "exceeded anything ever before witnessed in Savannah" with both lighthearted musings and expressions of a serious nature in addition to the news of the day and gossip. There will be a ball! The performance requires that guests be able to walk up and down stairs and maneuver in the candlelit rooms.
