Lafayette Day

In 1935, a law was enacted mandating the Governor of the Commonwealth to issue a proclamation on May 20 each year declaring that day to be Massachusetts Lafayette Day. May 20, 1834 was the date of Lafayette's death. One of the principal functions of the Massachusetts Lafayette Society is to conduct the Massachusetts Lafayette Day exercises each year to educate the public about General Lafayette and the role of France in the American Revolution.
