CLARMONT, NH (AP) – A new historical marker is reminiscent of Marquis de Laffet’s visit to Claremont during his 13-month “Farewell Tour” of 25 states between 1824 and 1825.
The French general fought in the Continental Army with the British colonists during the American Revolution.
The Eagle Times reports that he visited Claremont on June 27, 1825, along with several other New Hampshire and Vermont cities.
The marker unveiled last week is the third of its kind in New Hampshire. There are two others in Newport and Cornish; More is planned in Derry and Hopkinton.
