Speaking of fountains, here is one more. This one in Lafayette Square, named for the guy who gave the speech two posts ago, the Marquis de Lafayette.

You might remember him as the French general who was one of the many reasons that The American Revolution was a success. He was a French Aristocrat, held high office during the French Revolution, was offered a dictatorship after Napoleon was ousted, became an American citizen and is buried in Paris under soil from George Washington’s grave. I’d say he’s famous enough to warrant a park in a beautiful city.
