Come with us as we explore the successes – and excesses – of the democratic experiment in France and the critical alliance between a nascent American republic and its French counterpart throwing off a monarchical past. Revel as Franklin must have reveled in the glittering salons of Paris as he slyly maneuvered French public opinion – and government policy – in support of America. Travel as Jefferson did, hoping to see not only the treasurers of antiquity but also how the French lived, what they ate, how they plowed their fields, and where they laid their heads at night. Nothing escaped his notice, and nothing will escape yours on this ten-day journey through France, America’s partner not only in revolution but also in defining what democracy would mean for all generations to come.
