The 1917. Here Come the Americans! exhibition aims to retrace this history through an exhibition of documents and original objects. They all demonstrate the longstanding solidarity of New World citizens towards a wounded France, true to the memory of Lafayette and his never-forgotten message of freedom from across the Atlantic. Endorsed by the 1914-1918 Centenary Mission, thanks to its dual memorial and historical dimensions, this exhibition has also received the support of the US Consulate in Bordeaux.
