Lafayette landed in America on June 13th, 1777.
He celebrated his 20th birthday at the Hale-Byrnes House on Sept. 6th, 1777.
Soon after, he participated in his first battle at the Battle of Brandywine (largest and longest single-day battle of the American Revolution) on Sept. 11th, 1777. Although being wounded in the leg early in the battle, he continued to calmly organize the retreat from the field.
