HISTORY LESSON: Thomas Jefferson was known for having spent a large part of his life in France and being fascinated by the culture, land, and people. He actually stayed with the Adams family during his sojourn in the country. Jefferson probably never actually met Lafayette, a soldier from France who fought in George Washington's army, but I guarantee you he would have been so Frenched-up if he had.

Washington, D.C., for the win! Sorry, I read your profile page, and I'm happy that there's another D.C. area person here! I can't wait to read more comics of yours!

And when the Constitution was written up, Jefferson was in France. I wonder why that was xD

Actually, Thomas Jefferson and Lafayette were quite good friends who met many, many times. When TJ served as ambassador to France, he stayed with Lafayette, they corresponded quite a bit (he actually wrote a sadsack letter to TJ when Hammy died, which basically amounted to, "I know you hated him, BUT HE WAS MY FWIEND.") And when Lafayette did his farewell tour of the United States, he visited Monticello.
