”..This white horse, who played his part in history, was according to one faction a marvelous beast, who had cost 1500 louis and was the hero of miraculous tales...Be it as it may, Lafayette's horse was famous. The Parisians had christened him Jean Leblanc and professed for him a kind of superstitious reverence.”
Requested by my friend from Tumblr! Also because Jean Le Blanc was one of the most kick-butt horses in all history. Like he loved to be showered in affection and it's precious. Also he was really challenging to ride (he didn't take no crap from beginning peasants) from which I can soundly conclude that Lafayette had some incredible horsemanship skills with some fabulously toned thighs.
A side note about Laf's uniform because I try to pay attention to that stuff. A green and whitish feather was worn by all aid-de-camps to Washington.
