An interesting piece of little known history - Thomas Jefferson, a close friend of Kosciuszko, admired his fur collared coat. Kosciuszko gave it to him. It is the coat that Jefferson is wearing in his sculpture. Visit the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, DC and admire another piece of Polish and American history.
#OnThisDay in 1817, Tadeusz Kościuszko passed away in Switzerland. From statues and bridges to street names throughout the country, the U.S. is particularly fond of the late 🇵🇱🇺🇸 general.
Pictured below is D.C.'s very own memorial to the Revolutionary War hero, located in Lafayette Square near the White House.
