Americans can celebrate the Fourth of July and bring its spirit anywhere in the world. ... But it is celebrated with more sentiment and fervor by Americans away from home in France than in any country, for Lafayette and Rochambeau equally with Washington made the Fourth of July possible. French aid, French armies and French gallantry joining with the American army saved liberty for the United States and the world.

- Chauncey M. Depew, speech at the Fourth of July banquet of the American Chamber of Commerce, Paris, France, July 4, 1914.
