Pulaski (1748-1779) was a Polish nobleman who fought to defend Poland against European invaders such as Russia and Austria. He was excited by the fight for independence in America and went to Paris, where he met and received a letter of recommendation from Benjamin Franklin.

He fought beside Lafayette at the Battle of Brandywine and was commissioned a brigadier general in the cavalry. His horse was shot from under him while he was leading the charge against the British at the battle of Savannah, Georgia. He died of wounds received in that battle.
