Born into a wealthy family in Poland in 1747, Pulaski, fought for freedom from Russia in his homeland until 1771. In Paris he met Benjamin Franklin and agreed to help Americans fight for their independence. From 1777 until his death at age 32, Pulaski fought in the American Revolutionary War for the independence of the U.S.
