Rochambeau, speaking of NECKS!!!

Breakneck Hill, Middlebury, CT

While Rochambeau looks back on his  most terrible, miserable, sweaty, climb up BREAKNECK Hill in CT ON JUNE 27,1781, I, too, have the clarity of hindsight and find myself looking back upon July 14, 1789.

This day was the storming of the Bastille prison in Paris that led HEADLONG to the BEHEADING of Rochambeau’s King Louis 16 and his Queen, Marie Antoinette!!!  And to think we celebrate this day, July 14th, as leading to a good result in France!
