The met at the home of Jeremiah Wadsworth, now the Wadsworth Atheneum Art Museum. Below is the plaque that tells the story.
The proper dates were:
- Arrival on September 20, 1781
- Departure on September 23, 1781.
The meetings resulted in a decision for Rochambeau and his men to stay put over the winter in Newport, RI and in Lebanon, Ct. Beyond that, Admiral de Ternay would seek more ships and Rochambeau would seek more men while the French remained on the defensive in Newport looking out for a possible British attack. Their next move would be centered around New York, the British head of operations in the North.
The plaque is attached to the exterior of the building, on the left side as you face the front entrance.
