On this day in history ~

America lost one of its first, best friends,

Marechal Jean-Baptiste-Donatien de Vimeur de Rochambeau who passed quietly away while reading in his favorite armchair overlooking le Loir River that passes peacefully through his domain.

May 12

        Let us keep him in our hearts today as we recall his immense contribution to the birthing of the United States of America.
