ROCHAMBEAU, WASHINGTON’S IDEAL LIEUTENANT, A FRENCH GENERAL’S ROLE IN THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION

Step back in time and travel with Rochambeau as he rides through the night to the Palace of Versailles, answering a summons from King Louis XVI.

Sail with Rochambeau as he and his 42-ship convoy cross the Atlantic on an exhausting 70-day voyage to America.
Sit by his side as his carriage travels to meet with George Washington for their first face-to-face conference in Hartford, Connecticut. Enjoy the tension between the two generals as their strategy emerges.

Stand beside Rochambeau as he proudly watches his handsome French troops depart from Newport, Rhode Island, to begin their 200-mile march to join forces with Washington’s army above the Hudson.

Stand near him in Chester, Pennsylvania, as he watches an overjoyed Washington twirl his hat in the air on hearing that the long-awaited French navy under Admiral De Grasse had arrived in the Chesapeake. Ride at his side in the sweltering sun during the grueling trek from New York to Williamsburg, Virginia.

Listen in as he rallies his troops at the Battle of Yorktown. And observe how Cornwallis grudgingly surrenders his sword at the final battle of the American Revolution.

Bunker Hill Invasion

My first blog photo looks like Darth Vader invaded Bunker Hill!  It was a very cold and blustery day.  And I was determined not to miss this W3R event. My son-in-law drove me there and snapped this incredibly gorgeous shot just to prove that I made it!  Was it the shot that was heard around the world?  I think not!

I certainly was not dressed for that kind of frigid December weather. I wore my 18th century gown with multi petticoats, but too little avail, alas!!  In desperation, I wrapped my purple satin lined cloak around me to fight the icy wind. I noticed that General Prescott looked quite comfortable on his horse. Were you there too?
