Videos on Rochambeau, Yorktown, and Washington
The Society of the Cincinnati has designed and funded several series of video presentations by historians with the goal of providing material that could be used by high school teachers. Several of these that deal with French aid to the American Revolution are linked below:
Dr. Julia Osman (Miss. State Univ.)
--- Revolutionary War Lecture II: Rochambeau and Lafayette [36 min]
--- Revolutionary War Lecture III: Victory at Yorktown [36 min]
Dr. William J. Fowler (Northeastern Univ.)
--- The Crucial Time After Yorktown [43 min]
Videos for YouthAllies fight battle on sea and land (10-min each):
PBS' Liberty's Kids #36: "Yorktown" -- Part 1 / Part 2
Videos from the History Channel
For the following videos there is a 30-sec commercial before the video starts.
-- Tenacity in the Struggle for Liberty
-- Storming the Last Redoubt at Yorktown
We hope that the History Channel will add videos noting the significant aid from France, such as
