Robert Selig on The Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route National Historic Trail in the District of Columbia

Mount Vernon, VA 22121 United States

The W3R is the story of the MOVEMENTS of Continental Army and of French forces from New York – and New England – to Yorktown and back between July 1780 and May 1783 and of the contributions of France as well as of many of the citizens of the United States to the victory at Yorktown on 19 October 1781. This talk will focus on the logistics behind the crossing of the Potomac by French forces in September 1781 and July 1782, and the French encampment along the intersection of P Street and 21st Street.

Partial funding for this program provided by The National Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route Association (www.W3R-US.org), trail partner to the Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route National Historic Trail.
