En Route to Victory! Washington's homecoming with his French alliés

1,164 views September 10, 2021
Join Dr. Iris De Rode live from Paris as she reflects on the 240 anniversary of Washington’s only visit home to Mount Vernon during the entire Revolutionary War, when the American and French Armies joined forces and marched to Yorktown and -- ultimately -- victory. During his stopover at Mount Vernon, he invited the French General Rochambeau and his Major General Chastellux to join him. At their "princely dinner," the gentlemen discussed not only the last details of their Yorktown campaign, but also their belief in the promises of the American Revolution and the future of the French-American relations. Presented in partnership with the National Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route Association
