Description

Dr. Eric Weiselberg, the award-winning principal historian of Revolutionary Westchester 250, explores the pivotal encampment of the American & French armies in Westchester County, NY, in the summer of 1781, that led to the decisive victory over the British at Yorktown a few months later.  This includes insightful profiles of the leading figures  -- General Washington and the Comte de Rochembeau  -- as well as the dramatic efforts to deceive the British about their strategic destination.  This is a distance presentation, through a shared platform.
