The National Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route Association
(W3R®-US) is providing this Speakers Bureau to provide access to
speakers on a wide variety of titles related to The 1781 Allied March
to Victory at Yorktown and French aid to the United States
during the U.S. War for Independence (1775-1783).
France provided the new United States of America with military equipment, new markets for exports, loans, cash grants, international political support, and armies and fleets sent to oppose the armies and fleets of Great Britain. A major factor in the U.S. winning independence was the French expeditionary force that arrived in Newport RI in 1780, marched with U.S. Continental Army troops to Yorktown VA, and there -- with the aid of a large French fleet -- beseiged and captured a large British Army. That surrender led Great Britain to agree to peace negotiations and ended large scale military actions in the U.S.
Many of the speakers are members of the W3R®-US or one of its affiliated organizations. In most cases there is no charge for these presentations. In some cases the speakers are academic historians or authors specializing in this topic area. Speaker fees may be required for those presentations.
