Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route

The Route to Victory

By 1780, the Americans found their War for Independence at a stalemate. France had previously provided America with supplies and money, but now French ground forces were sent to help turn the tide of the War. General Rochambeau and the French Army allied with General Washington and the Continental Army, journeying hundreds of miles to a victory at Yorktown and, ultimately, the War. - NPS
