PRESENTATION Toward Yorktown: The French & American Armies in Westchester County in the summer of 1781

May 8, 2021, 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM Location: 897 S Columbus Ave, Mt Vernon, NY 10550

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.
