George Washington
Where You Are Standing
On September 20, 1780
Waits General George Washington,
Commander-in-Chief of the American Armies
During the American Colonies' Revolution
Against Great Britain.
He has come with Governor Trumbull and
Connecticut's Patriots to greet the French Armies
under Rochambeau, Admiral de Tirney,
de Grasse and La Fayette.
The two armies form an alliance
that will bring about an independent
United States of America.
This place marks the beginning of
the Rochambeau Trail that leads to
the defeat of the dreaded British General,
Lord Cornwallis at Yorktown.
