    From Rochambeau to Edwards: 250 Years of Franco-Connecticut Friendship

    Christine Pittsley, Special Projects Director at the Connecticut State Library, will discuss the long-standing relationship Connecticut has had with the people of France. From the days of the American Revolution when comte de Rochambeau marched through our state and Admiral d’Estaing sailed our waters to the First World War when General Clarence Ransom Edwards lead the Yankee Division into battle on the Western Front, Connecticut has always had a soft spot for our friends across the pond. Pittsley will examine this friendship through the words of officers and soldiers, the monuments on our landscapes, and the continuing efforts to reinforce those bonds of friendship forged across time and battlefields.

    For those that might be interested, the Connecticut State Library is hosting the 102d Regiment & Yankee Division WWI Battlefield Tour 17-23 April 2023.  For information see the flyer.  102d Tour Flyer
