1781
This memorial was erected by
the citizens of Coventry to pay
tribute to the valor of General
Rochambeau and the soldiers of
his French Army who fought for
American Independence. Seven of
those courageous soldiers died
while on march through Coventry
and were buried near the Great Pond,
at the foot of Springdale Avenue.

The decisive intervention of
the French Navy, under Admiral
De Grasse, drove the British Navy
from Chesapeake Bay and trapped
The British forces at Yorktown,
Virginia. Their surrender to
General George Washington and
General Rochambeau on
October 19, 1781, ended the
American Revolutionary War.

This monument was made possible in 1998
by citizens and students of several of the
Thirteen original States, and by the CT.
Society of Sons of the American Revolution,
The Ct Daughters of the American Revolution,
The Society of the Cincinnati in the state of
Connecticut, and the American Society
of Le Souvnir Francais.
