1781 - 1782

After crossing the Hudson,
Commander-in-chief of the
French army in America,
General Jean-Baptiste
Rochambeau, encamped here
with his 5000 troops en route
from Newport, R.I. to
Virginia. Joining with Gen.
Washington, the two armies
hurried to Yorktown and
forced the surrender of the
besieged British General
Cornwallis October 19, 1781.
This devastating blow proved
to be the final battle of the
American Revolution. A year
later the French troops returned
and Suffern's Tavern again
served as Rochambeau's
headquarters.
