We sail aboard the French frigates to Newport; march with Rochambeau's men from Narragansett Bay to the capes of Virginia and Yorktown; see life in the colonies through the eyes of such distinguished visitors as Lafayette, de Grasse, Berthier, and Bougainville. Interspersed are intimate glimpses of Washington in the field, visits to Jefferson at Monitcello, and an account of the subsequent careers of the men who helped us win independence."
