Alexander Hamilton to Visit WDS

The final battle of the American Revolution was planned by George Washington and French General Rochambeau at the home of Joseph Webb, in Wethersfield, Connecticut in May, 1781. Two months later, Alexander Hamilton led three battalions in that final battle, in Yorktown, Virginia, in conjunction with allied French troops, and forced the British surrender.
