The Art of the Historical Poster: The Washington-Rochambeau Route through Mercer County to Victory at Yorktown, 1781 - An Illustrated Virtual Talk
November 14, 2020 - 1 pm
The Trent House played a significant part in the movement of the French and Continental Armies to trap General Cornwallis and his British-Hessian army at Yorktown, Virginia in 1781.
What is the best way to tell this epic story about how the French & American Armies accomplished a 580-mile march to Yorktown, with Mercer County being the critical halfway point? Spoiler Alert: Historical Poster(s)!
Urbanologist David Bosted, a Trustee at the Trenton City Museum, will explain how the long march was accomplished, the role of Trenton and the Trent House, and why historical posters are the best way to tell the story.
