Abstract:

The collection consists of two main parts, Rochambeau Papers, which contain Correspondence and Other Papers, and the Cartographic Archive. The correspondence, documents, and memoirs richly document the comte de Rochambeau's role as commander of the French troops in the American Revolution (as do field maps included in the Cartographic Archive). The Cartographic Archive consists of atlases and maps collected by three generations of the Rochambeau Family, from the reign of Louis XIV through the wars of the French Revolution and the Empire.

Almost all of the correspondence is addressed to the comte de Rochambeau at his headquarters during the American Revolution. Principal correspondents include George Washington, the marquis de Lafayette, Admiral de Grasse, the chevalier de La Luzerne, and the marquis de Ségur. The correspondence concerns the planning and execution of military campaigns, the treason of Benedict Arnold, the mutiny of the Pennsylvania line of the Army, the financing of the French campaign, and relations between the United States and France. The documents include papers from the Wethersfield, Newport, Dobbs Ferry, and Philadelphia Conferences. The manuscript of the comte de Rochambeau's autobiography is also present.

The Cartographic Archive contains 565 maps and atlases of Europe, America, the West Indies, and Russia collected by the Rochambeaus. The archive is especially noteworthy for containing Rochambeau's field maps from the American Revolution. These include a manuscript atlas of French encampments on its march to Yorktown, drawn and colored by Louis-Alexandre and Charles-Louis Berthier. Other mapmakers represented include: Le Rouge, Johann Baptist Homann and his heirs, Eugène Henry Friex, Georges Friex, Alexis Hubert Jaillot, Pierre Gosse, Jr., Daniel Pinet, Matthaeus Seutter, Joshua Fry, Peter Jefferson, Bernard Roman, Cassini, Santini and Dezauche.
