Myths & Realities of the American Revolution - France’s true role in the American Revolution

Thursday 29 April 2021 from 17:30 to 18:30

Join us on Thu, Apr 29 at 5:30 p.m. to learn about the myths and realities of the American Revolution and the role of France in it.

This is the second in a series of Webinar presentations to discuss France’s role in the American Revolution to be presented by Randolph G. Flood, co-founder with Robert Sherretta of The Real American Revolution educational programming.

“French Aid to the American Revolution: The Key Players Who Made It Happen”

This talk explores the key individuals who played a major role in providing French aid to the Americans as they attempted to break away as independent colonies of Great Britain, long before French troops were ever committed to helping the Americans and before war was officially declared between the French and the British.

Commonly held “myths” will be addressed, such as Ben Franklin NOT being the first American to develop a relationship with France nor single-handedly gaining French support for the American Cause. Rather, the “true” behind-the-scenes players who orchestrated French involvement will be revealed and discussed.
