»Robert Selig's webpage

An expert on the German and French influences on Colonial American history, Dr. Robert Selig has served as Historian to the National Park Service 9-state Washington-Rochambeau Route task force for the past five years.

Author of two books about Rochambeau's experience in Connecticut, Dr Selig is an expert on the French role in our War for Independence. He will kick-off Ridgefield's "March-to-Victory" Weekend with a spellbinding account of Rochambeau's march to Yorktown from a logistical perspective. Clad in the buff and scarlet uniform of a French Quartermaster General, Dr Selig will detail the day-to-day realities of the French army on the march and the impact on the rural Connecticut of 1781.
