Encampment at Camp Morven: The Art of the American Revolution

$350 – $375

Marshal Jean-Baptiste Donatien de Vimeur, comte de Rochambeau, led the French expeditionary forces through Princeton in August 1781 to help the Continental Army capture Lord Cornwallis at Yorktown. Marching from Phillipsburg, NY, across New Jersey on separate routes, the allied forces united just north of Princeton, followed by the encampment of Rochambeau’s army of 5,000 men on the grounds of Morven on August 29-31, 1781.  To commemorate we will spend the week on the site of Rochambeau’s encampment focusing on the crafts and art forms being created during the Revolutionary War era – portraits, miniature portraits, pen and ink landscapes and doll-making, quilt-making, and basketry. Masters of this era like John Singleton Copley, Benjamin West, John Trumbull and Gilbert Stuart will all be explored. There is a monument to this encampment on the grounds of Trinity Church which we will also visit during that week.
