The American Revolution marked the beginning of an age of democratic revolutions that swept over France and challenged the old order throughout the Atlantic world. French officers who served in the American War of Independence, whether as idealistic volunteers or resolute soldiers of their king, were caught up in the turmoil of their generation. Their journals, memoirs and portraits, brought together in an exhibition drawn largely from the collections of the Institute, reflect their impressions of Revolutionary America and their memories of service to king and country and to the cause of American independence.
