Rochambeau

Jean-Baptiste Donatien de Vimeur, comte de Rochambeau was a Marshal of France that participated in the American Revolution!  Rochambeau was given the rank of Lieutenant General, the command of 5,000 troops, and joined Washington’s forces during the siege of Yorktown.  On September 22, 1781, they hooked up with their homie Lafayette and forced the British comander Cornwallis to surrender.

Americans celebrate Rochambeau largely because of his behavior – he placed himself COMPLETELY under Washington’s command and handled his troops as part of the Continental Army.

Rochambeau had no sh*tty French attitude.

At Yorktown, Cornwallis tried to surrender to Rochambeau as a “f*ck you” to Washington.  Rochameau said “no way f*cker” and directed his punk ass to ol’ Georgie.
