A Heritage Costumes Exclusive.
The American Revolution pitted a group of 13 small colonies against the world’s biggest superpower, an entire empire with manpower, supplies, and strategy. What were the colonists to do in the face of such a force? The Continental Army was small and new, but the French Army was sizable, skilled, and well versed in the tactics used by the British. The French Army played a crucial role in the Revolutionary War, helping the colonists win their independence from British rule. One man, in particular, General Rochambeau, commanded his men to guide the colonists in their win against the British.
Born Marshal Jean-Baptiste Donatien de Vimeur, Comte de Rochambeau, General Rochambeau was a French nobleman who began his military service in a cavalry regiment as a young man. He served as commander in chief of the French Expeditionary Force, which left France with the specific goal of aiding the American Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. General Rochambeau brought 7,000 men to George Washington’s troops, and together the two armies sieged Yorktown and began winning battles. On September 22, 1781, General Rochambeau joined with Marquis de Lafayette’s troops and forced the British into surrender one month later.
An exclusive piece in our Heritage Costumes collection of quality costume clothing, this children’s General Rochambeau uniform costume is authentic to the 1700s and the attire worn by the French nobleman himself during the Revolutionary War. To capture Rochambeau’ colonial uniform accurately, this costume includes a Revolutionary War frock coat (a colonial military jacket) with contrasting yellow trim & tail, a military vest with an attached dickey, a lace jabot, and a pair of colonial military breeches. You’ll look the part of a French soldier in the Revolutionary War with this costume set straight out of the 18th century.
Of course, every French general wartime costume needs a few accessories, too. No French soldier during the 18th century took to America’s battlefields without his tricorner hat, tall black boot spats, colonial wig, and military sword. If you’d like to enhance your General Rochambeau colonial uniform with our Heritage Costume accessories (which are not included with the purchase of this costume), you can pair this costume outfit with these options from our wide selection of added details to create your very own personalized costume.
