The French-American Cultural Foundation organized a day-long symposium on June 15, 2016 — Versailles and the American Revolution — in conjunction with the first-ever exhibit on this topic at the Château de Versailles from July 5th through October 2nd, 2016. Leading historians from American universities, authors, experts, and Versailles’ Chief Curator, Bertrand Rondot, discussed the importance of France’s strategic financial and military aid to the American colonies, without which the United States would not have gained its independence.
