A Forgotten Hero

Record #:
Charles Armand Tuffin, Marquis de la Rouerie, was made an American colonel in Philadelphia in 1777. He fought in many battles during the Revolutionary War and enlisted volunteers in North Carolina. He returned to France in 1784. He died of pneumonia and battle wounds received near Saint Malo, France on January 30, 1793. Recently published letters from George Washington and other leading figures of the time show the Marquis to have been well-respected and highly admired. \r\n
