Join Executive Director Jack Warren for a discussion of a treasure from our library — the 1786 published edition of the marquis de Chastellux’s account of his travels in America, which offers remarkable insights into how European intellectuals imagined the natural world at the end of the eighteenth century and how they related those ideas to the American Revolution. Chastellux was a major general in the French army and the liaison between George Washington and General Rochambeau.
