Today is George Washington's birthday. This bas relief is in an out-of-the-way spot near a side door of the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford. It marks the location where General Washington met in 1780 with his French counterpart, comte de Rochambeau, to discuss strategy for fighting the British army. They had a reception at the home of Jeremiah Wadsworth on Main Street in Hartford, which is now the site of the Wadsworth Atheneum.
