Joachim du Perron, Comte de Revel shown in this 1786 portrait by Laurent-Bruno Francois Jourdain, was a French Army officer who served in seven naval battles during the Revolutionary War, as well as at the sieges of Yorktown (1781) and Gloucester (1782). Following the announcement of its alliance with the United States in 1778, France provided military support to the Americans throughout the later end of the Revolutionary War. The Franco-American victory at the Siege of Yorktown proved the enormous value of the French alliance.
