Philibert Francois Roussel De (blonsh'-lond') Blanchelande
BLANCHELANDE, Philibert Francois Roussel de (blonsh'-lond'), French soldier, born in Dijon, France, in 1735; died in Paris, 11 April 1793. He entered the army in 1747 and in 1'779 was sent to America, where he became Lieutenant-Colonel. He successfully defended the isle of St. Vincent against the English, for which service he was made a brigadier. He assisted at the taking of Tobago, and was made its governor in 1781. This office he afterward exchanged for that of Dominica, which he retained until his return to France at the epoch of the revolution. Later he was sent to St. Domingo as governor of the French part of that island; but showing a disposition to disregard the authority of the national assembly, he was taken to France, condemned, and executed.
