New Jersey and the National Historic Trail

The Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route was designated a National Historic Trail by Congress (PL 111-11) and signed by President Obama in March 2009. It commemorates the 700 miles of land and water routes followed by the allied Continental and French armies between 1780-83 under their respective leaders generals Washington and Rochambeau through Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and what is now Washington D.C. This march led to the American-French victory over British forces under Lord Cornwallis at the siege of Yorktown, Virginia, and essentially ended the War for Independence. The National Historic Trail also includes the allied troops’ return march and water routes and related reconnaissance expeditions of the officers.

Locally W3R-NJ seeks to identify historic sites along New Jersey’s section of the National Historic Trail for marking, preservation, etc. consistent with our partners providing a rich environment for interpretation and education.
