Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route NHT


The Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route was designated a National Historic Trail in 2009, and follows the rambling land and water routes taken by General George Washington's Continental Army and French soldiers led by General Jean-Baptiste de Rochambeau, starting in Newport, Rhode Island and ending in Yorktown, Virginia where British General Cornwallis surrendered. At this early stage, the Maryland segment t is primarily a driving route and includes army encampments at Head of the Elk River, Lower Ferry, Bushtown, White Marsh, Baltimore, Annapolis, Scot's House, Spurrier's Tavern, Snowden's Iron Works, Bladensburg, and Georgetown. There is an official National Park Service website http://www.nps.gov/waro/index.htm with links and a Facebook presence for highlighting NHT events, stories, maps and photos.
