Washington/Rochambeau Trail


The Washington Rochambeau Revolutionary Route is a National Historic Trail that commemorates the journey made by the Continental Army under the command of George Washington and allied French troops under the command of Jean-Baptiste de Rochambeau. During 1781 and 1782, the allied armies traveled 680 miles by land and by water to and from the victorious Siege of Yorktown.

Connecticut makes up one-fifth of the route, more than any other state, and is a testament to the critical role "The Provision State" played in the success of the march. You can experience this pivotal point in American history at the many historic properties and cultural attractions along the route.
