Washington-Rochambeau National Historic Trail

General Washington's continental army and General Rochambeau's French army teamed up in 1781 to fight against the British Army in Yorktown, VA. Together with the French Navy, these allies marched hundreds of miles and were one of the largest troop movements during the American Revolution. With the efforts and cooperation among the militaries, there was a victory at Yorktown, a huge step towards American Independence. The revolutionary route to victory, otherwise known as Washington-Rochambeau National Historic Trail, is a 680-mile collection of roads that the armies used during their 14-week movement from Newport to Yorktown through towns such as Boston, MA. The historic trail tells how French and American cooperation secured victory and independence for the United States.
