The Washington-Rochambeau Trail

I don’t know how in the world I’ll write this up yet. In 1781 June some 5,500 men of the French Expeditionary Force (FEF) left Newport RI and marched via Providence and west through CT to New York to join the U.S Continentals and go south to Yorktown.

When the French came north in 1782 they retraced the route east through CT to Providence and then to Boston, where they embarked for the Caribbean Islands.

The mysterious “they” are working on a more coherent trail as I write. For now, here’s a picture I took on Route 10 in Farmington of a Rochambeau marker.
