The Washington-Rochambeau National Historic Trail
Through Bridgewater Township N.J.
“March to Victory”
Did you know that in August of 1781 about 5,500 French Troops marched through Bridgewater on their way to defeat the British at the Battle of Yorktown? Here is their story and how our town played a part in the final major battle for America’s fight for independence.
Also feel free to use the links below to access more historical information of the Washington-Rochambeau National Historic Trail and the Battle of Yorktown.
March 2016 Update!!!: This month, the remaining road side signs were installed on Van Veghten Drive, Foothill Road, Steele Gap Road, and Tullo Road. Thank you to the Bridgewater Department of Public Works for your assistance. I am proud to say that the Washington-Rochambeau National Historic Trail in Bridgewater N.J. is now complete!
