W3R-US Annual Meeting New Castle Delaware
April 27 & 28, 2018
The National Washington Rochambeau Revolutionary Route Association, Inc. (W3R-US) commemorates the alliance between the French and Continental armies during the American Revolution and the hundreds of miles traveled to the victorious Siege of Yorktown.
I attended their annual meeting at the Old Courthouse in New Castle, Delaware and presented on my Eagle Scout Project and my current internship project funded by a grant from the National Park Service and The Partnership for the National Trails Systems.
My internship project involves performing research on the routes taken by the French and American armies, throughout the state of New Jersey, to the Battle of Yorktown. An interactive app is planned which will allow navigation of these routes through New Jersey while also providing historical context and information on specific historical landmarks located along the routes.
At the moment, I am working with historian Dr. Robert Selig, who has served as project historian for the Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route since 1997.
Stay tuned for further updates on my internship project which I will post to this website.
