We encourage you to walk, hike, run, bike, drive, or paddle the same routes the American and French soldiers took in 1781 and 1782.

Walk down a historic street in Philadelphia, bike between encampment sites in Connecticut, paddle a canoe in the Chesapeake Bay, take a driving tour through Hudson River Valley - the opportunities are endless!
