They’re On Their Way!

You may have noticed this sign on Old Colchester Rd. or Route 1:

It is posted along an Historical Trail called the Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route and stretches 680 miles from Newport, RI to Yorktown, VA. This year, reenactors are marching along the same trail, and camping at the same sites, as the soldiers did in 1781. They will be marching right past Colchester later this year! Follow their progress here : or look for them on facebook!
