Routes of Specific Elements[B] The U.S. Continental artillery and troops traveled from Elkton MD to Williamsburg VA in row galleys that they had moved overland from Christiana DE by attaching wheels to the galleys. The French transport ships were delayed in getting to Elkton, so the French marched on.
[C1] The French Expeditionary Force rested for three days in Baltimore, where some of them boarded transports for the trip to Williamsburg VA. The remainder went south to Annapolis and there boarded transports at Annapolis for the trip to Williamsburg VA.
