About W3R-Delaware

The Delaware 22 mile segment of the 700 mile W3R National Trail runs from Claymont, Delaware on the Pennsylvania Border, just south of Philadelphia, to Newark, Delaware on the Maryland border near the Chesapeake Bay. We have been a very active partner within the W3R-US family since 2002. Since that time we have conducted ceremonies and created Trail Signage along the Trail through such cities as Wilmington, Newport, Christiana, the Cooch’s Bridge Battlefield and Newark, Delaware. We entertained the extended Rochambeau family at the Cooch Home in 2015. In 2017, we requested and received an American flag that flew over General Lafayette’s grave in Paris. We display it in the Cooch’s Battlefield Museum in Pencader. In 2019, we honored the British Navy by locating and returning the battleflag of theHMS Sheffield (which was lost in the battle of the Falklands. The flag was accidently left at a University of Delaware Conference in Newark just prior to the Falklands battle!
