About W3R-Virginia

From the Francis Scott Key Memorial Bridge in Arlington to the Battlefield at Yorktown, we invite you to ride, drive, bike, walk, run and boat the paths and waterways that led the allied French and American forces to victory and the eventual end of the Revolution. Many parts of the trail are now modern highways, but many parts are still pristine and appear much like they did in 1781. Many of the residences, businesses, taverns, courthouses, and churches remain today. Though all are not accessible to the public, they remain a testament to the building capabilities and fine workmanship that enabled the patriots to defeat the greatest army in the world.

Come along! Relive the revolution…if only for a moment!

W3R Virginia is a nonpartisan, nonprofit, all-volunteer, (501)(c)(3) organization, dating back to early 2000 and incorporated in the Commonwealth of Virginia in 2019. We commemorate the alliance between the French and Continental armies during the American Revolution and the hundreds of miles traveled to the victorious Siege of Yorktown. Our Mission is to promote, preserve, and commemorate the land and water routes of the allied forces through Virginia and the Chesapeake Bay, and to promote the goals of the National Historic Trail, the National Park Service, Commonwealth of Virginia, and other organizations with similar missions.
