Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route Study and Environmental Assessment October 2006
The study addresses the requirements of the Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route National Heritage Act of 2000. The Act directs the Secretary of the Interior to conduct a resource study of the 600-mile route taken by the armies of General George Washington and Count Rochambeau between Newport, Rhode Island, and Yorktown, Virginia, in 1781 and 1782, in order to:
(1) identify the full range of resources and historic themes associated with the route;
(2) identify alternatives for NPS involvement with preservation and interpretation of the route; and
(3) include cost estimates for any necessary acquisition, development, interpretation, operation, and maintenance associated with the alternatives identified.
It is the purpose of this study to provide the Secretary of the Interior with objective findings to support a recommendation to Congress.
