Key map of the route of march of Comte de Rochambeau's army from Providence, R.I., to Yorktown, Va., and the return march to Boston.
The yellow line from Providence to Head of Elk and Annapolis, Md., and down Chesapeake Bay to Williamsburg and Yorktown (camps 1-40) shows the march south from June 10 to September 30, 1781. The green line from "Scott's House" southward to Williamsburg shows the route of the supply train, and the read line from Lebanon, Conn., to Philipsburg, N.Y., represnts the flanking march of Lauzun's Legion.
Camps on the return march follow the green line from Williamsburg to "Spurrier's Tavern" and continue along the yellow line to Boston. Camps along the red line from Princeton, N.J., to King's Ferry represent the flanking march of Lauzun's Legion on the return march.
