March-out of the Continental Army


March-out of the Continental Army

May 31, 2019

Walk in the footsteps of the Continental Army along the historic trace road used as they departed Valley Forge in June of 1778 in pursuit of the British Army.

Along the way interpreters in eighteenth-century dress will explain the events at Valley Forge that allowed the army to turn things around and successfully engage the British. Visitors who choose to pack a lunch have the option to enjoy it at the picnic area following the program.

March begins at 10:00 am at Artillery Park (Tour Stop #7), and ends at approximately 11:30 am at Varnum’s Picnic Area.

Sturdy footwear should be worn, as the historic road is unpaved and uneven in spots. Please bring plenty of water as there are no water fountains between stops. Participants will have to walk back to their vehicles at the conclusion of the program.

This is a rain or shine event, but may be cancelled in the case of extremely heavy rain or dangerous conditions.
