The combined French and American Armies were traveling to Yorktown, Virginia, for their final battle of the American War of Independence. Following their victory at Yorktown, the same French Army camped here on their return to France. The Cooch Farm now proudly sits along the 680 mile W3R-US National Historic Trail.
