It is along the march route taken by French commander Rochambeau's troops in 1781.
It's a 1600 foot section of the Ridgebury Road, and the defined property is about 50 feet wide, running from stone walls on either side. It is known with certainty to have been traversed by Rochambeau's army in 1781, and the current appearance in this section is much the same now as it was then.
It's one of multiple properties whose possible listing on the National Register was covered in a study.
