Revolutionary War Sites

In the 1700s, the York Road through Bucks County was the only road between Philadelphia and New York, hence its name. During the Revolution, the easiest way for the troops to traverse the area and cross the Delaware River was through the county. There are many places along the road and near it that were important during this time. The Continental army passed through at least twice, before the Christmas crossing and the Battle of Trenton in December 1776 and before the Battle of Monmouth in June 1778.
