Colonial Roads in America

If you're researching colonial America, Welcome to our group. My name is Carol, and I am the author and creator of Piedmont Trails. We have concentrated our research efforts on the colonial period in the British colonies of America for the past forty years. We analyze our findings and share our discoveries and sources with others. We regard the colonial roads as critical pieces of the puzzle that lead us to valuable information that is often overlooked. As the ships sailed for the colonies, we place our emphasis on the means of travel after their arrival. If you find this interesting, welcome to the group.
