Inland from the seaport at Dumfries, the road came down through Dumfries and rose from a ford on Quantico Creek near the modern I-95 bridges before it entered what is today Prince William Forest Park. On the return march after the Battle of Yorktown, French troops camped in this vicinity. Fifer Thomas Cole was a nearby Revolutionary War veteran. He served as a free African American in the 1st Virginia State Line for at least six years before he was discharged in 1783. After the war many veterans chose to move south or west for a new life. Many started their journey on the King’s Highway.
