There was a road called the Great Wagon Road or the Great Valley Road that stretched from New York to the Carolinas. It was called the Great Valley Road because it followed the Shenandoah Valley. In 1744, after a treaty was made with the Indians, it became the most heavily traveled road in Colonial America. During the period from 1745 to 1775, thousands of immigrants used this road. Many of them were Scotch-Irish families who had sailed from Ireland to Philadelphia or Alexandria.
