The map below shows Philip's Route and his planned stops.

Washington's Route

In 1865, Washington Duke would have most likely traveled home from New Bern by following the route taken by the North Carolina Rail Road, which passed through Kinston, Goldsboro, Raleigh, and finally Durham on its way to Greensboro. 

Philip's Route

In the modern era Philip is bound to roads which follow a similar path to the rail road which cut across the state 150 years ago.
