Rockingham

Rockingham, also know as the Berrien Mansion, served as headquarters in 1783 for General George Washington as he wrote his farewell address to the Continental Armies. The General and Mrs. Washington lived at Rockingham while the Continental Congress met in nearby Princeton.

The Practitioners were invited to prepare music for a new interpretive film of this historicsite. The film, produced by the Rockingham Association in conjunction with Visionary Films, Inc., was released in the Spring of 2010. The plan is for the half-hour film to be shown on a continuing basis at the new visitors’ center. This DVD, “Rockingham: the Road to Peace” has won a 2010 Telly Award for History/Biography/Documentary. The Telly Award honors the finest video and film productions, as well as outstanding local, regional, and cable television programs.
