Artist's Description

a country road and an old stone cottage

Rockingham State Historic Site, Kingston NJ

Rockingham Historic Site is owned by the State of New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, Division of Parks and Forestry, State Parks Service.

While the Continental Congress met in Princeton, Rockingham Historic Site served as General George Washington’s final Revolutionary War headquarters for almost three months in 1783. In November 1783 Washington received the long awaited news – the Treaty of Paris had been signed, and the thirteen colonies were indeed independent of Great Britain.

For eight years Washington had served his country in the American Revolution, and as one of his last official acts, at Rockingham wrote the Farewell Orders to the Armies of the United States, delivered to Newburgh, New York.
