“Battles on the Home Front” is a new program created by the Harrisonburg-Rockingham Sesquicentennial Committee to bring visitors to the Shenandoah Valley — specifically Harrisonburg and Rockingham County. This program highlights the historic Civil War sites in our area, and incorporates compelling stories, museums, interpretive centers, and a 2012 calendar of commemorative events, plus walking and driving tours!
The Committee had SIDECAR (a local design and marketing firm) develop two important marketing materials to use in promoting this program: a brochure describing “Battles on the Home Front,” and a map directing folks through a walking tour of Downtown Harrisonburg and a driving tour around Rockingham County.
Though this program will bring visitors to our area, it is also meant to educate local residents of the rich history of the Valley.
“The Harrisonburg-Rockingham Sesquicentennial Committee and partners have worked to engage local citizens and visitors of the unique and diverse stories in the Harrisonburg-
Rockingham County area,” says Cari Orebaugh.
The brochure and map are available at the Hardesty-Higgins House Visitor Center.
