THE DOCUMENTARY

THE PERSHING PROJECT

The Pershing Rifles and Pacific Film Foundations bring to screen the personal story of General of the Armies John J. “Black Jack” Pershing, Commander-in-Chief of the American Expeditionary Forces (A.E.F.) in World War I, and the motivating factors and events that shaped his exceptional life and career.

 

With the approaching centennial of the United States’ involvement in World War I, the war to end all wars, the Pershing Project seeks to educate audiences on the unique life of General John J. “Black Jack” Pershing, one of the United States’ most accomplished, yet somewhat forgotten military commanders.
