As the American Centennial of World War I approaches in 2018, the life of General John Joseph “Black Jack” Pershing, who led the American Expeditionary Forces to ultimate success, inspires everyone to learn about his legacy and its meaning today.
The makers of the documentary film, The Pershing Project (working title) are pleased and proud to present Pershing’s Journal, a daily historical snapshot of Pershing’s extraordinary life, as he lived it. We will see how he influenced American history and leadership in ways we are only now beginning to fully understand.
Our format will provide brief historical background, journal entries from General Pershing’s own writings, excerpts of biographies and historical works about Pershing’s life and times, intimate diary passages from the men and women Pershing led, regular reports from the filmmakers recording key milestones, and ultimately, moderated user content from interested participants. Like you.
