On the road with “Black Jack Pershing: Love and War” at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.


We had a great screening of our documentary on WWI General John Pershing at the National Archives yesterday as Memorial Day weekend approaches and America honors the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military.

We screened the documentary in the National Archives McGowan theater to an audience that filled about two-thirds of the beautiful historic theater.

The audience asked great questions afterward about America’s important role in World War 1 and about General Pershing – Questions about Pershing’s life after the Great War, about the challenges facing America as a late entrant into the war, about Germany and the Allies attempts to employ code breakers to spy on each other’s troop positions, strategies, and movements in the war.

The audience members were very receptive to our award-winning documentary on Pershing’s life.

A very special thanks to our hosts, the National Archives, and the U.S. World War I Centennial Commission.


Historian, Pershing author, and good friend Mitch Yockelson helped moderate the audience discussion after the screening of the documentary. Mitch and I have worked together on past screenings of the Pershing documentary. Yockelson’s always a very knowledgeable delight to work with.
