What a wonderful audience at York College in York, Nebraska Monday night for the “Black Jack Pershing: Love and War” documentary screening. York College’s Mackey Center was a beautiful venue for the screening and featured two screens on which our audience could watch the award-winning documentary.
Thanks to history professor Tim McNeese, York College, and Humanities Nebraska for hosting my WWI documentary and discussion of General John J. Pershing’s life.
Some members of the audience, which numbered about 100, had fathers or grandfathers who served in the Great War and fought with the American Expeditionary Forces under General Pershing.
One woman told me her father served in France during WWI and helped document the war through films and photographs for the U.S. Army Signal Corps.
There were also several WWI artifacts one local collector shared with our audience.
I’m looking forward to our public screening of the documentary at the National Archives and Records Administration this Thursday at noon in Washington, D.C.
The free event will be hosted by the National Archives and Records Administration, the U.S.World War I Centennial Commission, and introduced by good friend and Pershing historian Mitch Yockelson. Click here for details.
