The Life of General John J. Pershing @ Golden Community Center
Apr 25 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

It seemed that Jack Pershing was doomed to be late for everything.  Born in Missouri in 1860, he came along too late to fight in the Civil War.  Posted to New Mexico territory after graduating from West Point, he arrived a month after Geronimo’s surrender.  But he had demonstrated uncommon leadership skills by organizing and drilling the award-winning Pershing Rifles at the University of Nebraska. Learn more about General Pershing’s life as portrayed by historical actor and University of Northern Colorado (UNC) Professor, Ron Edgerton.
