Chautauqua Speaker- General John J. Pershing
Dates: Thursday, April 05, 2018 04:00pm

General John J. Pershing, played by Ron Edgerton, was Supreme Commander of the American Expeditionary Forces in World War I. More than any other man, John J. Pershing became the face of the U.S. Army in the early 20th century. He modeled what it meant to be a modern American military officer: dignified, direct, iron willed, decisive, tireless and determined.
