Pershing Family Remembrance Ceremony


Published on Sep 2, 2015

On August 27, 1915 a fire erupted in the Pershing family home at the Presidio of San Francisco.

Then Brigadier General John J. Pershing, commanding the 8th Infantry Brigade, had been deployed to the Mexican border in response to the Mexican Revolution and its impact on American national and economic interests.

The fire claimed the lives of Pershing's wife, Francis and his three daughters, Helen, Anne, and Mary. Only his son, Warren survived the blaze.

On August 27, 2015 the National Society of Pershing Rifles, together with the U.S. World War I Centennial Commission and World War I Historical Association, paid respects to the Pershing family by laying a wreath at the location their Presidio home once stood. Video footage was taken by the World War I Historical Association, who hosted the centennial event.
