"At a time when we're all searching for inspirational leaders, it is instructive to examine the qualities of former American heroes. Pershing's admirable traits are on display in Pershing's Paths of Glory. It's moving to see how the young people in this film are trying to learn from his legacy."

Pershing "did not dip bullets in pigs' blood!"
General John J. "Black Jack" Pershing's great accomplishments included his two postings to the Philippines where he became famous for the battles he avoided fighting, saving lives, and helping to forge a 40-year peace with the grateful Islamic Moro tribe, who named Pershing an honorary "Sultan." General Pershing's personal commitment was legendary - he even read the Islamic Koran holy book so he could better understand the Moro tribes and their faith.
