Our Family Friendly Adventurous Film, "George Washington's Army and Me, Home is Worth Fighting For", is based on the popular Illustrated Children’s Book “George Washington’s Army And Me ” by renowned Author and Illustrator Michael Dooling .

GWArmyAndMe.com is raising funds to develop a film trailer, costs associated with a 3 day location scouting trip in June at the Reenactment of the Battle of Monmouth in New Jersey and to pay our marketing intern.  All funds raised over $3000 will be used for Pre-Production and Production expenses.

If you prefer to donate direct, we have Fiscal Sponsorship and can offer a tax exemption. We are also seeking major sponsors. Please contact us for details.

Synopsis: An impossible adventure begins when a young boy sneaks out of George Washington’s encampment to find his father, a soldier who does not return from the Battle of Monmouth. Will the game of draughts (checkers) save the young boy’s life and get him home?

As we shared earlier, 1000's of men, women and children followed the #RevolutionaryWar Armies. Here is a bit of info regarding the wives who followed their husbands:

"Soldiers’ wives had to prove their worth to the army. Both Continental and British army orders stipulated that they had to be of good character, and had to be productive. They had to pull their weight. With limited supplies and enough logistical and discipline challenges already, why would the armies do otherwise?"

There was never an official policy from British high command respecting wives accompanying the army, but many examples exist of orders from various times and locations. One, for example, stated that an officer had to make a “strict inquiry . . . into the morals of the Woman.” He was to determine “whether she is sufficiently known to be industrious, and able to earn her bread.”
