A Family-Friendly Feature Film, Elijah and George is adapted from the popular Illustrated Children’s Book “George Washington’s Army And Me” by renowned Author and Illustrator Michael Dooling!

Based on Letters and Diaries from the Period, Elijah and George is an Adventurous at-times Humorous, Heartfelt Story about Family, Freedom and Home!

In our story the Revolutionary War is the back drop. This is a character driven film that follows eight-year-old Elijah’s seemingly impossible adventures as he follows his father, a farmer that joins the 6th Pennsylvania Regiment after the Loyalists storm his farmhouse.

The film is a work of Fiction. Historical elements from Valley Forge leading up to the Battle of Monmouth are intertwined and based on Facts from our exhaustive research and historical advisors.
