Battle of Bushy Run

Based on C. M. Bomberger’s novel The Battle Of Bushy Run, this important saga has been brought to the big screen thanks to his son Col. A. Hess Bomberger II a decorated American WWII veteran, who was determined to bring his father’s book to life. He finally got to see the finished film before sadly passing away last year at the age of 101, making the feature all the more poignant.

EFG-Renascence Production’s principals Solomon J. LeFlore and Susan Gee are executive producers for the film and responsible for its worldwide sales and distribution.
