Military Living History Weekend

Military Living History Weekend

World War I. World War II. Korean. Vietnam. Gulf War. These are all wars that made history, and that today’s society sometimes forgets.

Reenactors will have encampments set up, and firing demonstrations will take place on the Great Lawn all weekend long. Don’t miss out on Living Military History Days at Discovery Park of America!
