Reenactors come from four states on Memorial Day Weekend to participate in this event.
War correspondent Jared Fredrick of Altoona, PA amazes the little ones with his portable typewriter.
Captain Tom Gray of Altoona calls for attention to get the men gathered for the tactical demonstration.
The men form up in preparation for moving out.
The Germans man their defensive positions.
The Americans with their French Resistance fighter get hit as soon as they clear the treeline.
The tactical is always impressive. The museum grounds are perfect for a photographic interpretation of WWII in France.
Visitors to the tactical battle get an up-close-and-personal view of the action. The museum grounds offers an "ant-farm" view of the action where the crowd may actually feel the concussive shock of the small arms fire. This birds-eye view, along with a narration of action via loudspeaker, makes for an exceptional educational experience.
Medic Pete Michel of Jackson, NJ is one of the busiest interpreters in the field.
The tactical ends with the surrender of the Germans and then the party begins!
In the style of a 1940's Servicemans Canteen, we present "Letters from Home" an Andrews Sisters style tribute.
Erin and Serah of First-in-Flight Entertainment provide a spectacular show for young and old.
Erin and Serah never fail to draw a crowd and the show goes on, rain or shine.
Could this be considered fraternization?
