We have been to WWII Days 3 of the last 5 years plus WWI Days in 2017. For the historian living history & reenactments make for a most interesting way to enjoy the past. The displays & reenactors make the weekend terrific to experience.

This was my second time there and as always I had a good time wandering through the encampments and watching the battles. The Venue and parking are easy and efficient - worth the travel to get to
