Military through the Ages
March 17 - March 18
Hundreds of re-enactors join with the Virginia Army National Guard to present centuries of military history in one weekend. Re-enactors demonstrate a variety of weapons and military tactics, field communication and medical treatment. Visitors are encouraged to interact with re-enactors to learn how soldiers from different time periods dressed and armed themselves, as well as how they were fed and sheltered in times of war. A children’s parade will be held at noon Saturday, followed by a military pass-in-review at 3 p.m. Sunday.
