World War II Revisited over Memorial Day Weekend

The Pennsylvania Military Museum presents its 15th annual weekend dedicated to World War II memorabilia and reenactment. The weekend pays tribute to one of history’s most pivotal moments. The action takes place Memorial Day weekend, from Saturday, May 24, to Sunday, May 25, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days, rain or shine.

The World War II Revisited event takes place on the Military Museum’s ample outdoor grassy grounds, the perfect spot for viewers and participants to enjoy the live tactical battles. The museum’s website directs anyone interested in viewing reenactors portray “a small squad tactical demonstration against German opposition” to arrive by 1:00 p.m. each day. The reenacted military squads will bivouac, or set up realistic campgrounds, throughout the scene as well. All events are open to the public.

Get a bird’s eye view of the action with the members of the 28th Infantry Division (Recreated) as they reenact battle scenes with aplomb. These tactical displays really are the main event of the museum’s tribute to the “Greatest Generation.”

After the display, you won’t want to miss a different kind of reenactment—the Andrews Sisters make an appearance! Well, you won’t be able to tell the difference when Chelsea, Serah and Erin of First-in-Flight Entertainment bring to life one of the 1940’s most beloved singing and dancing acts. Last year’s performance garnered this review: “The girls do an excellent Andrews Sisters interpretation complete with tap dancing and cheesy humor.”
