for the World War II History Center.

As reenactors, we participate in four different types of events:
Private Training
Training is put on about once a month in the off-seasons by the units of the WWII Reenacting Corps.  Its purpose is to teach reenactors basic tactics,  mannerisms, and to keep the unit active in the time between major events.  These are not public events.
Public Displays
Public displays are events in which we display our uniforms and equipment for public viewing.  Some examples of venues we do public displays at include gun shows, military shows and air shows.  At public displays, you may see our reenactors wearing other WWII impressions other than the units to which they belong.
Public Battles
Public battles are staged battles for public viewing.  Usually, these battles are well planned out and the Germans always lose. These battles usually include a weapons demonstration and a uniform and gear explanation.
Private Tactical Events
Tacticals are real-time events held between reenacting units.  There are usually objectives to complete while tactics and strategy are used to try and out-smart the enemy.  These are not public events.

For corrections or updates, please contact us.

Description: This event is put on to provide the military community and the general public a glimpse at historical sights, sounds and smells of the frontier army and to learn about American military history.  This is a big event for the WWII Reenacting Corps and the WWII History Center in that we’ll be getting major exposure with Fort Riley.  I believe that Germans will be allowed this year, so long as the focus is on they being the opposition to the Big Red 1 on Normandy.  More details as the date drawn near...
