Military Through the Ages
« on: November 15, 2015, 02:49:31 PM »
This is THE PREMIERE Living History event on the East Coast. Legio IX is honored to participate in MTA! Max turnout event please.

We arrive on Friday for set up (set up is not allowed on Saturday)

“Military Through the Ages” returns to Jamestown Settlement on March 19-20, 2016, when reenactors depicting soldiers throughout history come together for Jamestown Settlement’s time-honored “Military Through the Ages.”

This chronological display of military history has been held each year at Jamestown Settlement since 1984. This year’s timeline event featured depictions from 64 A.D. through modern times.

In the course of one weekend – from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday – visitors experience the past and present as reenactors show how uniforms, weapons and military tactics evolved throughout the centuries. The event also showcases a variety of military vehicles and equipment. Visitors interact with reenactors to learn how soldiers throughout time dressed and armed themselves, as well as how they were fed and housed in times of war.

Reenactors portray soldiers and military encounters from Roman times, the medieval period, Hundred Years’ War, War of the Roses, French and Indian War, American Revolution, War of 1812, and American Civil War. Reenactors depicting World Wars I and II, the Vietnam War and the Falklands War take visitors through the 20th century. The Virginia Army National Guard represents the present.
