Military Through the Ages

"Military Through the Ages"

 

One of our favorite weekend events in Jamestown Settlement, Military through the ages,  is coming this weekend!

Hundreds of re-enactors depicting armed forces from the first century A.D. to modern times will come together on Saturday and Sunday, March 18 and 19, 2017, for Jamestown Settlement’s “Military Through the Ages” event.

This display of military history features re-enactors showing how weapons, uniforms and military tactics evolved over time.
