Each July, Fort MacArthur Museum hosts "the west's largest continually running re-enactment and living history timeline event." I found some photos I took before I started this blog:
It showcases military activity from around the world across all time lines.
I have seen everything from cave men but they may have been costume visitors.
The largest contingent being the Civil War and WWII.
I didn't know Pirates are considered military.
There are re-enactments of specific battles, including firing cannons.
Then Roman Empire and those they conquered.
I like trying to capture still lifes without modern backgrounds.
I read they are cutting way back this year from two days to one plus limiting displays to US units from 1900s and eliminating battle re-enactments and enemy combatants in costume. No more American Revolutionary War or Civil War uniforms or weaponry. Doesn't sound like much fun.
