|Living History / Re-Enactors
|The Second World War was the greatest armed conflict ever witnessed by mankind.
Thousands of young Americans would find themselves serving in far flung battlefields
around the world. It was these individuals, the American GI, who made the ultimate
sacrifice to rid the world of tyranny.
We are a group of individuals dedicated to preserving the history of these remarkable
men. By participating in living history displays and authentic battle re-enactment's, we
help to bring the story of the American soldier in WW2 to life in the present day.
Authenticity. This is the entire idea behind any living history group. In order to
create a "living history" you must take great pains to research and accumulate the items
needed to bring to life the time period you are representing.
Our unit goes to great lengths to accurately re-create the experience of the average
American foot soldier in the Second World War. From our authentic period camp and the
rations we eat in the field, to the clothing and equipment we wear on our backs, we
strive to be an exact living recreation of an American rifle platoon during the Second
