Remembering Armistice Day
November 11, 2017 @ 10:00 am - December 11, 2017 @ 3:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00am, repeating until November 12, 2017
the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC) will be hosting a living history event entitled “Remembering Armistice Day” on Veterans Day weekend, November 11th and 12th, 2017. The event will commence at 10:00am and run until 3:00pm and will be located at the World War I Allied and German trenches on the USAHEC’s Army Heritage Trail. Among the day’s highlights include reenactors who will be illustrating the events as they unfolded for the 316th Infantry Regiment, AEF in the hours leading up to and the day following the Compiègne Armistice. Visitors are invited to come witness the life of an American Doughboy in the trenches and the end of the war for the 316th. The event will follow the unit’s daily wartime routine – patrolling, caring for those in the Aid Station, cooking for the troops, and maintaining the supply line to the front – and will then recognize the end of the war at 11:00am on Saturday. Visitors are welcome to attend at any time during event hours.
