Military Living History Weekend is a combination of Civil War Days and current military conflict demonstrators. This weekend is a history-lover’s paradise at Discovery Park of America April 5-7, 2019. Once you set foot in the encampment on the Great Lawn, it is as if you have traveled back in time to the days during the Civil War as well as other military conflicts. In the encampment, you will meet interpreters in authentic period clothing, living as if they were back in the 1860s during the time of the Civil War in America. Venture to World War II and current military conflicts with weapon demonstrations and military vehicles on display.

This activity-filled weekend is a must-do for anyone, whether you are a history buff or not. We welcome friends from all over, especially near Nashville, Memphis, Clarksville, Jackson and Paducah to attend at least one if not all three days. Cannon firing, weapon demonstrations, a ladies’ tea and more are all scheduled for this great weekend.

Military Living History Weekend is free with your park admission. Members are free.
