I visited the battlefield over Memorial Day 2013, and they had some pretty cool events going on. They did a demonstration of guns used in wars and conflicts throughout the history of the United States, complete with full period dress ranging from the Revolutionary War to The War on Terror. They also had tents and encampments set up demonstrating what soldiers have had to deal with over the years. It really was a great experience. I come from a family with a history of soldiering, and it was great to be able to kind of step in the shoes of what my Grandfather may have experienced in the South Pacific, and what others in my family have experienced.
