Reenactor Recruiting Days at USAHEC February 7th

This is a great opportunity for those folks looking to join a unit or develop and impression.

<span style="font-weight: bold">4th Annual Reenactor Recruitment Day at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center, Carlisle, Pennsylvania to Highlight All Periods of U.S. Army History</span>

Come learn about the exciting world of living history and reenactment at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC) in Carlisle, Pennsylvania! The Center is pleased to invite the public and living historians to attend the 4th Annual Reenactor Recruitment Day on Saturday, February 7, 2015 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM in the USAHEC Visitor and Education Center. The event will feature over thirty living history organizations representing impressions covering all eras of U.S. Army and world military history, from 16th century pikemen to Vietnam War-era grunts. The event serves as a “meet and greet” for reenactors to interact between their organizations and for the public to learn more about the historic periods each group represents. In addition, the Recruitment Day provides a great opportunity for reenactors to fill their ranks with history buffs.

Over two hundred reenactors will be on hand in their period attire to answer questions, talk about their upcoming events, discuss the finer points of reenacting, and show off their military accoutrements. A War of 1812-era team will display all of the equipment an American Soldier carried to battle against the British, and Civil War-era cavalrymen will show the kit their mounts carried on campaign. From 19th century artillery to Wehrmacht medics, the sheer diversity of periods represented is sure to entertain children and hard-core historians alike. Some organizations will perform live demonstrations of the manual of arms from their period, troop movements, and battlefield medical techniques.

The Fourth Annual Reenactor Recruitment Day is free and open to the public. The USAHEC’s main exhibit, “The Soldier Experience,” will be open, as will the bookstore and the Café Cumberland. Parking is free. For directions, general information, upcoming events, and the event flyer, please visit the USAHEC website at For questions, please call: 717-245-3972.
