‘MILITARY THROUGH THE AGES’ EVENT AT JAMESTOWN SETTLEMENT

PRESENTS CENTURIES OF MILITARY HISTORY IN ONE WEEKEND

In just one weekend, experience centuries of military history during Jamestown Settlement’s time-honored “Military Through the Ages” event on March 16 and 17. More than 400 military re-enactors show how uniforms, weapons and military tactics evolved through the centuries, from the first century all the way to modern-day soldiers with the Virginia Army National Guard. Comparative artillery-firing demonstrations will be presented at noon on Sunday, with weapons ranging from a 17th-century swivel gun to a modern-day howitzer. During a special program at noon on Saturday, discover how women have played a vital part in world conflicts throughout history with this year’s special salute to women’s roles in the military and their contributions during times of war.
