INDIANAPOLIS (WANE) – The Museum of 20th Century Warfare at Fort Harrison State Park will host a “Soldiers Through Time” re-enactment event on May 1 and 2 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) said the event will feature exhibits, uniforms and weapons used in different eras of warfare, from ancient Greek weaponry to items used in Vietnam.

Parking for the event is in the Camp Glenn area near the museum and saddle barn. In the case of inclement weather, the re-enactors will display their items inside the recreation buildings located in Camp Glenn.

The program is a free event, but the normal DNR entrance fee applies.
