Join us for the popular World War II weekend!

On April 25, Fort Miles will be hosting the 11th annual World War II weekend. Every year the event gets bigger and, with the hope of good weather, this year will be no different. There will be American living historians who represent the 261st Coastal Artillery unit that was stationed here at Fort Miles and German living historians who will show both infantry and kriegsmarine displays.

Visitors will also enjoy artillery demonstrations, period vehicles, live music, kids' games, guest speakers and small-arms demonstrations throughout the day. In addition volunteers from Fort Miles Historical Association will be manning Battery 519.

To make April 25 happen, it takes about 100 staff and volunteers. We can always use a few more hands. To volunteer, contact Shawn Heacock.
