Military Through the Ages

Saturday, July 27, and Sunday, July 28

Bandshell/Polo Field

10am to 4pm

Mark your calendars for Cantigny Park’s 3rd annual “Military through the Ages” timeline reenactment! Walk through history in our wide span of military encampments, ranging from ancient Rome to the American Revolution, the Civil War, the World Wars through the Vietnam War, and more. Visitors will not only be able to see how soldiers lived and fought throughout the history of civilization but also the progression of weapons, clothing, and technology that accompanied it.

Our encampments will be laid out in chronological order so you and your family can literally walk “through” time, guided by our friendly historians every step of the way.

Food offerings from Golden Eagle Hot Dogs, Mamie’s Toffee and Treats, Cupcakes for Courage, Kernel Dan’s Kettle Corn, and the Grumpy Gaucho will be available at the event.

Please ask Questions!

We like to talk about what we’re doing!
To the best of our ability and making allowances for space, we have tried to have the camps/displays in chronological order. Some units may have been inserted into available space and are out of sequence.
