World War I battle demonstration at state park

INDIANAPOLIS — The Museum of 20th Century Warfare and the staff at Fort Harrison State Park will host a World War I battle demonstration at The Trenches at noon and 2 p.m. Saturday, May 3, at Fort Harrison State Park. Another demonstration will be staged there on Sunday, May 4, at noon and 2 p.m.

The demonstration will highlight military tactics used by both German and Allied forces that fought against each other from 1914 to 1918. The event will be held outside regardless of the weather, just as the real battles were fought 100 ago.

Fort Harrison Military Reservation was a major training site for the U.S. Army from 1906 to 1996. Fort Harrison played a large role in readying soldiers for the Army for service during World War I.

There is no cost to attend the program, but the normal vehicle gate fee applies. Fort Harrison State Park is located at the corner of 59th and Post Road in greater Indianapolis. The Museum of 20th Century Warfare is located in Building 711 within the park and is open Thursdays to Sundays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There is no cost to visit the museum.

Information: contact the visitors center at (317) 591-0122.
