Sponsored by: 9th Infantry Division
WWII Historical Reenactment Society

Each June, WWII is recreated in Dixon to commemorate the Second World War. This spectator event gives a glimpse of life on the front lines in France in 1944 through Living History by members of the World War II Historical Reenactment Society. You will be able to see first-hand the typical life of the American soldier, along with battle hardened German troops, and experience the sights and sounds of a WWII battle. Original American armored vehicles and rare examples of German equipment will be on display and operational during the weekend.
