Living History

A Pacific Island assault in the middle of Fredericksburg, Texas? Yes!

An all volunteer group of men and women, under the direction of Marvin Schroeder, get together during select weekends and put on an educational and entertaining show. The show begins with information about and the firing of the weapons used by both the US and Japanese military. After the audience has been well informed about how both sides are armed, the tanks roll in for an island invasion on our beachhead at the Pacific Combat Zone. Rather than try to explain the excitement that ensues during the program, there are some teaser pictures and a calendar of remaining 2010 shows posted below.

Shows are held at the Pacific Combat Zone, 2 ½ blocks from the National Museum of the Pacific War. Tickets are sold at the gate and are $5 for adults and $3 for students.
