Taste of History

The Taste of History 2023

Over 2,500 people attended the first annual The Taste of History last weekend, and over 120 reenactors came from multiple states for this unique Military Living History Event!

Attendees had the opportunity to see impressions of reenactors and civilians from the Revolutionary War to the War on Terror, as well as sample authentic food from eight Field Kitchens, including:

  • Revolutionary War
  • Civil War
  • WWI Homefront
  • WWII German POW
  • WWII Homefront
  • Vietnam

Thank you to Military History Preservation Group (MHPG)! Thank you to over 120 reenactors who volunteered their time at this Military Living History event, many driving at a great distance from other states. Thank you to the planning committee and all the volunteers who made this event possible, in ways too many to list.
