Reenactor Recruitment Day is back at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC) for the 7th year running and will be bigger than ever before! Bring your family and friends to the USAHEC in Carlisle, Pennsylvania to experience military reenacting and living history up close and personal during Reenactor Recruitment Day on Saturday, February 10, 2018 from 10:00AM to 4:00PM in the USAHEC Visitor and Education Center. This free event is open to the public and is an annual favorite. This year, we have expanded the indoor display area to include even more reenactors from more eras! The event will feature dozens of different living history organizations and over four hundred reenactors from all periods of U.S. Army and world military history. Reenactor Recruitment Day is not only a great outing for kids and history aficionados alike, it also serves as an opportunity for reenactors to meet with members of other living history organizations, and to discuss living history with professional historians.

Reenactor Recruitment Day will feature hundreds of living historians representing militaries spanning from pike and swordsman to Civil War Cavalry. We will also feature adversary units, allied units, and highlight the doughboys from World War I. Each reenactor will be in period dress and have a table display, where they will be available to answer any questions, introduce their equipment and materials, discuss their upcoming activities, and highlight the importance of reenacting as a way to keep history alive. Come to the USAHEC to experience history, live!

The 7th Annual Reenactor Recruitment Day is free and open to the public, including children of all ages. Our exhibit galleries, including The Soldier Experience, and “Goodbye Broadway, Hello France,” will be open, as well as the Museum Store and Café Cumberland. Additionally, Café Cumberland will feature tasty lunch specials for this event. For more information, including directions and the event flyer, please visit the USAHEC website: For questions, please call: 717-245-3972.
