Entry Description

The public can watch a World War I battle demonstration, highlighting military tactics used by German and Allied forces between 1914 and 1918, at Fort Harrison State Park, May 4.

The third annual event is sponsored by the Museum of 20th Century Warfare and the park staff. It will be outside regardless of weather.  

The event is part of various military demonstrations at Fort Harrison throughout the year. 

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

The World War I re-enactors are volunteers who dress in authentic or reproduction uniforms and use World War I-era equipment and weapons to drill, exercise and simulate combat. 

The event is free after the normal gate fee of $5 per in-state vehicle and $7 per out-of-state vehicle.

The Museum of 20th Century Warfare is in Building 711 in Fort Harrison State Park and is open Thursdays to Sundays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Visiting the museum is free. For more information, call (317) 591-0122.

Fort Harrison State Park is at 5753 Glenn Road, Indianapolis, 46216.
