"Your King and Country Need You!" So said all the recruitment posters at the outbreak of the First World War and that message continued until war was over in November of 1918. This June, the Ingersoll Museum will be the site of a WW1 re-enactment, complete with enlistment office, basic training, a photo booth to take your portrait in uniform, cavalry exhibits, a sniper's nest, trench, casualty clearing station and so much more before the Battle for Hill 290.
Presented in partnership with the History Matters Association, this full-day event gives you the opportunity to learn more about the life of a soldier on the front lines of history.
For more information about the event, or learn how you can enlist as a volunteer, please contact the museum.
