Make ready! Hundreds of re-enactors depicting armed forces from the first century A.D. to modern times will come together on March 19 and 20 for Jamestown Settlement's time-honored "Military Through the Ages" event. This chronological display of military history has been held each year since 1984 at Jamestown Settlement history museum.

Re-enactment groups depicting centuries of military history join forces with modern-day veterans and active units to demonstrate camp life, tactics and weaponry. Weekend programs show how soldiers throughout time were attired and armed, as well as how they were fed and sheltered in times of war. The event also features mock skirmishes, tactical demonstrations, and a variety of military vehicles and equipment.

Highlights include artillery demonstrations on Saturday and Sunday, a children's parade on Saturday and military pass-in-review on Sunday.
