This event is called Reclaiming Our Heritage. https://forohmilwaukee.org/ and it was held a couple weeks ago. They have reenactments and veterans come from all over the US to participate. We were there bright and early on a Saturday morning and met so many wonderful people. Omar enjoyed the parade and seeing all the military vehicles. They were giving out flowers to veterans....and donuts. Ha! Guess there aren't food restrictions for all us vets who attend!
|Loved how even the dogs get involved!|
|Omar and Abdul waiting for the parade to start. Omar dressed in his civil war uniform we got at Gettysburg.|
|There were active duty soldiers on hand with trucks and equipment that kids could see up close|
|I learned that many of the buildings are being restored. The original site began after the civil war to house civil war veterans.|
