Old Fort MacArthur
Sponsored by Associated
the home page of the west's largest continually running
re-enactment and living history timeline event!
For more than
twenty years now the Fort MacArthur Museum has sponsored what
has turned into the west's largest multicultural celebration of
world military history. What began as a small gathering of
cannon enthusiasts has blossomed into a truly spectacular event
showcasing the history of military activity from around the
world and across time.
On Saturday and Sunday July 12-13, 2007, The Fort MacArthur
Museum in San Pedro, California is proud to present another of
its special annual themed fundraisers “Old Fort MacArthur Days”.
This event is Southern California’s longest running military
history events and is being sponsored by the Fort MacArthur
Museum Association and Associated Foundations Inc.
Visitors to the museum will have a chance to interact with
hundreds of living history performers representing time periods
from the days of the Roman Legions up through the Vietnam War.
Our guests can also visit the camp sites to see exhibits on
daily life, field craft, music, and other entertainments.
Special for this year is the recreation of the 110th Anniversary
of the Spanish-American War featuring Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough
Riders charge up the San Juan Heights.
Joining us again this year is our special celebrity guest, R.
Lee Ermey. Lee is a retired Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant, a
professional actor, and has been seen in dozens of feature
films, television shows and is the host of the “Mail Call”
television program on “The History Channel”.
The hours of this years show are 10:00am–4:00pm both days.
Tickets cost $10.00 per person and benefit the restoration,
