Then & NOW Military History Time Line Saturday & Sunday 24-25 OCTOBER 2015

10am to 4pm 

The "Then & NOW Military History Time Line Encampment/Bivouac" features reenactors from the 18th through 21st centuries.  It's the final living history event for the season and offers plenty of opportunity to talk to the participants about their hobby.  Always on a non-home game PSU football weekend,  the Time Line brings the past alive for a great back-to-school experience.

  The Time Line brings is an end-of-season reunion for the reenactors who volunteer at our site.  Several have been supporting living history for more than 15 years.        








We attract volunteers from three states. 








The weather can be glorious in the late fall.  The best time to show off the collections and gear.



We provide an opportunity for the next generation of reenactors. A local 505th Parachute Infantry attends this as well as our WWII Revisited bivouac.  



Everything "Airborne" can be discussed at their station.  





The 148th PA Infantry and 3rd PA Volunteers of Battery B with the wives in tow support the Time Line . 


James Watkins of State College, and Pete Michel of Jackson, NJ wear uniforms that represent a 99 year separation in history.  Watkins, an active duty reservist with the US Marines, displays the "battle rattle" of the Marine infantryman with digital pattern camouflage, kevlar helmet and Camelbac hydration system.  Michel, a historical interpreter and history teacher, wears the World War One Canadian Highlander uniform.  And yes, they did wear kilts in the trenches.
