U.S. Army history on display in Cumberland County

U.S. Army Heritage Days were observed this weekend in Cumberland County.

The living history event was set up on the grounds of the U.S. Army War College to show almost every era of Army history.

The event helps preserve and tell the Army’s story through the generations.

John Giblin, Chief of research & Education Services says, “This is a great way to spend a family weekend, it’s free and open to the public, and it’s a great way to learn about U.S. Army history.”

One part of Army history that may surprise you is the important role of blacksmiths.

They were needed through the years in the military to make everything from horseshoes to weapons. Their work too was showcased at this weekend’s Heritage Days.
