Well, arriving at Midway Village Museum for Word War II Days was a lot like stepping back into the 1940's. There were over 1200 reenacters, each depicting different roles of life during the second world war. You could stroll the streets and see soldiers from various armies, nurses, Rosie the Riveters, as well as countless artifacts from the time period. We witnessed battles in the streets, walked through troop encampments in the woods, got up close to antique military vehicles and artifacts, and watched two battles unfold on a field--complete with tanks, military vehicles, and pyrotechnics. It was a lot of fun and something we would like to go back to.
