Delaware Military Museum to Host Military Heritage Day

Saturday October 20, 2012

 

Mark your calendar for Delaware’s premier military gathering to honor our Military Heritage on Saturday October 20. Once again Delaware Military Heritage Day returns to the historic grounds of Fort Dupont in Delaware City.  Visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy military re-enactors from every era of Delaware military history, enjoy the music of the “Ship’s Company Shantymen” and view displays and exhibits of military importance, to name just a few of the activities scheduled.

 

The Delaware Military Heritage and Education Foundation will have displays of antique military vehicles, host seminar lectures by military historians and authors inside the museum building and demonstrations of military drill on the grounds. There will be activities for families and children and a silent auction. This event is designed to honor all our military veterans and to celebrate their gallant accomplishments.  We invite all uniformed military veterans to attend and we hope you will join us for this free event.

 

The Delaware Military Museum is at Fort DuPont State Park behind the flagpole at the head of the Parade Ground.  Fort DuPont is south of Delaware City on Route 9 at the northern end of the Reedy Point Bridge over the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal.
