6-7 October 2018, Over There 1918,  Austin, TX

Over There 1918
Public · Hosted by The Texas Military Forces Museum

The Texas Military Forces Museum
2200 W 35th St, Bldg 6, Austin, Texas 78703

On October 7, 1918, the newly created 36th Infantry Division entered combat for the first time as part of the French 4th Army, which was advancing on the left flank of the U.S. 1st Army during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive. Over the next 24 days the division would break the German lines near the village of St. Etienne and then pursue the enemy to Aisne River, where the 36th would smash a German bridgehead near Foret Farm. On October 6-7, 2018 the Texas Military Forces Museum will commemorate the centennial of the 36th Infantry Division’s combat debut on the Western Front with a special WWI battle reenactment. This event will allow visitors to see some of the most common weapons of the First World War in action including a fully restored and operational F17 tank, a French 75 mm artillery piece, a U.S. 3-inch field gun, an MG 08 “Maxim” machine gun, an Austrian Schwarzlose machine gun and a variety of rifles and other weapons. American, German and French troops using period equipment and wearing correct uniforms will demonstrate the tactics employed by the victorious Allied powers during the brutal final month of combat in the Great War. We invite you to join us as we recall the service and sacrifice of American doughboys in the “War to End All Wars.”
