The American Heritage Museum wishes to thank ALL of our visitors to the 2021 Battle for the Airfield World War II Re-Enactment weekend for experiencing a fantastic weekend of living history with us here in Hudson/Stow, MA! It was one of the best event weekends we have had and we thank everyone for making it a safe and fun event after a challenging year for all of us.A special thank you goes out to our volunteer re-enactors from all over the region who share their time, collections, and knowledge with all of us. Their passion for keeping history alive is clearly evident through their dedication to accurately portraying veterans from World War II on both the Allied and Axis sides. Without their help, the Battle for the Airfield truly would not be possible. And last, but certainly not least, a well deserved thank you goes out to the volunteers and staff of the American Heritage Museum. Their tireless support in planning, setting up, staffing, and cleaning up after all of our special event weekends each season is truly incredible. Thank you for your dedication to our mission and being here to answer the call. Just like a tank cannot fight without the crew; the museum could not operate without our volunteers... We look forward to a wonderful 2022 season next year with lots of amazing special events here at the American Heritage Museum - we hope to see you ALL here again soon!Photos by John Collins. ...
