Liberation of New Oxford - WW2 Re-enactment - Sept. 15
Presented by New Oxford Area Historical Society and Borough of New Oxford
In honor of local veterans of World War II, New Oxford will stage a re-enactment of the liberation of a Dutch village by an Allied convoy.
On September 15, the center of town will travel back in time and place to the Netherlands, September 1944, a few months after the Allied armies invaded occupied France to liberate Europe from Nazi Germany.
Hosted by the New Oxford Area Historical Society in cooperation with the Borough of New Oxford, PA, the post-battle celebration will recognize the sacrifices of the local residents and veterans during the war. That afternoon, all are welcome to visit the encampment at the train station where the German camp will be set up, including the period vehicles used in the battle. The re-enactors will be available to answer questions about the training, uniforms, equipment and weaponry of average soldiers from the era.
