I volunteer at the Fox River Trolley Museum located outside of Chicago IL, and each year they host a WWII Living History Reenactment meant to simulate life in occupied France. There are a number of battles that take place with authentic WW2 era guns that are firing blanks. Unfortunately this years event was a little smaller than usual as there was another event (American Civil War Reenactment) happening at the same time. Nonetheless, I captured some good video footage and wanted to share some of it, with more to come.

I gave up with the two local RR museums to do something like this, none of them wanted to do an official WW2 event (though one does a Civil War event each year)...
